Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “The Hill's 12:30 Report: Dems fight with Barr escalates”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Hill's 12:30 Report: Breaking - Trump says Moore withdrawing from Fed consideration | Pelosi accuses Barr of committing a crime by lying to Congress | DOJ fires back at 'baseless attack' | House Dems blast Barr for skipping hearing | Dem brings fried chicken to mock AG | Rift opens between Mueller, Barr | Bennet jumps into 2020 race | Buttigieg gets 'First Family' Time cover | Japan's PM installs beaver door knocker | Wendy's introduces Frosty cookie sundae 

Barr. William BarrWilliam Pelham BarrWall Street Journal editorial board: Dems vilifying Barr for 'acting like a real Attorney General' Biden says Barr 'should' resign: 'He's lost the confidence of the American people' Clinton: Calling for Barr resignation 'makes perfect sense' MORE. 

Attorney General William Barr refused to testify for his planned House Judiciary Committee hearing today, arguing that Democrats have put "unprecedented" conditions on his appearance. Barr's refusal sets up a major clash between Barr and House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee.

To call attention to his absence: The House Judiciary Committee left an empty chair in the committee room to highlight Barr's absence.

Funny tidbit -- this is all of us: "Rep. Steve CohenStephen (Steve) Ira CohenDem lawmaker: Mueller must resign so he can testify 'free' from Barr's 'control' Dems set to debate Trump impeachment in post-Mueller era Patricia Arquette to push for ERA at hearing MORE (D-Tenn.) just arrived to the Judiciary hearing with a bucket of KFC fried chicken. He is eating the chicken. It is not even 9am yet." (Via Politico's Andrew Desiderio)
