Most people don’t know that Jerry Nadler and President Trump go way back. Nadler, then known as fat jerry was a local politician and he fought Trump on nearly everything.
Trump, trying to bring jobs and prosperity to New York, hated when these low-level politicians blocked progress.
They needed to be greased to make things happen, which is why Trump holds them in such disdain.
Today, Nadler is leading the inquisition of Trump so Fox News did some digging and exposed him as another political hypocrite.
From Fox News:
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) said Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) engaged in the “dictionary [definition of] hypocrisy” when he called Tuesday for the Mueller report to be released in full.
Nadler, along with fellow Democratic committee chairs Richie Neal (Mass.), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Adam Schiff (Calif.), Elijah Cummings (Md.) and Eliot Engel (N.Y.) warned the DOJ of forthcoming subpoenas for the full Mueller report on alleged Trump collusion.
“It’s amazing to see right now… when you have your dreams come crashing down,” Collins said.
Bill Hemmer played video from a 1998 PBS interview in which Nadler blasted calls for the release of then-Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr’s “Whitewater” report.
Starr had been appointed to investigate President Clinton and others in regard to an Arkansas land deal, and ended up discovering the Monica Lewinsky affair.
In the interview with Charlie Rose, Nadler said it was “a matter of decency and protecting people’s privacy rights” not to release the Whitewater report.
“It represents statements [made by witnesses] that may or may not be true… [and is] unfair to release,” he said.
Collins said that is a stark contrast to the Manhattan Democrat’s current demand to Attorney General Bill Barr.
Collins remarked that Nadler and his Democratic brethren may just be facing a “base problem” because they don’t want to tell the voters that “they don’t have anything to tear down [Donald Trump].”
