Beth Fouhy: In 1998, Jerry Nadler Decried the Partisan Nature and Unfairness of Impeachment

‘Now he is going to be the elder statesman sort of listening to Republicans making that same argument here in this case about President Trump’

RUSH EXCERPT:

FOUHY: “We are going to see this handoff of course between Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler. Jerry Nadler has sort of taken very much a seat to this. Nancy Pelosi seemed to, you know, want to sort of turn power over to Schiff instead to sort of lead the Democrats through the impeachment inquiry initially. So now it moves into that phase. We know we have a whole different set of cast of characters now on the judiciary Committee who are going to be making their mark. Doug Collins is raring to go. And it’s interesting if you look back, David, to his role during the Clinton impeachment in 1998, he was very much sort of the Democrat decrying the unfairness of the process, the partisan nature of the process. Now he is going to be the elder statesman sort of listening to Republicans making that same argument here in this case about President Trump. So, the chairs have sort of flipped around, but much of the discussion is similar.”
