Williams Barr’s Kentucky Fried Appearance Before Congress, in Pictures
Steve Cohen (D-TN) Takes His Seat Holding a Ceramic Chicken
Attorney General William Barr bailed on testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) brought some chicken to replace him.
The Witness Chair Reserved for Attorney General William Barr Sits Empty
Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. He was grilled mercilessly by Democrats, many of which have called for him to resign. He didn’t want to endure another flogging the next day before a Democrat-led committee.
“Chicken Barr should have shown up today and answered questions,” said Cohen.

Though Barr is abstaining, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to testify before the Judiciary Committee “sometime in May.” Barr claimed on Wednesdsay that Mueller has no issue with the initial conclusions he released in March, despite a letter Mueller’s office sent to Barr arguing the conclusions did “not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the investigation.
The resemblance is uncanny.
Jerry Nadler Approved of the Stunt
Not so funny was the chairman’s threat to hold Barr in contempt of court if he fails to comply with a subpoena for the unredacted Mueller report.
