CAPITOL HILL – (Audio: House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) closing today’s hearing as Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) attempts to question parliamentary procedure. Nadler abruptly gavels and shuts off Gaetz’s mic.)

That was House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) closing today’s hearing after Attorney General William Barr didn’t show up and as Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) attempts to question parliamentary procedure. Nadler abruptly gavels the hearing and shuts off Gaetz’s mic.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) rejects Democrats’ claim that Barr lied to Congress and committed a crime.

McCarthy says, “I do not believe Attorney General Barr lied; I believe he’s been very transparent in all of this. I think if people are looking at who has lied in the process, simply look at Chairman Nadler.”

Looking forward, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said today that the Senate will not take up a House bill that would force President Trump to keep the U.S. in the Paris climate agreement.
