Impeachment ‘based on evidence?’ Mollie Hemingway reminds us Nadler was ‘all-in’ on it after Dems took House

(TNS) Democrats are trying to make the case to the American people that, hey, they never really wanted to impeach President Trump but because of his awful abuses of power regarding Ukraine and stuff, well, he just didn’t leave them any choice.

However…we know that’s not true.

Democrats have been plotting the president’s demise, robbing Americans of a duly-elected commander-in-chief, since the  night he beat the most criminally investigated presidential nominee in the history of the republic, Hillary Clinton.

And certainly, as The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reminded the country in a tweet on Tuesday, since taking over the House last year.

Hemingway tweeted out a column she wrote after the 2018 midterms, which saw the Garbage Party regain control of the people’s House.

Boy, if elections ever had consequences…

“Fun reminder that Jerry Nadler revealed his impeachment plans (for both Kavanaugh and Trump!) in my presence on the Amtrak from NY to DC the morning after Election Day in 2018. For those who think this is about a 2019 phone call w/ Ukraine or something….” she wrote.

From the column:

Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., revealed plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury and investigate and impeach President Donald Trump for alleged treasonous collusion with Russia.

In post-election chats with various callers while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, Nadler gave advice to a newly elected representative and discussed potential 2020 Democratic presidential nominees with another. He also lamented identity politics and the thriving economy and worried about Democrats losing working-class voters while gaining elite former Republicans and suburban women.

Nadler was headed to DC for a two-day planning session with his staff and Judiciary Committee staff. “We’ve got to figure out what we’re doing,” he explained in a phone call with a friend. Nadler requested that the friend’s name be concealed on the grounds he is a private citizen.

The two discussed two routes for investigating new Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. The first is to go after the FBI for how they handled the investigation into unsubstantiated claims he sexually assaulted women. “They didn’t even do a half-ass job,” he said. “They didn’t interview 30 witnesses who said ‘Interview me! I’ve got a lot to say!’” he said, while mimicking people waving their hands to be called on.

His other plan is to go after Kavanaugh because “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury.” He claimed that The Atlantic published an article about the allegations of a third woman. Then he claimed that when Kavanaugh was “asked at a committee hearing under oath when he first heard of the subject, he said, ‘When I’d heard of the Atlantic article.’ But there is an email chain apparently dating from well before that from him about ‘How can we deal with this?’” Nadler told the caller.

Nadler was apparently discussing a slightly different claim, since debunked, which is that Kavanaugh perjured himself when he denied hearing of The New Yorker’s disputed allegation involving Deborah Ramirez until the story came out.

Nadler said Russia investigations would be under a broad umbrella of holding Trump “accountable,” since it’s a more palatable argument than impeachment, that they would be going “all-in,” and much of what they get to would be “depending on what [special counsel Robert] Mueller finds.” Still, he said the Judiciary Committee would only be in a supportive role to Rep. Adam Schiff and the Intelligence Committee, which has “a way ahead start on that.” Still, he said Judiciary “will have a role” in the Russia investigations.

Well, Mueller’s ‘finding’ that there was no “Trump-Russia collusion” (because it was a fabrication from the outset) put a damper in that angle of attack.

I’ve come to the conclusion that those things on Jerry Nadler’s forehead are not eyebrows, but frontal lobotomy scars cleverly touched up with eyebrow pencil. There is nothing behind them except for the other side of the scar. Nothing. As for Nancy, A friend sent this joke recently (I hope it’s okay to post it): “Dr. Timothy McCarthy, while receiving a medical award for creativity, reported his findings to the Fellows of Plastic Surgery, concluding with this case study: “Several years ago a woman was high on cocaine and marijuana and she rode a horse head-on into a train traveling… Read more »
