FLASHBACK TO 2012: Rep. Nadler TRASHES ‘Shameful’ Move to Hold the Attorney General in Contempt

Rep. Jerrold Nadler led his House Judiciary Committee Tuesday in a vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in ‘Contempt of Congress’ despite calling the “politically-motivated” move “shameful” just years ago.

“Just joined the #walkout of the House chamber to protest the shameful, politically-motivated GOP vote holding AG Holder in contempt,” Nadler tweeted in 2012.

Nadler joined more than 100 Democrats in a “walkout” protest when Republican lawmakers voted to hold then-Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt.
