If the House flips, Representative Jerry Nadler would head the committee that could try to oust the president. But hell have to be convinced first.
BROOKLYNRight now, I dont want to talk about it, Jerry Nadler told his curious, concerned constituent. We dont want to talk about it.
The man positioned to lead the House of Representatives impeachment effort against President Donald Trump next year was holding court on a suffocating early August afternoon outside a Walgreens in the Brooklyn half of his New York City congressional district. This was a Congress on Your Corner event, and the 71-year-old Nadlerdressed sensibly for the heat in a light-blue button-up shirt without the suit jacketwas answering questions from a gaggle of local residents on whatever topics happened to be on their mind.
It was Robin Bady, a 67-year-old neighborhood resident, who asked about impeachment: What were the chances, she wondered, that it could happen if Democrats won back the House majority this fall?
Its a question likely on the minds of millions of Americans at the moment, and more than just about anyone else in the country, Nadler is the person to ask. After a quarter century in Congress, the liberal stalwart is now the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committeethe panel that would consider articles of impeachmentand if a blue wave does crest in November, he would become its chairman.
Nadler wasnt dismissing Badys questionthe fast-talking New Yorker will offer his two cents on pretty much any subject. But he was sharing the not-so-secret political strategy of the Democratic Party during the midterm campaign: Impeachment, though it looms over both Congress and the presidency, is a topic for others to discuss.
It doesnt serve the function of a Democratic House to talk about it, Nadler said....

Here are Marxist RATs in action. I do believe they’re gonna be stopped real soon. Comments anyone?
If there’s ever another Dem President he/she better be on their best behavior and squeaky clean ,LOL
It encourages Trump supporters to vote this election.
Evne the Rats aren’t stupid enough to give her chairmanship of any committee.
We will be good little sheep. By then if any of us even speak in opposition, we will be put in the slammer.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters serves as Ranking Member of the Financial Services Committee.
Congresswoman Waters also serves as member of the Steering and Policy Committee, making her an integral part of the House Democratic Leadership led by Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer and Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn.
Additionally, Congresswoman Waters is an influential member of several Congressional caucuses and task forces:
Congressional Black Caucus, former Chairwoman
Congressional Progressive Caucus, co-founder
Congressional Task Force on Alzheimers Disease, co-chair
Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission
Congressional Diabetes Caucus
Might sound admirable to some, but what he means is he believes such talk will frighten prospective Dem voters.
It is naïve to think the Dems will abandon their effort to defeat Trump. That may be the only way a great many of their principal players stay out of jail. If they take both chambers they only need to coerce, compromise or buy off a handful of Rino's.
Operative words could and try... Good luck with that, dimocraps.
It’s apparent that a few weeks ago the notion of impeaching president Trump tested very poorly in some Democrat focus groups. If I looked back over the headlines I could probably pinpoint to within two days when this happened. Suddenly no Democrat who was running for office would say anything about impeachment.
If heaven forbid these commies take power the first thing they do will be to impeach our president. They just know not to admit it for now.
We'll show 'em how Sedition is done right...
If the American people are stupid enough (or if enough Hispanic and Black voters turn out) to flip Congress, then Articles of Impeachment will be introduced and passed within weeks.
No-Nads looked clear perjury in the face, and voted "Nyet"...
Tens of millions of Deplorables do.
We're talking the baby Harp seal cure, the hemp cure and the guillotine cure.
That’s going to win friends and influence people. /s
They won’t be doing much impeachin’ after they get involuntarily enrolled in the Nouveau Spandau Ballet...
I take it back. Apparently they are stupid enough.
Exactly. Translation: “We all know we will impeach him. But don’t say the ‘I’ word or even bring it up until we capture the House and Senate. Then we will do it.”
All of the Democrats in the House will be for impeachment though some may deny it now.
