Scalise Uses Democrats Own Past Remarks in Calling out ‘Hypocrisy’ of Trump’s Impeachment

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) is using congressional Democrats’ own words against them in regards to impeachment.

House Democrats formally announced they’d be launching an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump on Tuesday evening — after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tried to wrangle in her Democratic colleagues on Trump’s impeachment prior.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) was looking into impeachment against the president before Pelosi’s announcement.

“Their hypocrisy is unbelievable,” Scalise wrote on Twitter, along with a video revealing what several top Democrats have had to say about impeachment in the past.

Listing what some Democrats have previously said, the Republican lawmaker noted that they previously suggested that “impeachment supporters are driven by hatred.”

In contrast, Scalise called some of the Democratic congressmembers for their recent comments, claiming they’re “filled with hatred of [Donald Trump].”

The video shows Pelosi previously claiming that the House Republicans are “paralyzed with hatred” of former President Bill Clinton. She added that the U.S. would continue to “suffer” until Republicans “free themselves of this hatred.”

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is heard also suggesting Republican lawmakers are “driven by hatred.”

“No impeachment should proceed without bipartisan support,” Nadler is heard saying, adding, “Impeachment of a president is an undoing of a national election. … [Republicans] are telling us that our votes don’t count.”

Watch the video below:

“Democrats’ hatred of President Trump blinds them to the facts of the case, and they cannot be trusted to tell the truth as they continue to pursue their impeachment-at-all-costs strategy,” Scalise wrote in a press release, continuing to blast Democrats for their impeachment push.

PS: I don’t think that’s what Craig (below) was doing, insulting Nadler as a defense of Trump. Rather it was just a comment on Nadler. Perhaps it was a bit subtle would “Nad-less” been better, more obvious?

I had forgotten how fat Jerry Nadler was but then came global warming and it all melted off.

Every time a Democrat accuses someone of something, the Democrat is the one guilty. More of the DEMOCRAT INQUISITION.

They love to dig up past events and comments of others but when faced with their own, throw fits. I, for one, would like to know how Nader lost all that weight and on whose dime.

He’s right and if the Democrats knew any better, which they obviously don’t, this wouldn’t be tried unless it was a sure thing.

How do you know when you have the left running scared. Check the major threads of conservatives. Full of troll comments EVERY SINGLE TIME. New accounts or accounts dormant for years all the sudden come out. People, they aren’t real.
