Democrat Congressman Jerry Nadler Starts Round 2 Of Impeachment And Dares Trump
The House Judiciary Committee announced on Tuesday that it will hold its inaugural impeachment hearing next week.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said that the hearing on December fourth called the “constitutional grounds for presidential impeachment” is to feature legal “experts” weighing on purported evidence that President Trump committed an impeachable offense.

In a whistleblower complaint alleged to be filed by Eric Ciaramella, a partisan CIA officer, mischaracterized a conversation between President Trump and the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Eric Ciaramella has falsely claimed President Trump was going to withhold funding from Ukraine unless they investigated former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
Unfortunately for Democrats, the release of the transcript of the phone proved that the complaint was unfounded.

Nadler’s announcement comes after the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff held a series of hearings that didn’t go public until House Republicans pressure left them no choice.
During last week’s public hearings, several witnesses testified that they believe no “quid pro quo” happened, except for US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland. However, in a back and forth exchange with Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), Sondland conceded nobody told him the president sought to tie the aid to an investigation into the Bidens.
With the announcement of the hearings, Rep. Nadler has also dared President Trump to testify and “participate” in the hearing.
I think these hearings are set up to be the most entertaining ones to date. Schiff is a really stuck up guy but stays disciplined in his process. Don’t get me wrong Schiff is a liar but he follows his plan for his lies. Nadler, on the other hand, is a nut and in the “investigation probes” he launched against the President earlier in the year, he lost control of his hearings.
Grab the popcorn folks this one is going to be good.
