Nadler Denies That the American People Are Over the Russian Probe: ‘The Country Has Not Moved On’

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) denied that the country moved on from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.

During an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” Nadler — the chairman of the Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee — was pressed by host Chris Wallace on whether or not he believed the nation had “moved on” from the lengthy Russia investigation.

Wallace also showed data from a Wall Street Journal poll that said 50 percent of Americans believed that Congress should not hold any more hearings and that President Donald Trump should finish out his first term.

Nadler responded by claiming that “the country has not moved on” from the investigation and that Trump and Attorney General William Barr have “lied to the American people.”

“No, the country has not moved on. I mean, the president and the attorney general have lied to the American people about what was in the Mueller report. About the fact that you just heard the president saying they found no collusion, that was not true. That it found no obstruction, that is not true. And they’ve had months of that: lying to the American people.”

Nadler continued on to say that he believes once “people hear what was in the Mueller report,” it would be easier for Congress to make the case against Trump.

The House Judiciary chairman then claimed that the Trump administration was “lawless” and that the president himself has been “lawless” by telling people to defy congressional subpoenas.

“And the fact of the matter is, the president has been lawless in telling all witnesses not to obey congressional subpoenas, not to testify at all, and that is beyond the pale of the Constitution,” said Nadler.

Nadler’s comments come as Mueller himself gears up to testify in front of both the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees regarding the investigation he headed.

Did he answer any questions about Comey, Lynch, Podesta, HRC and the email evidence, any DNC issues? No? Let’s have a look…. Then we’ll be conclude whom it was colluding with Russians.

This Mr. Nadler must be living in LaLa land to think that we give a flip about Russia and collusion, get over it, move on, get to work on something better than wasting taxpayers money! Just simply because you and demoncrats cannot impeach this president, well you will make this country completely miserable until he leaves office!

Wrong. The Democratic party has not moved on. They still think they are going to overturn the election of 2016.

Numb Nadler is a disgrace who seems to live in a realm of his own like the Bizarros from the old Superman comics.
“Night is Day. The Sun is the Moon. The Earth is the Sky and I are smart.”
Go away sourpuss and scare your grandchildren with stories of the evil-ogre Trumpinator because most of us are sick of looking at or especially hearing from you.
