Another Bozo the Clown wannabe, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), is parading around with impeachment noose in hand, angling for his moment in the media spotlight.
Voters got a respite from the impeachment mongers, thanks to the Thanksgiving holiday. Consumers spent a staggering $4.2 billion online, a 14.5 percent increase from last year and a record high, according to new figures published by Adobe Analytics on Friday. This marks the first time that Thanksgiving shopping has surpassed $4 billion.
While everyone was busy shopping on Black Friday, feasting on Thanksgiving Day leftovers and choosing gifts for loved ones, along came the Democrats once again. They were tapping at our windows with their noses pressed up against the glass asking, “Wouldn’t you like to have an impeachment for Christmas?” They just don’t get the message.
The president was busy pardoning turkeys and visiting our often overlooked troops fighting for freedom in Afghanistan. Life had almost returned to a sense of normalcy until Nadler piped up.
He sent a letter to Trump on Friday notifying him that he has one week to inform the House Judiciary Committee of plans his attorneys may have to participate in impeachment proceedings beginning next month.
“I am to determine if your counsel will seek to exercise the specific privileges set forth in the Judiciary Committee’s Impeachment Procedures adopted pursuant to H.Res.660 and participate in the upcoming impeachment proceedings. In particular, please provide the Committee with notice of whether your counsel intends to participate, specifying which of the privileges your counsel seeks to exercise, no later than 5:00 pm on December 6, 2019,” Nadler wrote.
This was Nadler’s second letter, a follow-up to one that had originally given Trump until Sunday to respond. The Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing is set for Dec. 4.
Trump is expected to be busy with important presidential duties on behalf of the American people. He is scheduled to travel to London next week to meet with other world leaders at a NATO summit.
Nadler also sent a letter on Friday to Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA), notifying him that he has until Dec. 6 to “seek my concurrence” to issue any subpoenas or interrogatories during impeachment proceedings.
Democrats “may learn to hate their little impeachment toy which they just unwrapped,” said Fox News Contributor Deroy Murdock on Friday’s edition of Hannity.
“Among other things the timing is horrible. We’re now just finishing up Thanksgiving. We’ve got Christmas coming and hearings on impeachment. The articles of impeachment, if they are written, and the debate on impeachment, all that stuff will be going on while Americans are trimming trees, going shopping, enjoying egg nog, going to Christmas parties, getting ready to light Hanukkah candles. The whole country is uniting at home doing all these warm, loving things and the Democrats are going to be on TV dividing the country,” said Murdock.
A hostile crowd greeted U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ) on Monday at a town hall in Whippany, New Jersey, according to a Politico story.
“We sent you to Washington,” a woman began, “to get work done, for us and for our country, and it appears that for the last couple of years all that has been going on is investigations.” Sitting in the front, I could almost feel people’s shoulders tense up. Everybody knew what was coming. The towheaded scouts had filed to the back. The adults had the floor now. And impeachment was in the air. “We honestly,” the woman continued, “can’t trust Adam Schiff …” Politico’s Michael Kruse reported.
South Dakota resident Sheila Graff wrote a letter to the editor of Aberdeen News on Saturday complaining, “I am tired of this impeachment business. What have they got done? Nothing. We should not have a two-party government, this is just child’s play, he-said/she-said, blah, blah, blah!”
House Democrats are becoming a drag on the body politic with their obsessive need to target and destroy the president like juvenile video gamers. They have worn out their welcome with voters on impeachment but are fixated on completing their quixotic mission.
‘Tis the season for togetherness, celebration and family, not political one-upmanship and vengeance.
