At the beginning of a House Judiciary Committee hearing where acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is taking questions, committee chair Rep. Jerrold Nadler reminded everybody that each Q & A turn would be limited to five minutes. During Nadler’s round of questioning with Whitaker, the congressman was reminded of something:
Nadler asks Whitaker if he's been asked to approve any of Mueller's moves.
Whitaker: “Mr Chairman, I see that your five minutes is up I’m here voluntarily I agreed to five-minute rounds”

WOW. Whitaker tells Nadler — the committee chairman — that he should stop asking questions.
"Mr. chairman, I see that your 5 minutes is up."

In an extraordinary move, Acting AG Whitaker cut off Chairman Nadler's questioning by noting:

The Dems on the committee are trying to redirect almost every topic back to the Russia investigation, and Whitaker has repeatedly said that he wouldn’t answer questions about his private conversations with the president.
