(TeaParty.org) – If you were an elected official, would you discuss sensitive plans for highly-controversial subjecs on a public train ride where anyone could overhear?
Probably not, but apparently Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler had no qualms in doing so, and now his train-ride-turned-strategy-meeting has come public, thanks to some observant eavesdroppers.
Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist wrote about Nadler’s overhead plans, which are to impeach Justice Kavanaugh for “perjury.”
The New York representative also plans to continue to beat the dead horse that is the Trump-Russia investigation.
“In post-election chats with various callers while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, Nadler gave advice to a newly elected representative and discussed potential 2020 Democratic presidential nominees with another. He also lamented identity politics and the thriving economy and worried about Democrats losing working-class voters while gaining elite former Republicans and suburban women,” Hemingway reports.
Nadler was reportedly heading to Washington for a two-day planning session.
“We’ve got to figure out what we’re doing,” he explained during his public conversation.
In the conversation, he discussed “two routes for investigating new Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. The first is to go after the FBI for how they handled the investigation into unsubstantiated claims he sexually assaulted women. ‘They didn’t even do a half-a– job,’ he said. ‘They didn’t interview 30 witnesses who said ‘Interview me! I’ve got a lot to say!” he said, while mimicking people waving their hands to be called on.”
His other route is to claim perjury.
“He claimed that The Atlantic published an article about the allegations of a third woman. Then he claimed that when Kavanaugh was ‘asked at a committee hearing under oath’ when he first heard of the subject, he said, ‘When I’d heard of the Atlantic article.’ But there is an email chain apparently dating from well before that from him about ‘How can we deal with this?” Nadler told the caller.”
Hemingway explains that Nadler seems to have gotten mixed up about Kavanaugh, as he is describing another claim that Kavanaugh lied which has since been debunked, that the judge “perjured himself when he denied hearing of the New Yorker’s disputed allegation involving Deborah Ramirez until the story came out.”
“Considering that the New Yorker included a denial from Kavanaugh in its own controversial story, and was asking him about it right before publication, and he acknowledged all that in his Senate testimony, it’s unclear how fruitful such a perjury claim would be,” Hemingway explains.
Nadler admitted that the plan wasn’t perfect, considering Kavanaugh could be replaced with “someone just as bad.” He is, nonetheless, clearly determined, explaining that the battle to remove Kavanaugh would have to be public.
“You can’t do it quietly because word will get out that the FBI or the committee is reaching out to witnesses,” he explained to the caller.
Nadler also revealed how much stock he still has in the Russia investigations and Special Councel Mueller.
As the Daily Caller reports, “Nadler’s communications director Daniel Schwarz claimed Hemingway’s story was ‘an absolutely false and deliberately inaccurate report,’ in an emailed statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation.”
The DCNF also pointed out that Schwarz did not reply to a follow-up request to explain which parts of Hemingway’s report were indeed false, however.
Rush Limbaugh explained that he believes it was Nadler’s intention to be heard.
“Have you ever been on a plane or a train and somebody thinks they’re really hot stuff and they start being very, very loud about who they’re talking to? That’s supposed to impress you — or what they’re saying? That’s supposed to impress you. Who they are is supposed to impress you. That’s what he was doing. We all are irritated by people like that. These are basically insecure people who want to be stars, want to be thought of as recognizable stars. So he’s out there, he’s making it plain as day who he is, and he’s not trying to hide anything. He wants to be overheard.”
