Nadler: If Trump Is Acquitted, I Do Not Know If 2020 Will Be A Fair Election

(Breitbart) – On Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said if President Donald Trump was acquitted in an impeachment Senate trial, he does not know if the 2020 presidential election will be a fair election.

Host Chuck Todd asked, “Let me ask this, if he is acquitted, do you think we’ll have a fair election in 2020?”

Nadler said, “I don’t know. The president, based on his past performs performance will do everything he can to make it not a fair election, and that is part of what gives us urgency to proceed with this impeachment.”

Flashback: Jerry Nadler In 1998 Accused Republicans Of Running A ‘Lynch Mob’ Against Bill Clinton

Democrats are expressing outrage over President Trump’s comparison of the ongoing impeachment inquiry to “lynching,” but a top House Democrat — House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) — made that same comparison himself in 1998 during Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

According to an October 4, 1998, Associated Press article that touted Nadler’s role as a top Clinton defender, the then-51 year-old congressman said:

I am the president’s defender in the sense that I haven’t seen anything yet that would rise, in my opinion, to the level of impeachable offense…

I wish we could get this over with quickly. … In pushing the process, in pushing the arguments of fairness and due process the Republicans so far have been running a lynch mob.

Despite this, House Democrats have rushed to condemn Trump’s comparison of impeachment to lynching and demanded an apology.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said Tuesday, “The president should not compare a constitutionally mandated impeachment inquiry to such a dangerous and dark chapter of American history. It’s irresponsible for him to do so and I hope that he will apologize.”

The New York Times’ Twitter account tweeted that Trump was using a term that “invokes the decades-long racist history of white mob murders of black people.”

Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) said Trump comparing the impeachment inquiry to lynching was “beneath the dignity of the office of the President of the United States”:

CNN commentator Keith Boykin tweeted:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has also taken some heat for defending Trump’s comparison:

Nadler also said in 1998 that impeachment “could be the most divisive thing in American politics since the Vietnam War.”

“You get a large segment of the American population saying ‘You’ve staged a coup d’etat, you overthrew the election unfairly.’ The other part of the American people say, ‘No, we didn’t,’” said Nadler.

He also warned Republicans against running a “partisan witchhunt.”

“So far it’s been done very wrong and very unfairly,” he said then.

  1. WOW it appears not more to be stated here. Very good statements/comments.
    Only thing I will add is the democrats RIGGED the last election but and to their surprise lost and it is called a miracle from above. HE gave us President Donald Trump no he is not perfect but yes he loves his country and we the people of it and wants the best for all of us. President Trump is a true American he believes in God and our Constitution, he does marvels I have never seen a President in my lifetime do he has profound energy that seems never to stop, he keeps going even if the end of the tunnel seems dark to us but he for some reason sees the light. He was giving to us to straighten out the evils with in our government and country and there is no other way to explain him but he is a miracle giving to us to see if we Americans will stand beside him or forsake him we have a choice and I for one will stand by my President Trump even if it brings me my death.

  2. Certainly this Article was written by a political Democrat. I did like the Republicam comments in the Article.

    Enemy #1 The Press

    Enemy #2 Democrats

  3. I will tell you what is really bothering Nadler, in 1985, he lost to David Dinkins for Manhattan Bourough Pres., in 1989, he lost the controllers race to Elizabeth Holtzman, minority and feminist, he looked aufull.

  4. THIS KEITH BOYKIN ——IS A JERK. GET THIS STRAIGHT BUSTER I’M THE SAME AGE AS TRUMP AND WE WHERE IN SCHOOL AT THAT TIME AND AS FOR HANGING IT WAS DONE THE LAST PART IN MISSISSIPPI AND THERE IS A MOVIE YOU DAMN WELL NEED TO SEE AND IT WAS CALLED MISSISSIPPI BURNING. GET YOUR DAMN FACTS STRAIT. KENNEDY FOUGHT FOR THE BLACKS TO GO INTO SCHOOLS IN THE 60’S AND I WAS THERE. AND WE HAD NO PROBLEM AND WELCOMED THEM IN . YOU ARE BLOWING THIS WAY OUT OF CHARACTER. AND I NEVER DID LIIKE THE N WORD USED -I’M A XARMY BRAT AND WAS USED TO DIFFERENT COLORS. AND TO USE THAT DISGUSTING PICTURE IS HORRIBLE. AND KNOW THIS YOU IDIOT –IT WASN’T THE REP THAT WERE AGAINST THE BLK IT WAS YOUR OWN DAMN DEMS.! READ HISTORY OF THEM AND FIND THE SO CALLED TRUTH OF YOUR DEMS.

  5. First off, you don’t know much “Turnip Man,” and count on the President walking away from this smelling like a rose. NOW, the country knows that if you and your corrupt cohorts haven’t been Indicted and prosecuted for your past indiscretions which “We the People,” are well aware of…WE KNOW THAT THERE WON’T BE A FAIR ELECTION BECAUSE YOUR SNIVELING SHEEP WILL TRY TO FIX THE ELECTION THE SAME WAY YOU DID FOR “STINKY!” We caught you in 16′, but we are ready for you in 20′ and wit a little luck you’ll be in prison!
    GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE PRESIDENT!

  6. Hey Nadler…..You and the rest of the corrupt and lying DemonRats are complete A…..Holes – more like “spoiled kids”!! POTUS Trump will win 2020 by-a-landslide!! This Impeachment cr*p is all going to back-fire in your faces – BIG time!! MAGA!!

    • Joe Thompson…..That’s what bothers me!! These corrupt “Looney Toons” are never going to give-up!! We (GOP) must take-back the House from these DemonRats!!

  7. Any lynching of blacks was carried out by Democrats through the KKK. During the 50’s George Wallace (Democrat) continued to promote discrimination. The KKK did the dirty work. It was a Republican President who said enough is enough. Democrats (liberals) live in an illusionary world. Any African American who believes the Democrats represent them is in a world of hurt. All the Democrats want is the black vote. Same with illegals and non-believers. Lets not let out academics who know little about reality and brain wash kids on a daily basis. But I will say one thing, Nadler is right when it comes to defining impeachable offenses. Having an intern give you a b–w job in the White House is not an impeachable offense. The current inquisition is dealing with non-impeachable offenses. Going forward precedence is being established and any President will be subject to harassment.

  8. I’m reasonably certain that Nadler’s idea of a “fair” election would result in a clear-cut Democrat victory when the votes of all the convicted felons, dead people, illegal aliens, other noncitizen immigrants, and welfare deadbeats were counted and recorded.

  9. The sooner we get these crazy Democrats out of office, in jail,etc.The better for the American people.They have done nothing for us.They are useless.Vote Republican.

  10. Democrats are in all…..Political Zealots at this point. They will stop at nothing to impeach. Nadler is a hypocrite. Pelosi has aspirations of being the first women President. And Adam is just crazy. Draining the swamp was just the beginning.
    Now Rudy is going to Flush the Toilet.

  11. What else doesn’t Jerry Nadler know? How long a list would you want? He’s just worried that the Republican controlled branches of government would impose a donut tax.

  12. President Trump likening this impeachment farce to a lynching is very accurate as the Democrates would string him up from the highest tree if they thought they could get away with it. this is nothing more that a coup to overthrow the will of the people.

  13. It will be a free election as long as democrats don’t let illegal aliens to vote, but we all know they will resort to voter fraud.

    • Karl Democrats are masters at cheating elections it’s not just illegals they use. Gerrymandering is a favorite .Hacking electronic vote machines . Pay blacks and stupid whites to vote multiple times at different polls , stuffing ballot boxes and generally obscuring any fair election..DEMOCRATS are EVIL !

  14. Ok Jerry halfwit let’s first discuss a fair impeachment hearing then and only then can we move forward with any decisions about an election. This chatter is of fear that the Dems have to platform that will compare to Trump’s agenda.

  15. The President has done nothing wrong but these left wing politicians will continue to accuse him of treason. There is no proof, there is nothing but second and third hand accusations from people that weren’t even there at the time the phone call was made. These are the people who need to be charged with treason for wanting to destroy a duly elected President.

  16. Gawd damnit explain how the election would be unfair !!! It’s not good enough to just proclaim the election would be unfair!

    • They also don’t know that it was Democrats that lynched people, not Republicans. The KKK was Democrats….

  17. Nadler thinks the election isn’t going to be fair? Really?

    If the dems are involved in any way I KNOW that it’ll be rigged. They ALWAYS do something to whatever degree to rig an election.

  18. The Democrats just can not get over it. now they are talking Treason. They won’t win and they are just digging the hole for themselves deeper. I thought intelligent people were elected to run this country, but the Democrats are proving this is not the case, only the greedy ones. I hope this will haunt them for decades and they won’t take power in my life time.

  19. Chuck Todd is one of the most bias announcers I have ever heard. Journalism is or was as I was thought to be um bias but only the facts. In all if his broadcasts about President Trump he has impeached before he start speaking. Why are they not talking about the far left and what there programs are going to cost the tax payer. Maybe if the Democrats get control (I hope it never happens) the left will look back an sya we should have stopped it, unless the Democrats give the rich a free ride as they have so far.

  20. Well golly…now the demon-Dems can publicize the fact that they are planning to rig the election. (They always blame others for what they are doing.)
