    House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler -- one of the impeachment managers prosecuting President Donald Trump -- believes perjury and obstruction of justice need not be impeachable offenses.


    Or that is what Nadler claimed in 1998, when he was a dissenting minority member on a Judiciary Committee that approved four articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton.

    Clinton -- like Nadler -- was a Democrat.

    The full House voted to approve two of the four articles against Clinton -- with five Democrats voting for each of the approved articles.

    "The Committee concluded that on or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought against him to execute a sworn affidavit in that proceeding that he knew to be perjurious, false and misleading."

    Nadler said he did not believe the committee had proven these charges -- but that, even if true, they were not impeachable.

    "The conduct alleged -- even if proven -- does not rise to the level of an impeachable offense," he said in the committee's Dec. 10, 1998 hearing.

    "We should not dignify these articles of impeachment by sending them to the full House," he said. "To do so would be an affront to the Constitution and would consign this committee to the condemnation of history for generations to come."

    Nadler further argued that a partisan impeachment vote must never happen.


    Has Nadler Consigned Himself 'To The Condemnation Of History'?

    BJ - Yes, but to other Democrats - that's a plus.

    I'm sure the left handed liars will find a way to claim "that was different" when referring to Nadler's opinion when defending
    President Pervert Clinton.

    Well, ya got to pick a pocket or two. A movie was made about Charles Dickens' novel, "Oliver Twist." By some sheer coincidence, they called it "Oliver." And "ya got to pick a pocket or two" became VERY acceptable to the Hollyweird scene ever thereafter as the movie "It Takes a Thief" celebrated the idea, too, that it's okay to steal whatever you want, whenever you want, and that you can escape the consequences of your bad behavior if you make a good enough appearance in court. :rolleyes:

    It's called "American Justice." Chas Dickens said so along with his hateful comments about the country he despised in writing, the United States of America and people he considered inferior to himself.
    :9:<<<<Dickinson's attitude toward America, kinda like Nancy Pewlosersee

    Dickens loved America but when touring the nation later was appalled by slavery in the South and the habit of spitting tobacco
    juice in public and both things are indeed disgusting. Dickens and America: A love-hate relationship

    It's worth noting though that it was dear old England that established the practice of slavery on this continent and they set up the trade in human beings here themselves.

    The Dutch Sea Captains also made a tidy profit by friending African chieftains by taking their fellow blacks off their hands who gave their authority a little hassle. The ones who survived have DNA that forces them to seek something for nothing, just like back when. Best example: Maxine Waters, "Get mean with Republicans, wherever you find them. Stalk them in restaurants when they go to lunch. Humiliate them in every whicha-way you can so they will quit their jobs to hurt Donald Trump whom we mutually hate because he won the Presidential bid for President. Now, how can we get even if that doesn't work. IMPEACH!!! IMPEACH!!!! IMPEACH!!!!!"

    I pity people like Nadler, Schiff, Pelosi and Schumer who try to rule the world for their own selfish and greedy reasons.

    This is when that fat fuck was more worried about eating the world than ruling it.
