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 article goes on to state the following:

The bag raised a number of eyebrows among political journalists.

Some Twitter commenters poked fun at Castor, while some commiserated (see examples below).

George Conway even weighed in, writing, “idk that’s a very liberal-looking amazon-wapo kinda bag Castor has and I hope the security screeners checked it for tofu and kale.”

The furor over the bag caught the attention of The Fresh Market, the grocery store behind the reusable shopping bag.

“We’d like to announce that we are the official briefcase maker of Steve Castor,” the store tweeted. “You can fill your briefcase up with files or yummy food (our preference),”

“The grocery chain also said it would be offering a promotion for users interested in getting their hands on the same ‘briefcase’ from now until Tuesday,” The Hill reports.
