WASHINGTON, D.C. – This actually just happened in Washington, D.C. Jerry Nadler just scolded three members of Congress to stop violating the safety of the members of the committee after the three Republican Congressmen removed their face masks to sip coffee during the interrogation of Attorney General William Barr at today’s Justice Department oversight meeting.
“I would ask you stop violating the safety of the members of the committee, and stop holding themselves out for not wearing their mask,” Nadler said.
“Is it permissible to drink coffee?” one Congressman asked.
“It is NOT permissible!” Nadler said as he banged his gavel. Scroll down below for a video of Nadler unmasked in public.
