NADLER STEPS IN: Rep. Nadler Blames Trump for ‘Growing Anti-Semitism in Our Political Dialogue’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.23.19

Rep. Jerry Nadler escalated his war-of-words with the White House Thursday evening; directly blaming President Trump for the “growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue” while ignoring months of anti-Israeli rhetoric from his Democratic colleagues.

“The growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue is repugnant. @realdonaldtrump’s comments about disloyalty are a vicious and dangerous anti-Semitic trope. And the Carlos Latuff cartoon forwarded by @RepRashida and @Ilhan can surely be read for its vile underlying message,” posted Nadler on social media.

A federal judge in Washington, DC slapped-down a legal gambit launched by House Democrats to propel their impeachment inquiry against President Trump earlier this month; calling the effort “superficial.”

“A D.C. federal judge on Wednesday shot down an attempt by House Judiciary Committee Democrats to link their subpoena for former White House counsel Don McGahn to a separate request for secret grand jury information from the Russia investigation after the Justice Department accused them of trying to ‘game the system,’” reports Fox News.

“[A]t first blush, the House Judiciary Committee’s view that the related case rule applies is understandable,” D.C. District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell wrote in her order rejecting the bid. “Nonetheless, closer examination demonstrates that these connections between the two cases are too superficial and attenuated for the instant McGahn Subpoena Case to qualify[.]”

“This later-filed, subpoena-enforcement suit involves no issues of fact or law common to the earlier Grand Jury application, nor does it focus on a common event or transaction such that the matters would be ‘related,’” the DOJ argued.
