Things got heated today in a House Judiciary Committee hearing with Matt Gaetz shutting down Jerry Nadler over election security.
Nadler, as usual, took a few cheap shots at Trump and tried to bring the hearing around to impeachment again.
It should be noted that Jerry has done such a terrible job so far with his hearings that Pelosi took the unprecedented step and benched him and gave Adam Schiff the lead on Trump’s impeachment.
This is usually reserved for the Judiciary Committee but anyone who saw Nadler sleepwalk through his job knows he is not up to the task.
Opening a House Judiciary Committee hearing on election security, panel Chairman Jerrold Nadler took aim at Trump’s request that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy investigate Democrat Joe Biden.
The revelations are shaping up as an even more serious threat to Trump’s presidency than the special counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“President Trump has refused to acknowledge Russia’s attack, let alone publicly denounce it or outline clearly how he intends to deter future interventions,” Nadler said.
“Now we have evidence that the president of the United States asked a foreign leader to interfere in our next election.”
Representative Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican and ally of the president, said he worried that attempts to impeach Trump represent a bigger threat to democracy than election interference.
“I fear that the greatest risk to our democracy may not be hackers or interference with the vote, it may be the efforts by radical Democrats to try impeach a president who was duly elected,” Gaetz said.
