Democrat uses poultry props to chide "chicken" Barr

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic Representative Steve Cohen arrived at a hearing of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee carrying a bucket of fried chicken and a poultry figurine.

He said the props represented the nation's top law enforcement official, who canceled his planned testimony amid a dispute over the hearing format.

"The chicken Barr should have shown up today and answered questions," the Tennessee lawmaker told reporters, after he handed out pieces of fried chicken to other committee members.

Democrats accuse Barr and other administration officials of stonewalling their investigations into Trump's taxes, his businesses and other topics.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said on Thursday that he may hold Barr in contempt of Congress if the attorney general does not turn over an unredacted copy of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
