    Congress’ patience with the Department of Justice is running thin, as they’re dragging their feet in releasing troves of documents relating to the Russia investigation and Hillary Clinton On the latter, the DOJ has appointed a special lawyer to oversee the release of some 3,600 pages of new documents, which has irked some congressional Republicans (via Politico): The Justice Department has appointed a U.S. attorney to oversee the release of documents related to the FBI’s 2016 investigation of Hillary Clinton amid Republican complaints — including from President Donald Trump — that the DOJ is slow-walking their release.Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah...

    A top House Democrat is challenging the core conclusion of the memo released by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Friday, calling the allegation that the Justice Department and FBI withheld key details as they sought a secret surveillance warrant on former Trump adviser Carter Page deliberately misleading and deeply wrong on the law.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Democratic lawmakers slammed President Trump after he approved the release of a memo questioning surveillance methods by the FBI during the early stages of the Russia investigation, arguing that he gave up his constitutional responsibility by releasing it.President Trump has surrendered his constitutional responsibility as commander in chief by releasing highly classified and distorted intelligence, Pelosi said. By not protecting intelligence sources and methods, he just sent his friend Putin a bouquet.

    Representative Nadler is a shrewd lawyer but he has spent his life in legislatures rather than courtrooms. Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has written a six-page response to the FISA-abuse memo published Friday by the committees Republican staffers under the direction of Chairman Devin Nunes (R., Calif.). I wont get sidetracked by the fact that Nadlers Dear Democratic Colleague letter has been exclusively obtained by NBC News i.e., that it was leaked to the media, whereas the so-called Nunes memo was provided to committee Democrats before publication so they could...

    Letter and Tweet at link. Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are calling for an immediate meeting with officials from the FBI and Department of Justice over the claims made in the memo drafted by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). The letter, spearheaded by ranking member Rep. Jerrod Nadler (D-N.Y.), is directed to committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). In it, Nadler asks Goodlatte to arrange a meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray and other representatives from the Justice Department to examine the "talking points" that he says Republicans are using to "discredit the work of the FBI and Special Counsel...

    Republicans on key congressional committees say they have uncovered new irregularities and contradictions inside the FBI's probe of Hillary Clinton's email server. For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken when the former secretary of State and her top aides transmitted classified information through her insecure private email server, lawmakers and investigators told The Hill. That evidence includes passages in FBI documents stating the "sheer volume" of classified information that flowed through Clinton's insecure emails was proof of criminality as well as an admission of...

    Selection of Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) as the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee was the clearest sign yet of how seriously House Democrats consider the possibility of a full-blown constitutional showdown with Trump. Nadler anchored his candidacy for his new position, vacated with the resignation of Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), on the 13 years he has spent as chairman or ranking Democrat on the panels Constitution subcommittee and, more recently, its courts subcommittee. He also politely reminded Democrats in recent days of his efforts, beginning in the mid-1980s, to impede Trumps efforts to develop portions of New Yorks...

    The Democratic Party, on Wednesday, voted overwhelmingly for Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to replace resigned Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) on the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler, a constitutional law expert, won the spot over Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), an architect of immigration legislation, by secret ballot with 118 to 72 votes. The Washington Post noted on Thursday that the decision to fill their top spot on the committee demonstrates the Democratic Partys willingness [t]o ready themselves for a battle with Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings. Should the Democrats regain control of the House during next years mid-term elections, they...

    Two of the Confederate Armys best-known leaders have streets named for them in a place not normally associated with the Southern side of the Civil War New York City. Now some elected officials are trying to undo it. They say its high time Stonewall Jackson Drive and General Lee Avenue in Brooklyn are renamed, pushing to join a number of Southern cities that have removed or are considering taking down Confederate statues and other memorials in public places. To honor these men who believed in the ideology of white supremacy and fought to maintain the institution of slavery constitutes...

    Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said Monday that President Trump was wrong to issue an executive order temporarily banning immigrants from Muslim-majority countries because American citizens are the real terrorism threat in the U.S. "The real threat here so far is home-grown, American terrorists, and not people from these seven countries," Nadler said on CNN. Trump on Friday issued an order suspending immigration from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. The 90-day ban is meant to give federal agencies time to review the information they need to verify the identity of immigrants seeking to enter the United States. It...

Jerrod Nadler (D., N.Y.) told CNNs Aliysn Camerota on Tuesday that the alleged quid pro quo conversation between the State Department and FBI regarding the classification of one of Hillary Clintons private emails may mean that the conduct of those involved should be looked at. Now, does this mean that maybe the conduct of one of the people involved in the FBI or in the State Department should be looked at? Nadler asked....

    WASHINGTON The Republican-led House voted convincingly Wednesday to approve a $602 billion defense policy bill after rejecting attempts by Democrats to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and to repeal the war powers President Barack Obama relies on to fight the Islamic State (ISIS). ADVERTISEMENT The legislation, which authorizes military spending for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, seeks to halt a decline in the combat readiness of the U.S. armed forces by purchasing more weapons and prohibiting further cuts in troop levels. But in a 17-page statement on the policy bill, the White House detailed its...

    A Democratic congressman offered a curious analogy on Monday to explain why the U.S. is dealing with the Taliban -- apparently comparing them to soldiers in the American Revolution. According to sources, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., made the comparison during a House briefing late Monday with administration officials on the trade of Taliban members for American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Nadler apparently made the point that the Taliban, as non-state actors, have a status similar to that of American soldiers who fought the British during the Revolutionary War. This comparison, Fox News is told, was met with a lot of groaning...

    Facing growing skepticism on Capitol Hill about its decision to swap five Taliban prisoners for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the White House told lawmakers at a classified briefing late Monday night that some of the freed militants were political figures, not hardened soldiers, according to lawmakers who attended the session. In the past several days, the administration has rolled out a number of reasons to justify swapping Bergdahl, a potential deserter, for the five Taliban officials. White House officials said they had concerns about Berdgahl's health, felt an obligation to never leave a soldier on the battlefield, and feared the militants...

    The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed this week that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed "simply based on an analyst deciding that." If the NSA wants "to listen to the phone," an analyst's decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. "I was rather startled," said Nadler, an attorney who serves on the House...

Nadler has said: Hunters dont use large ammunition clips, and as far as self- defense, I mean who are you defending yourself against? If youre defending yourself against a robber two or three or four shots should be enoughperiod. Its a safe bet Nadler has never faced an assailant fueled by adrenalin drugs and alcohol. That doesnt matter, of course, since no one will ever challenge Nadler on his supposed knowledge of the danger presented by...

    (CNSNews.com) Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said only the federal government should have high-capacity gun magazines and that the state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence. At a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday, Nadler gathered with other House Democrats to push for stricter gun control in the wake of last weeks massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., which left 26 dead, including 20 children. The lawmaker told CNSNews.com that he not only supports prohibiting the future sale of 10-round gun magazines, but he would like to confiscate high-capacity clips already legally possessed by American...

    Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) is clearly an example of a purported Jew who has learned nothing from history, specifically the history of people who were disarmed by their governments. This includes not only Germanys Jews (disarmed in 1938, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Germany#The_1938_German_Weapons_Act), but also the victims of the Holodomor (1932) and the Armenian victims of Turkish genocide in 1915. Historian R.J. Rummel introduced the term democide to describe the murder of populations by their own governments. Nadler said recently that only governments should have the power of life and death over others, which is roughly what Reichsfhrer Heinrich Himmler said in the 1930s:...

    In one of the worst school shootings in American history, over two dozen were left dead at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school earlier today. And, although many facts have yet to emerge, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called for the public to learn from yet another senseless and horrific act of violence involving guns, and for the government to act in response. We as a society must unify and once and for all crack down on the guns that have cost the lives of far too many innocent Americans, Mr. Cuomo said in a statement. Let this terrible tragedy finally...
