    Congress’ patience with the Department of Justice is running thin, as they’re dragging their feet in releasing troves of documents relating to the Russia investigation and Hillary Clinton On the latter, the DOJ has appointed a special lawyer to oversee the release of some 3,600 pages of new documents, which has irked some congressional Republicans (via Politico): The Justice Department has appointed a U.S. attorney to oversee the release of documents related to the FBI’s 2016 investigation of Hillary Clinton amid Republican complaints — including from President Donald Trump — that the DOJ is slow-walking their release.Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) I watched it on YouTube so you dont have to, and trust me, you dont want to. Fergie butchered the Star Spangled Banner before the NBA All Star game last night so badly that Roseanne Barr was standing and yelling Im not the worst anymore! Im not the worst anymore! Fergie, sounding for all the world like a lounge singer skit on Saturday Night Live, was so awful that several players could be seen openly mocking her. She was so bad that commentator Shaquille ONeal looked at Charles Barkley afterwards and...

    Representative Nadler is a shrewd lawyer but he has spent his life in legislatures rather than courtrooms. Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has written a six-page response to the FISA-abuse memo published Friday by the committees Republican staffers under the direction of Chairman Devin Nunes (R., Calif.). I wont get sidetracked by the fact that Nadlers Dear Democratic Colleague letter has been exclusively obtained by NBC News i.e., that it was leaked to the media, whereas the so-called Nunes memo was provided to committee Democrats before publication so they could...
  • Don't Be Fooled: Democrats Are Eyeing Trump's Impeachment With This Guy On House Judiciary

    If there is a blue wave next year, expect impeachment proceedings, or endless investigations into the Trump White House, from Democrats. Theyre already laying the groundwork for that course of action with their latest pick to fill the top minority spot on the House Judiciary Committee. With Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) exiting public life after allegations of sexual harassment, one of which involved a $27,000 settlement in 2015, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) took his place. Hes a constitutional law expert, so a fitting background for Democrats who want someone to be the point of the lance in their fight against...

    The Democratic Party, on Wednesday, voted overwhelmingly for Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to replace resigned Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) on the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler, a constitutional law expert, won the spot over Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), an architect of immigration legislation, by secret ballot with 118 to 72 votes. The Washington Post noted on Thursday that the decision to fill their top spot on the committee demonstrates the Democratic Partys willingness [t]o ready themselves for a battle with Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings. Should the Democrats regain control of the House during next years mid-term elections, they...
  • House votes to curb Syrian refugees, snubs Obama veto threat (veto-proof 289-137 margin)

    In a stinging rebuke to President Barack Obama by Republicans and Democrats, the House ignored a veto threat Thursday and overwhelmingly approved GOP legislation erecting fresh hurdles for Syrian and Iraqi refugees trying to enter the United States. Forty-seven Democrats joined all but two Republicans as the House passed the measure by a veto-proof 289-137 margin, a major setback to the lame duck president on an issue —the Islamic State group and the refugees fleeing it — that shows no signs of easing. The vote exceeded the two-thirds majority required to override a veto, and came despite a rushed, early...

    Speaking on the House floor Friday in opposition to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504), Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said the requirement that a baby who survives an abortion be taken to the hospital may kill children. It may be that the baby is too frail to transport, but along comes this bill and says, we dont care about the real situation that doctor faces with that infant. We know how to practice medicine in every situationwe in Congress. So were going to say it must be brought to the hospital, even if that may kill the child....

    Representative Jerrold Nadler, shown in 2014, is the lone Jewish Democrat from New York to endorse an agreement with Iran. Credit Andrew Burton/Getty Images Representative Jerrold Nadler was being pulled hard from all sides. Close allies in the pro-Israel community told him a nuclear deal with Iran would doom the Jewish state. His Jewish colleagues in New Yorks congressional delegation had all condemned the pact. Then there was the lobbying from President Obama, first with a phone call, followed by a face-to-face talk in the White House Mr. Nadlers first such meeting in Mr. Obamas tenure.

    In a sometimes heated meeting with Israels ambassador to the U.S., several House Democrats expressed anger Wednesday over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus acceptance of a Republican invitation to address Congress next month. Some of the seven lawmakersall of whom are Jewish and strong supporters of Israelurged the prime minister to postpone the speech or hold it somewhere other than Congress, participants said. They told Ambassador Ron Dermer that Netanyahu was unwise to accept a GOP invitation that bypassed President Barack Obama, and to schedule the speech only two weeks before Netanyahu seeks another term in Israels elections. The meetings purpose...

    Theres a narrative emerging among leftists pundits, commentators, and columnists that the current government shutdown is due to a fundamental flaw in the American form of government. Chris Hayes on MSNBC (ya know, the guy that looks like a 16 year old wannabe economist?) recently dedicated an entire segment of his show to exposing the fatal flaw in our Constitution. According to MSNBCs woefully statist anchor, our Constitutional form of government inhibits the ability for government to adequately (or speedily) race toward action. Which, in a way, is true. Fascism, in comparison, enables for a rapid-response-government that forfeits deliberation for...

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday it is morally outrageous to ban abortions after five months of pregnancy. It is morally outrageous, frankly, Nadler said about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), a bill that would ban abortions 20 weeks post-fertilization, or five months into pregnancy. Here we go again, he said. Every single year we have to go through the same nonsense with the same morally presumptuous, morally arrogant attitude that we know better. We know better than women and their doctors. We know better about their health care. We know better about their moral choices in...

    U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) announced Sunday that she has spearheaded a bipartisan letter calling on the French government to cancel plans to release a convicted terrorist who was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of an American and an Israeli diplomat. The letter, which was sent to Frances Ambassador to the United States, urges French officials to stop the release of George Ibrahim Abdallah, the former head of the Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Brigade who was convicted in 1987 of killing an Israeli diplomat and a U.S. military attach. The U.S. State Department has also expressed its opposition...

    For liberals facts are never really important. Truth to liberals like Democrat New York City Congressman Jerrold Nadler is what he feels it is. Nadler has said: Hunters dont use large ammunition clips, and as far as self- defense, I mean who are you defending yourself against? If youre defending yourself against a robber two or three or four shots should be enoughperiod. Its a safe bet Nadler has never faced an assailant fueled by adrenalin drugs and alcohol. That doesnt matter, of course, since no one will ever challenge Nadler on his supposed knowledge of the danger presented by...

    In one of the worst school shootings in American history, over two dozen were left dead at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school earlier today. And, although many facts have yet to emerge, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called for the public to learn from yet another senseless and horrific act of violence involving guns, and for the government to act in response. We as a society must unify and once and for all crack down on the guns that have cost the lives of far too many innocent Americans, Mr. Cuomo said in a statement. Let this terrible tragedy finally...

    Today, following the shooting massacre of 20 children in a Connecticut school, President Obama said that "meaningful action" needed to be taken to prevent such tragedies from happening in the future. But what "meaningful action" can Obama actually take, given Republican control of the House and Congress' deeply felt fear of the politically mighty National Rifle Association? And politics aside, what new laws would actually solve or make a dent in the country's crazed-gunman problem? Rep. Jerry Nadler said thinks that the president has only one option. "Theres only one meaningful action he can take, which is to take on...

    A veteran Democratic lawmaker believes the nation will go along with stronger gun control laws if President Obama exploits the Newtown, Conn., tragedy and nudges Congress to action. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who represents portions of New York City, said he was encouraged by Mr. Obamas statement on Friday afternoon that the mass shooting, which claimed the lives of 20 young children, requires meaningful action by Congress, but hopes those words turn into concrete legislation. These incidents, these horrible, horrible incidents are happening more and more frequently. And they will continue to happen more and more frequently until someone with...
