Nadler, Schiff Have No Standing to Whine of 'political Revenge'

Reps. Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff — two of the leading voices behind Russia collusion, Russia obstruction of justice, Ukraine quid pro quo, impeach, impeach, impeach! — have turned coattails away from the Games of Politics they oh-so-normally love to play to tweet disparagingly about, get this, President Donald Trump’s use of his White House platform for political revenge.
How delicious it is when the wicked are trapped within their own traps.
Here’s what House Judiciary Chairman Nadler said on Twitter, in reference to the Department of Justice’s decision to look at the key players who kicked off the whole Russia collusion nonsense through criminal eyes: “If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the [p]resident with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.”
Wow. That’s a pot meet kettle moment, if ever there was one.
Isn’t Nadler the same guy who said just this past September that “personally, I think the president ought to be impeached” — without offering any evidence of impeachable offense? Yes, yes, indeed he was. And in that case: Where was his concern for “the rule of law” then?
Nadler, on his Twitter feed, also wrote this: “These reports [of DOJ’s criminal investigation] raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under AG Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge.”
Nadler made it clear his tweets were joint statements with Schiff. Which is another hoot, given Schiff’s oversight of secret hearings in the Intelligence Committee he chairs.
Honestly, calling out Barr and this Justice Department for political shenanigans brings a laugh list of hypocrisies. The previous administration practically perfected the art of political revenge. Can you say Eric Holder?
“The Department of Justice secretly obtained phone records for reporters and editors who work for the Associated Press news agency, including records for the home phones and cell phones of individual journalists,” Wired wrote, back in March of 2013.
