‘You Can’t Do It Quietly’: Top Democrat Overheard Discussing Kavanaugh Impeachment Plans
Daily Caller ^ | November 7, 2018 | Peter Hasson

Posted on 11/08/2018 4:20:36 PM PST by Morgana

The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee was overheard Wednesday discussing Democrats’ plans to investigate and try to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler took a series of phone calls while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, D.C., not knowing that the The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was also on the train and within earshot.

Nadler is set to take over as judiciary chairman as a result of Democrats flipping the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

Nadler claimed in one call that “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury,” claiming the justice misled about when he first heard about the second of several unproven allegations against him.

Nadler claimed 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 appeared to confuse The Atlantic with The New Yorker, which first reported the second allegation.

The congressman’s claim echoed a misleading NBC News article that left out crucial context about Kavanaugh’s answer — one of several Kavanaugh stories that NBC got wrong.

“That’s not technical, that’s real,” Nadler reportedly said, when his interlocutor objected to his plan.

“The worst-case scenario — or best case depending on your point of view — you prove he committed perjury, about a terrible subject and the Judicial Conference recommends you impeach him. So the president appoints someone just as bad,” Nadler added.

Nadler rejected the caller’s suggestion that Democrats investigate Kavanaugh quietly.

“You can’t do it quietly because word will get out that the FBI or the committee is reaching out to witnesses,” he said.

Nadler also assailed the FBI’s background investigation probing the allegations against Kavanaugh.

“They didn’t even do a half-ass job,” Nadler said. “They didn’t interview 30 witnesses who said, ‘Interview me! I’ve got a lot to say!'” the congressman added.

An extensive investigation by the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee found “no evidence” to support the Kavanaugh accusations.

Nadler’s communications director Daniel Schwarz claimed Hemingway’s story was “an absolutely false and deliberately inaccurate report,” in an emailed statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Schwarz did not return a follow-up inquiry asking him to point to specific quotations or passages in Hemingway’s report that he thought were inaccurate.

A whiff of desperation is in the air. I’m loving this. Go ahead, Nadler, you has-been failed coup plotter from the Bush-Gore days. You failed then, you’ll fail now.

Bella Pelosi & Pals surely have no expectations of the Senate voting to remove.So their goal(s) is/are to convince Justice Kavanaugh to resign,in order to avoid further embarrassment and/or to embarrass the President.

The day you take my vote and make it null and void... while you are wanting to bring in non citizens.. you will start a civil war.. an urising like you have not witnessed..

There are so many out here who are law abiding citizens.. live their lives in regards to law and order.. raising a family, working, paying their bills.. and YOU consider these folks, below standard... you think you have the right... you take the right.. to make their vote void... while you, with all your corrupt minds/lives... believe you have the right to take over my country.. just because you want to.

Let’s see what happens if you try!!

I don’t even look at Dem politicians as humans any longer. They are just hosts for the demonic.

These are death nails they are putting into their own coffins. Every senator that voted DOWN on Kavanaugh got beat in the election ... you would think they would consider this one a “third rail issue.”

As soon as they launch their investigation, the Democrats will immediately call for Judge Kavanaugh to recuse himself from any cases being heard by the Supreme Court. They will argue that he should not be making rulings on any cases “while he’s under investigation for perjury.” They know they will never succeed with impeachment, but they hope to keep him on the sidelines for as long as possible.

“The day you take my vote and make it null and void... while you are wanting to bring in non citizens.. you will start a civil war.. “

We can debate whether that day came when Ted Kennedy got the Immigration and Nationality act of 1965 passed or whether it didn’t arrive until Barack Obama started interfering with border enforcement.

One thing’s for sure is that it’s already been a while.

*The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was also on the train and within earshot.*

At this point it would be inadmissible as ‘hearsay’.

Subpoena the cursed NSA for recordings on Nadler’s cell phone!

Hopefully, he then will only have a “cell” phone that he will be forced to share with his psychotic mass murdering Trump supporting cellmate...

Rock on, ttyl

Guess they haven’t heard two women admitted lying. Ford needs to be investigated so we can put this to rest.
