They had nothing to say after this…
Attorney General William Barr was recently told to appear before the House Judiciary Committee and was berated with questions from the Democrats.
A CNN report stated that the “Democrats were out for blood.”
“Democrats repeatedly cut off Barr’s responses, accused him of being wrong or lying and made clear they weren’t interested in the explanations he was offering. Barr wasn’t allowed extra time at the end of each lawmaker’s five minutes to respond to questions that witnesses typically receive — forcing Republicans to use their time to let Barr push back on the Democratic accusations.”
However, the relentless attack from the Democrats did not phase Barr. He hit back at them with every question.
He called out the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party by saying, “What makes me concerned for the country is that this is the first time in my memory that the leaders of one of our great two political parties, the Democratic Party, are not coming out and condemning mob violence and the attack on federal courts. Why can’t we just say: ‘Violence against federal courts has to stop?’ Could we hear something like that?”

Barr was so unfazed, when Rep. Madeleine Dean spat, “Attorney General, the time is mine. We’ve waited a long time for you to come here. The time is mine.”
His response was, “You’ve waited to talk to me like this? You didn’t need to wait so long.” Before proceeding to drink his coffee.
