DEMS in DENIAL: Nadler Says Portland Riots ‘Are a Myth’ When Asked to Disavow Violent Protesters

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.27.20

Congressman Jerry Nadler surprised viewers on social media over the weekend when asked if he disavows violent protests in American cities; saying the riots “are a myth that’s being spread only in Washington.”

“There’s violence across the whole country. Do you disavow the violence from Antifa that’s happening in Portland right now?” asked one independent journalist.

“That’s a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, DC,” said Nadler.

“Sir, there’s videos everywhere. There’s fires, riots, they’re throwing fireworks at federal officers, look online,” responded the reporter. “Meanwhile, the whole city is on fire and they’re trying to burn down the courthouse.

'FANTASY ISLAND': Doug Collins RIPS Nadler to His Face, Says Dems ‘Lost in Impeachment Oz’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.12.19

GOP Rep. Doug Collins slammed Congressman Jerrold Nadler during fiery hearings on Capitol Hill Thursday; saying House Democrats are “lost in impeachment Oz” and are unable to “find their way out of the mess.”

“Today’s ambiguity is a product of the chairman’s own making because there is an easy way to know exactly whether this committee is in #impeachment proceedings: It’s called a vote. A vote of the full House of Representatives,” posted Collins on social media.

“Democrats followed the yellow brick road, and now they’re fully lost in impeachment Oz—try as they might, they can’t find their way out of the mess they’ve made because they think ‘words don’t matter,’” he added.


 

House Democrats voted Thursday to officially unveil their “guidelines” surrounding an investigation into whether they will recommend filing articles of impeachment against President Trump.

The proposal left most lawmakers -including many Democrats- confused and bewildered as to what the resolution actually means.

“Some call this process an impeachment inquiry. Some call it an impeachment investigation. There is no legal difference between these terms, and I no longer care to argue about the nomenclature,” Nadler said as he opened the hearing. “But let me clear up any remaining doubt: The conduct under investigation poses a threat to our democracy. We have an obligation to respond to this threat. And we are doing so.”

GOP Rep. Doug Collins slammed Nadler’s inquiry, saying his Committee has “become a giant Instagram filter … it’s put in there to look like something, but it’s really not.”

“My colleagues know very well they don’t have the votes to authorize impeachment proceedings on the House floor, but they want to impeach the president anyway,” Collins said. “So, they are pretending to initiate impeachment.”

“Under these procedures, when we have finished these hearings and considered as much evidence we are able to gather, we will decide whether to refer articles of impeachment to the House floor,” Nadler said in his opening statement.

BREAKING NOW: House Dems Revolt Against Nadler’s Committee, Vote to Hold Barr ‘In Civil Contempt’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.11.19

House Democrats openly rebuked their own Judiciary Committee Tuesday; voting to hold the Attorney General in “civil contempt” hours after Chair Jerrold Nadler backed-away from a formal vote after receiving new information from the Department of Justice.

“In a party-line 229-191 vote, House Democrats on Tuesday passed a civil enforcement resolution that effectively holds Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress — just a day after a key Democrat-led committee postponed its own contempt vote and said the Justice Department was cooperating with its investigation,” reports Fox News.

“The whiplash of legislative action infuriated House Republicans, who said Democrats were violating committee rules and that federal law and executive privilege prevented Barr and McGahn from turning over all the requested documents. The ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Doug Collins, accused his colleagues of seeking a ‘re-do’ of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation for cynical political gain,” adds the article.

Original Story: June 10, 2019

Rep. Jerrold Nadler confirmed Monday that the House Judiciary Committee will “press pause” on its efforts to hold Attorney General William Barr in Contempt of Congress.

“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler announced Monday that he plans to hit pause on efforts to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt, after reaching a deal with the Justice Department for access to evidence related to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report,” reports Fox News.

Nadler’s office released a written statement hours after making an agreement with the DOJ to review more details of the Mueller report.

“I am pleased to announce that the Department of Justice has agreed to begin complying with our committee’s subpoena by opening Robert Mueller’s most important files to us, providing us with key evidence that the Special Counsel used to assess whether the President and others obstructed justice or were engaged in other misconduct,” Nadler said. “These documents will allow us to perform our constitutional duties and decide how to respond to the allegations laid out against the President by the Special Counsel.”

Just last week, Nadler refused to back-down from his renewed calls for more investigations into the Trump administration; asserting Mueller’s report had evidence of “multiple crimes.”

“We’re investigating all of the things we would investigate, frankly, in an impeachment inquiry. We are starting with the Mueller report which shows ample evidence of multiple crimes of obstruction of justice and abuse of power. We will have testimony about that,” said Nadler.

“It may very well come to a formal impeachment inquiry, we will see,” he added.
