GOP counsel raises eyebrows with shopping bag at impeachment hearing

House GOP counsel Steve Castor is drawing some attention online for a shopping bag he brought to the House Judiciary Committee’s public impeachment hearing on Monday.

In footage that has been making the rounds on social media, the lawyer could be seen bringing the reusable grocery bag into the hearing and unloading his materials ahead of his testimony before lawmakers as part of the House’s ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump.   

The bag raised a number of eyebrows among political journalists.

George Conway, a conservative lawyer and the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, joked that it was a “very liberal-looking” bag for Castor.

There was also a bit of confusion over whether the bag is from Whole Foods or The Fresh Market.

The Fresh Market later announced on Monday that it was the maker behind Castor’s bag on Twitter.
 
“We’d like to announce that we are the official briefcase maker of Steve Castor. You can fill your briefcase up with files or yummy food (our preference),” the chain tweeted.
