Things got a little more tense during an already heated House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday when Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler tried to deny Attorney General Bill Barr a five-minute break.
[…] “Sorry, Mr. Chairman, could we take a five-minute break? Could we take a five-minute break, Mr. Chairman?” Barr asked as Nadler was about to introduce another questioner.
“No!” Nadler shouted.
A GOP congressman spoke up and insisted that granting such breaks is “a common courtesy of every witness.”
