While testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Friday, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker had to remind Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) that his five minutes of questioning had expired.

Nadler and Whitaker had been engaging in a very contentious back and forth regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“Now, in your capacity as acting attorney general, have you ever been asked to approve any request or action to be taken by the special counsel?” Nadler asked.

“Mr. Chairman, I see your five minutes is up,” Whitaker responded.

Several people in attendance at the hearing started to laugh at Whitaker’s response, including Nadler.
