Opinion| Democratic House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York seems to be losing all respect for Congress.
According to DavidHarrisJr.com, Nadler “refuses to admit that the Mueller investigation found no collusion and no crimes committed by President Trump. He continues to claim that the Mueller report shows Trump committed multiple crimes, even though nobody else, including Robert Mueller himself, said there aren’t.”
Nadler said, “We’re investigating all of the things we would investigate, frankly, in an impeachment inquiry.”

“We are starting with the Mueller report, which shows ample evidence of multiple crimes of obstruction of justice and abuse of power. We will have testimony about that,” the New York Democrat continued.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report really doesn’t show any evidence of crimes.
According to DavidHarrisJr.com, “The Democrat mission has been to get rid of Trump, and if the Mueller report didn’t do that, then Nadler is hell-bent on continuing the phony cloud the Democrats have cast over President Trump all the way to 2020.”
“It may very well come to a formal impeachment inquiry, we will see,” Nadler added.
This is about as psychologically unbalanced as the time Barack Obama said he was proud that his administration was scandal-free. There have been four separate investigations into Trump-Russia collusion. Obama’s FBI did a nine-month investigation and came up with nothing. The House and a bipartisan Senate investigation also came up with nothing. Now, the Mueller investigation came up with nothing. For Nadler to continue on with investigating Russia-Trump collusion, an ethics violation should be filed against him, because with the results of all four prior investigations showing there’s nothing to the accusations, Nadler has no legislative purpose for what he’s doing. Oversight doesn’t mean the Congress gets to act like the FBI. There has to be a legislative purpose for oversight, and there is none.
Nadler made these comments more than a week after special counsel Robert Mueller held a presser at the DOJ, and after Mueller clarified statements made at the presser that contradicted what Mueller said to Attorney General Bill Barr and other witnesses about Trump and possible charges of obstruction, of which there was no evidence.
During the press briefing, Mueller said that he was not interested in sharing his testimony in front of Nadler’s committee.
“I hope and expect this to be the only time I will speak to you on this matter,” the special counsel told the media on Wednesday. “No one has told me whether I can or should testify or speak further about this matter.”
“There has been discussion about an appearance before Congress,” Mueller stated. “Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our findings and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself.”
