Tool of the Week: Jerry Nadler, the impeachment showman

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 16,  2019

Leading a political dog and pony show is exhausting. 

Just ask House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler. 

After a marathon hearing Thursday on House Democrats’ (forgive the phrase) trumped up charges, Nadler informed stunned committee Republicans that it was too late to vote. 

Instead, Nadler advised his colleagues “on both sides of the aisle” to “search their consciences” before they came back Friday morning and cast their vote on the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. 

It was a strange request from a man not known to have a conscience. Some will tell you that Nadler’s cancer-ridden conscience was removed years ago and replaced with a cymbals-clashing plastic monkey in striped pants. 

What wasn’t strange was the timing of Nadler’s request. It was indeed very late. Too late to get the Democratic Party’s network news PR agents to cover his big final scene. No, Jerry and the Democrats needed a wide-awake audience and full coverage because, really, the show of impeachment is really what the Dems’ crusade against Trump is really all about. 

The conclusion, of course, was already written, a preordained outcome. In a party-line vote of 23-17, Democrats voted to forward their impeachment charges to the full House. Expect a similar outcome when majority Democrats vote to impeach the president as soon as next week. 

Never mind that they have failed to provide evidence of actual “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Never mind that polling shows Americans, even those who distrust Trump, are on to the Democrats’ scheme to overturn an election — and to attempt to influence the results of the next. 

Never mind that Nadler, 21 years and many, many pounds ago, during the Clinton impeachment debate said, “There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment substantially supported by one of our major political parties and largely opposed by the other.” 

It takes a real tool to disregard history for the Siren song of political opportunity. 

Jerry Nadler is such a tool. 

He is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
