    Nadler: This is Formal Impeachment Proceedings

    Source: Politico

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said publicly for the first time on Thursday that his panel is conducting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, adding that the committee will decide by the end of the year whether to refer articles of impeachment to the House floor.

    The committee has said as much in recent court filings as it seeks former special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury materials and testimony from his investigation’s star witnesses. But it was a rare rhetorical escalation from the New York Democrat, who has privately pushed Speaker Nancy Pelosi to support a formal inquiry of whether to remove the president from office.

    He's right, actually - and he's also backing Pelosi into a corner.

    The Democratic Party seems determined to self destruct.


    FYI: the bad grammar is Nadler's.

    I told you that weeks ago, impeachment investigations are underway, and have been for some time now. Nancy Pelosi is well aware of what's going on, and she wouldn't change a thing.

    Er, maybe you told someone else. Carpe and I had an argument along these lines. I didn't state it explicitly, but yeah, I knew the Committee's investigation itself constituted part of the impeachment process.

    Pelosi has completely lost control of the House - having Nadler come out publicly like this hurts her position even more.

    This is likely to blow up in their faces even worse than the Mueller report did - not counting the testimony that made things even worse.

    It's bad enough that they are attempting a coup - it's worse that they are so incredibly incompetent at it.

    So, the separate but equal doctrine and Congressional oversight of Presidential power is now considered by conservatives to be the attempt at a coup. Just what the wannabe dictator wants you to believe. And it's working. So sad!

    No Russian Collusion. Two years of investigation and they proved nothing - but won't give up.

    Began discussion of impeachment PRIOR to inauguration.

    Yes, the argument that they are just carrying out their legal duties is past the point of breaking. Looks like a duck - isn't a chicken.

    No, actually, it's the ABUSE of that oversight.

    I missed this the first time - Jim, have you lost your mind?!?! Separate but equal was the doctrine that allowed Jim Crow!!!! Please, please tell me you meant 'separation of church and state'.

    Which doesn't make sense either - but at least it hasn't been explicitly overturned by the Supreme Court (one of the Circuit courts had issues with it, however).

    I think what the boy meant was "separation of powers" - co-equal branches of government, checks and balances. But, being a closet racist, he slipped up and snagged the Jim Crow law.

    Powers, Tea, powers! Moscowpoke isn't as stupid a commie pinko as he looks, he knew what I meant. He just likes to point out the grammatical, spelling and other errors of others because it makes him feel superior without having to actually address the argument itself.
