After his stunt involving a bucket of KFC laid an egg, Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen is back at it again. 

This time the Memphis Congressman is demanding the Sergeant-at-Arms detain Attorney General William Barr and force him to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.

Per The Daily Caller:

Cooper introduced the segment by pointing out Cohen’s “chicken Barr” stunt on Thursday after the attorney general failed to comply with his committee’s request to appear. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler has threatened contempt proceedings if Barr doesn’t appear on Monday.

“I have no reason to believe they’ll do anything that is in keeping with the traditions of the relationship between the executive and the judicial as equal branches of government,” Cohen said, responding to Cooper’s question about how he thinks Barr will respond. “I think they will stonewall at all costs because they — they know that they can’t give up information and data or the president will be exposed for the type of person and the actions he’s undertaken.”

When asked what contempt proceedings would look like, the Tennessee Democrat expressed his “hope” that “it would be inherent contempt … because we go out and take him and bring him in and have him personally brought to the House.”

After being pressed, Cohen told Cooper said he'd go as far as having Barr, the nation's top law enforcement officer, locked up.
