Jerry Nadler: Bumbling Or Brilliant?

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

Jerry Nadler, the veteran House Democrat who is leading the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment-like inquiry into President Trump and his administration, has deeply angered Republicans, attracted anonymous barbs from fellow Democrats but has largely earned the respect and praise from his own party in its quest to investigate the president.

“Nader is doing a spectacular job,” Rep. David N. Cicilline, D-R.I., a member of the Judiciary Committee, told the Washington Examiner. “Our chairman is aggressively pursuing witnesses and documents and working with all the members of the committee.”

Nadler, Cicilline said, “is providing extraordinary leadership.”

Not everyone agrees. Unnamed critics on the Democratic side have complained Nadler, D-N.Y., is bumbling at the helm of the Judiciary Committee, allowing a slew of critical witnesses to blow off subpoenas without reprimand and not moving strategically to get an impeachment inquiry started before the 2020 election.

They also fault him for failing to secure the testimony of Attorney General William Barr and special counsel Robert Mueller.

Republicans on the panel aren’t happy either.

They believe Nadler has had difficulties establishing a leadership role as chairman, a position he assumed in January, and they say he has lost control over the Democrats on the committee.

They point to increasing pressure from progressive Democrats seeking impeachment, and say Nadler’s desire to accommodate them has led to chaos on the panel.

Prominent progressive Democrats have been stepping up calls for impeachment.

“If now isn't the time ... what is the bar, what is the line that we're waiting to be crossed for an impeachment inquiry, and so far, it doesn't seem like there is one,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., told CNN last week.

More than half of the Judiciary Committee’s two dozen Democrats, including Cicilline, now support immediately opening an impeachment inquiry which has ramped up pressure on Nadler, the GOP contends.

“He’s got tremendous challenges because the Democratic base wants to impeach this president,” longtime Judiciary Committee member Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, told the Washington Examiner. “I like Jerry on a personal level, but I think he’s struggling somewhat.”

The panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., has urged Nadler to establish better control over the committee proceedings, which at times have devolved into theatrics and name calling aimed at the Trump administration.

When Barr refused to show up for a last month hearing, for example, Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., dug into a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken on the dais, across from the empty witness chair.

Republicans also accused Nadler of holding a sham hearing on the Mueller report last week that featured Watergate figure and convicted felon John Dean, who was President Nixon’s former White House counsel.

“You are functionally here as a prop because they can't impeach President Trump because 70 percent of Democrats want something that 60 percent of Americans don’t,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said to Dean. “So, they are in this no-win situation, and you sit before us here with no knowledge of a single fact on the Mueller report on a hearing entitled 'Lessons From the Mueller Report.'”

Nadler declined to comment when asked in the Capitol about his approach.

Democrats on the panel have thwarted rules against personal attacks against the president, Collins wrote to Nadler last week. Committee Democrats have called Trump “a pathetic person,” who “turned the government of the United States into a moneymaking operation,” for example.

“He’s set up his members to be in position to just make personal attacks against the president,” one GOP aide lamented.

Collins’ letter to Nadler chastised him for failing to rein in Trump-hating Democrats on the committee.

The Democrats dug up John Dean so they could eat chicken in one hand and wank in the other. Nadler is just a focal point for cameras. Kind of like a YouTube loop of a puppy chasing its tail.

Given the lack of attendance by the public at recent 'Impeach' rallies, Nadler's doing a great job! Keep up the good work Jerry! :thumbsup:

Why do they need an impeachment inquiry started before the 2020 election if Biden is "far ahead in the polls"? :rofl:

Why do they need impeachment inquiry started before the 2020 election unless it`s political?
