“This partisan coup d’etat will go down in infamy in the history of our nation,” the congressman complained. Outraged, he wanted the nation to know why. “Mr. Speaker, this is clearly a partisan railroad job.”
No, that quote was not from a disgusted Republican. It was said 21 years ago, and the congressman was Jerrold Nadler defending perjurer and obstructionist-in-chief, Bill Clinton.
Fast forward to today. Jerrold Nadler has become Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that will preside over his own partisan railroad job.
In 1998 Nadler whined that the case against Bill Clinton was purely an illegitimate attempt to reverse the outcome of two presidential elections, “There are clearly some members of the Republican majority who have never accepted the results of the 1992 or 1996 elections.”
What he forgot to mention was that Bill Clinton lied (and later admitted to lying) before a federal grand jury. Nadler and his sleazy crew of Democrats flooded the airways with their ridiculous talking point “It’s all just about sex.” The first article was actually “all about perjury.”
Nadler shamelessly argued on the floor of the House that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to support the charges—there was. Then with a breathtaking display of oxymoronic reasoning that only Democrat hacks are capable of, Nadler argued that “even if proven true [those charges] do not rise to the level of impeachable offenses.”
So, the question is, will Nadler chair the upcoming hearings of the House Judiciary Committee and remember his arguments against impeaching another president? Clearly, President Trump has committed no perjury, nor has he tried to cover up, impede, or block investigators at any time. As per Bob Mueller and his thousand plus page report. In a rare lucid moment, Mueller said so unequivocally when pressed during his testimony.
Appearing on CNN after the Mueller debacle, Nadler was asked whether he still believed that President Trump obstructed justice. His response was ridiculous and bordered on nonsense: There are two types of obstruction of justice: criminal and noncriminal.
There have been obstructions of justice, he claimed. “Whether they are criminal obstruction is another question. But…the special prosecutor is limited in scope.” Congress, he preached has to look at the broader picture.
His insincere sermon continued, “We have the responsibility of protecting the rule of law…so that our democratic institutions are not greatly damaged by this president. And that’s what we intend to do.”
So, according to the Reverend Jerrold Nadler, the U.S. Government is the equivalent to a holy church that must not be sullied by a heretical President who tells Nancy Pelosi and her crowd of jackals to stay in their own lane: stop trying to undo the 2016 election and do something for the country for a change.
Unfortunately for normal people sick of the political stupidity, Jerrold Nadler is facing a primary election challenge. His opponent is more deeply radical than he is. So, if truth is the first casualty of political posturing, Nadler is going to posture, exaggerate, and lie like a rug to show his dopey constituents that he really is a Trump hater.
Democrats are the modern example of Ben Franklin’s observation that true democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. Fortunately, our founders foresaw people like the vulpine Adam Schiff and self-righteous Jerrold Nadler and gave us the U.S. Senate to control these idiots.
