But Democrats did not actually want to hear Barr answer questions. They wanted to take shot after shot after shot at him. So this might become known as the “reclaiming my time” hearing. This or that Democratic committee member would attack Barr and then, after the prefatory attacking, ask him a question. Then, as Barr began to answer, they would interrupt and say, “Reclaiming my time,” and begin attacking him again.
Which is when Barr became (almost) the only adult in the room.
