Jerry Nadler is back within the news for more incompetence and failed leadership. he’s beginning publicly saying that he may attempt to impeach Attorney General Bill Barr.
Nadler thinks Barr is favoring Trump’s friends and associates but the record doesn’t fit Nadler’s narrative.
“And what did the judge ultimately do?” DOJ spokeswoman Kerry Kupec asked about the fees Barr interfered with Roger Stone’s sentence.
“This judge cut in half the advice of these original prosecutors, which was completely according to what the attorney general recommended, so there was vindication there.”
“It’s really as simple as that—but certainly—in the interest of fairness and even-handed justice and one system of justice, the attorney general did the proper thing—whether it’s for Mr. Stone or the other cases that are brought before him.”
“It is ridiculous on its face” there was anything involved.
From Fox News:
Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec on Thursday hit back at House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s threat to potentially seek impeachment against Attorney General Bill Barr, slamming the suggestion as simply a “political thing.”
Nadler, D-N.Y., suggested in the week that his committee “may very well” initiate impeachment proceedings, amid his panel’s broad investigation into the alleged “unprecedented politicization” of the Department of Justice under the Trump administration.
But Kupec, during an interview on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning, cast his threat as a “political thing.”
“If people have a drag with Bill Barr returning to the Department of Justice to revive one system of justice, not a two-tiered system, i feel that says tons more about the critics than it does about the attorney general,” Kupec said. “Because that’s what he has done again and again.”
“He approaches all cases with an open mind. He judges them consistent with the facts and therefore the law without reference to political consideration,” Kupec continued. “This is what he promised to at his confirmation, this is often what he has done throughout his tenure as attorney general, which is what he will still do until his Judgment Day as AG.”
Kupec confirmed Thursday that Barr accepted a call for participation to testify before Nadler’s committee next month, on July 28, after Nadler threatened to subpoena him and compel his testimony.
On Wednesday, Nadler held a hearing featuring two Department of Justice officials who criticized Barr’s leadership. Following the hearing, Nadler suggested impeachment was an option.
“I think the load of the evidence and of what’s happened results in that conclusion,” Nadler told CNN.
