(NBC News) – A Democratic congressman from Tennessee brought a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken (and a ceramic chicken) to make his feelings known about Attorney General William Barr opting to not testify in front of the house committee.
Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., brought the props to the hearing as a way to mock Barr for being, as he called it, afraid to face the committee. NBC also reports that a representative from Florida helped herself to a piece of fried chicken.
The committee moved forward Thursday morning with the hearing on special counsel Robert Mueller’s report even though Barr skipped out on testifying.
Barr’s refusal to testify is because he and the Democratic leaders were are odds over the hearing’s format.
