Today, as promised, we will look closely at the past and present of the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who has released a non-stop barrage of accusations against President Trump on many levels. His attacks have lasted for more than a year. In those attacks, he has accused President Trump of collusion, obstruction of justice, criminal violations of the emoluments clause of the Constitution, racism, sexism, misogyny, and for being just an all-around horrible person.
Nadler has been joined by many in the Democrat Party, none more vocal than Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) who has — in addition to his echoes of Nadler’s allegations of the President — claimed non-stop for more than a year that he has uncontroverted proof already of Trump’s multiple acts of obstruction of justice.
We will complete today’s story with the promised information hiding in plain sight about Rep. Nadler. But let’s begin by looking at all these allegations of Trump’s collusion with Russia in 2016.
Collusion is not a federal crime (except in the unique case of antitrust law), so we should all just stop using “collusion” as a short-hand for criminality. But that doesn’t mean that the alleged cooperation between the Trump campaign and Russia is of no criminal interest. To the contrary, if true, it may have violated any number of criminal prohibitions.
For example, if Donald Trump Jr. sought “dirt” on Hillary Clinton from the Russians, he might be charged with conspiring to violate the election laws of the United States, which prohibit foreign nationals from contributing any “thing of value” to an electoral campaign. The opposition dirt is at least plausibly a thing of value. And to the extent that the Trump campaign aided, abetted or advised the Russians (or any other hackers) about what would be most useful to steal from the Democrats or how best to enhance the impact of their release, they may well have violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
The word “collusion” has been a terrible one to use in the Trump-Russia saga, since it doesn’t accurately describe either the criminal or counterintelligence aspects of what we know. On the criminal side, the word that would best describe an agreement between the Trump campaign and Russia to commit any number of crimes (say, election fraud) would be “conspiracy”—something that the recent release of Donald Trump Jr.’s email chain might support.
Collusion is the descriptive word the news media has settled on to cover many alleged potential illegal actions by the Trump campaign, which could range from aiding and abetting (18 USC 2) to conspiracy per se (18 USC 371) to conspiring to violate several potentially applicable laws like: 18 USC 1030—fraud and related activity in connection with computers; 18 USC 1343—wire fraud; or 52 USC 30121—contributions and donations by foreign nationals. Also, 18 USC 2381—for, contrary to a widespread belief that there must be a declared war, the Justice Department as recently as 2006 indicted for “aid and comfort” to our enemies, the form of collusion better known as treason. Collusion is the perfect word to cover such crimes, pejorative and inclusive.
Adam Schiff KNOWS Trump is guilty — PERIOD!
“The Russians offered dirt on Hillary Clinton in writing and sent it to [Donald Trump Jr.],” Schiff stated. “And Don Jr.’s response was in writing and said, ‘As for your offer of foreign illegal help, I would love it.’ He accepted the offer.”
Noting that Team Trump later lied about the meeting and that represented the “personification of collusion,” Schiff added that Mueller had a different question—whether he could prove the crime of conspiracy.
“And as you know, well before the Mueller report, I was pointing out to the public, there is a difference between what we understand is collusion and whether you can prove all the elements of crime,” he said.
Schiff didn’t stop there. Even after the Mueller Report was released and Special Counsel Mueller testified before both the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees and even in answering continual committee questions from Democrats on the alleged Trump crimes and Mueller’s testimony that did NOT formally or informally indict Trump, Schiff doubled down on his “knowledge” of Trump wrongdoing.
Before we summarize and give you the information we uncovered on Nadler, it’s important to emphasize to you the following:
Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort have been given.
Remember that while listening to this short interview that Schiff believed was with Russian officials but were on-air radio announcers in the U.S. tricking Schiff. But participating in this interview, Schiff actually committed the exact same acts that he has continually accused Donald Trump Jr. committing, calling them Obstruction of Justice! (THIS AUDIO OF THE SCHIFF RADIO INTERVIEW CAN BE HEARD ONLY ON THE PODCAST)
First, by even taking this phone call from someone Schiff THOUGHT were Russians, he has committed exactly what he accused Don Jr. of doing talking with an accepting a meeting in that famous Trump Tower meeting. Secondly, he accepted their offer of sending to Schiff the “fake” proof of Trump collusion.
According to Schiff’s own words, he was guilty of the same crime he has alleged of Trump!
Nadler has never seen a camera he didn’t like, a microphone that he did not “know” was specifically for him, and never shunned participating in an interview to bash the President. But Nadler forgets about the documentation of EVERYTHING official committed by members of the federal government — including the Congressional Record.
The same man who once showed clear favoritism for President Clinton, an admitted perjurer, is now hellbent on continuing the witch hunt against President Trump despite the fact that Trump has been cleared by the special counsel. Will the hypocrisy never end with this man?
In a recent New York Times opinion piece, Nadler made veiled threats, innuendos, and salacious accusations against President Trump that have since been disproven. “When the full scope of the president’s misconduct has been revealed, when his lies are debunked and his abuses have been laid bare, I believe that members of Congress on both sides of the aisle will draft legislation to curb the worst of his offenses,” he wrote. “Put another way: If President Trump’s behavior wasn’t criminal, then perhaps it should have been.”
When the shoe was on the other foot, and Clinton had actually committed a crime, Nadler did his best to cover for him. Now that the fake collusion allegations against President Clinton have been thoroughly discredited and rejected by the special counsel, he’s looking for crimes that “should have been.”
Nadler was a young Congressmen during the Clinton White House years. He was there during the impeachment proceedings against President Trump. He voraciously stood with the President defending him against impeachment proceedings and blasting Republicans for taking any actions. What justification did the junior New York Congressman give for his insistence to NOT impeach Mr. Clinton? The exact same things he himself is using in his current demands to impeach Donald Trump!
Don’t take our word for it. Let’s go to the official record: Rep. Nadler’s actual speech before Congress. His speech is lengthy, so we will not put the entire speech in this story. Below in bullet points, we share the salient points of his contentions that will shock all, especially in light of his current rants against the President.
Nadler’s Speech before the House of Representatives regarding Bill Conton’s Impeachement: December 18, 1998
“The effect of impeachment is to overturn the popular will of the voters. We must not overturn an election and remove a President from office except to defend our system of government or our constitutional liberties against a dire threat, and we must not do so without an overwhelming consensus of the American people.
There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by another. Such an impeachment will produce divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come and will call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions.
Some members of the House may think the people have chosen badly, but it is the people’s choice and we must respect it absent a threat to our democracy that would justify overturning the repeated expression of their will at the ballot box. Members of Congress have no right to arrogate to themselves the power to nullify an election absent that compelling case.
This House is not a grand jury. To impeach the President would subject the country to the trauma of a trial in the Senate. It would paralyze the government for many months while the problems of Social Security, Medicare, a deteriorating world economy, and all our foreign concerns festered without proper attention. We cannot simply punt the duty to judge the facts to the Senate if we find mere ‘‘probable cause’’ that an impeachable offense may have been committed. To do so would be a derogation of our constitutional duty. The proponents of impeachment have provided no direct evidence of impeachable offenses. They rely solely on the findings of an ‘‘independent’’ counsel who has repeatedly mischaracterized evidence, failed to include exculpatory evidence, and consistently misstated the law.
Is the President above the law? Certainly not. He is subject to the criminal law — to indictment and prosecution when he leaves office like any other citizen, whether or not he is impeached. And if the Republican leadership allows a vote, he would likely be the third President in U.S. history, and the first since 1848, to be censured by the Congress. But impeachment is intended as a remedy to protect the nation, not as a punishment for a President.
The case is not there — there is far from sufficient evidence to support the allegations, and the allegations, even if proven, do not rise to the level of impeachable offenses. We should not dignify these articles of impeachment by sending them to the Senate. To do so would be an affront to the Constitution and would consign this House to the condemnation of history for generations to come.
The American people are watching, and they won’t forget. You may have the votes, you may have the muscle, but you lack the legitimacy of a national consensus and the Constitution. This partisan coup d’etat will go down in the history of this nation in infamy.”
What is most amazing to me and many other conservatives is that these Democrats who control the House believe they can lie, again and again, misrepresent acts committed by others they label as “illegal” while doing the same things themselves with impunity, and misrepresent the laws of the United States. What else? They categorically are doing their very best to remove a President that was duly and legally elected by the People of the United States!
This is an egregious moment in American history. If allowed to fulfill this travesty, it will destroy our election system, our trust in government, and send the nation back to the political environment in which it was first birthed — 250 years behind where we are today.
Do you know what’s saddest? They’re doing this with the deference if not full support of millions of Democrats who refuse to ferret out the truth for themselves. And these members of Congress are lying to their followers with no consideration for the Rule of Law, the Constitution, the will of the American voters, all the while trampling on the Truth.
Jerrold Nadler MUST be removed from the chairmanship of the House Judiciary Committee. Adam Schiff MUST be removed fro the chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee. And Americans who voted constitutionally and elected Donald Trump President of the United States MUST have their will rule over a group of tyrants who have been for 2.5 years attempting what is literally a coup to overthrow the presidency put in place not by members of Congress, but by millions of voters who those in Congress work for.
Wake up America. Or get ready for REAL Mob Rule.
