Nadler’s Insane Hypocrisy [OPINION]
House Judiciary Committee Chair and drama queen Gerald Nadler's antics might be worth a few laughs, had the American people not had it up to here with the foolish rantings from the left about Trump and Russia collusion.
After nearly three years and $35 million dollars and still no "there there," it is well past time to move on. Yet Nadler (D-New York) and his cohorts continue to push and push at this insane narrative.
Nadler's committee, for lack of better things to do, has voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress. The committee insists that it has a right to view the full, unredacted Mueller report, and that the report should be made public along with all of the support documentation used to reach the report's conclusions of no collusion, no obstruction.
Barr has made the report available for certain members of Congress to review but only in a closed and secure setting. That's not good enough, as only two members have even bothered to take advantage of the opportunity.
What Nadler and his band of merry men and women are demanding is illegal. I think any five-year-old can understand that portions of the report must be redacted by law to protect the innocent and so as not to compromise ongoing investigations. It's simple, not that difficult to understand. Nadler and crew know that by releasing the unredacted report, Barr would be breaking the law. They prefer a sideshow.
Nadler's theatrics don't match his actions. Who can forget how an outraged Gerald Nadler walked out as the same committee voted to hold Obama Administration AG Eric Holder in contempt relative to the arming drug cartels in Mexico?
Nadler makes comparisons between Trump and Richard Nixon. He calls Trump a dictator for using his executive powers to protect the unredacted Mueller report from unscrupulous congresspeople who would leak it in a second, should they be allowed to get their hands on it.
"We've talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis. We are now in it," says Nadler.
Defending the law is a constitutional crisis in the eyes of Gerald Nadler, yet he would not hesitate to plunge the country into a real constitutional crisis by impeaching the president without just cause. What a hypocrite.
The ranting of Gerald Nadler has gotten boring and childish. Gerry—it's over.
