E. Patriot – Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) is the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
Nadler has been one of the leading proponents of the Russian conspiracy hoax directed at impeaching President Trump.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finished his investigation and has released his final report. On page two of Attorney General William Barr’s summary letter he quotes from the final Mueller Report:
“[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Nadler tells that the word of Attorney General Barr is no good. Not even when it was buttressed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed, authorized, and oversaw the special counsel’s investigation.
Somewhat hypocritical for a man who only months ago was charging President Trump with undermining our “great democratic institution” when the president spoke out against the phony investigation, wouldn’t you say?
Nadler now demands to see the entire report without redactions even though he knows that Department of Justice rules do not permit that.
On March 22nd, Mueller released his report. AG Barr reviewed the report and sent a letter to congress two days later summarizing the findings pending the release of a the total report with mandated redactions
Barr wrote to Congress that he might redact grand jury testimony, information related to ongoing investigations, sensitive or classified information, and “information that would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties,” before releasing the report.
Nadler, however, continues demanding the report be released in its entirety and without the mandated reductions Nadler and his fellow Democrats demanded in 1998:.
Questioner: “Are you willing to negotiate any middle group in terms of redactions?”
Nadler: “No! The committee must see everything.”
But Nadler, didn’t always sing from the same hymnal book.
In 1998, Rep.Jerry Nadler strongly opposed the release of the Starr Report on Bill Clinton. No information whatsoever would or could be legally released. But with the NO COLLUSION Mueller Report, which the Dems hate, he wants it all. NOTHING WILL EVER SATISFY THEM! @foxandfriends

Here’s Nadler, in 1998, explaining to Charlie Rose all of the reasons that the Starr Report – outlining Bill Clinton’s “activities” – must not be released without significant redactions beings made first:
We present Nadler in his own words when he adamantly opposed releasing that special counsel’s report:
“It’s grand jury material. It represents statements which may or may not be true by various witnesses. Salacious material. All kinds of material that it would be unfair to release,”
“as a matter of decency and protecting people’s privacy rights, people who may be totally innocent third parties, what must not be released at all.”
Nadler and his fellow Democrats are desperate to regain control of the narrative and only a new source of “unverified and salacious” material, as Comey described the Steele Dossier to be, can help them make that happen. That and the compliant Marxist media.
After the FBI, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Mueller Report all admitted there was no collusion, you’d expect an honest media to admit they backed the wrong horse in the Dems’ collusion delusion.
Don’t hold your breath. While the mainstream media is not likely to make the same mistake of going all-in reporting collusion as a fact again, expect them to breathlessly report on Dems’ efforts to obtain classified materials as though our republic hangs in the balance if they aren’t released.
This is the height of yellow journalism.
The facts suggest that Democrats always knew there hadn’t been any coordination between Donald Trump or members of his campaign team, and Russia because the scheme was launched at the highest level of the Obama administration.
It was all an elaborate hoax, that if the public ever catches onto it, is likely to destroy the Democratic Party. Given that potentiality, it’s no wonder Democrats like Nadler are violating every ethic and moral standard to save their lying, sorry asses.
