GOP senator makes odd comment during Barr hearing: 'You don't need a bar and hooker'

Today's hearing with Attorney General William Barr is notable for a lot of reasons, including accusations that he lied under oath and also that he misrepresented all of Mueller's findings.

But - in addition to that - Republicans in Congress, in an attempt to cover his back and the rest of the Trump administration, are saying the darnedest things while questioning him.

Here's one of them that just happened a few moments ago: Senator Ben Sasse just said this with a straight face, causing other people in the room sitting directly behind Barr to lose their straight faces.

"In a digital cyber era, you don’t need a bar and a hooker anymore, you can surround people digitally.”

This caused Lindsey Graham to say “Minus the bar and hooker, we’ll have hearings about all that stuff.”

That's when Barr finally let out a big smile and laugh.

The hearing is still ongoing after more than three hours so far.
