U.S: House Judiciary Chairman involved in accident as Barr hearing delayed – report


U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler was uninjured in a car accident on Tuesday, CNN reported, but a high-profile hearing with Attorney General William Barr has been delayed until later in the day.

Nadler was one of the Democratic representatives who argued before the U.S. Senate for conviction after the House impeached Republican President Donald Trump earlier this year.
