In 1998, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler was making very different comments about impeachment compared to his statements today.

He said impeaching the President of the United States is an undoing of a National Election.

Hypocritically, however, Nadler has actively called to impeach President Donald Trump in recent months.

In a speech from 1998, Nadler speaks about how impeachment would be bad for the U.S.

He says it would be telling Americans that the people’s vote does not count and that the election “must be set aside.”

On September 16, however, he proclaimed that Trump should be impeached in order “to vindicate the Constitution.”

“Impeachment is imperative not because he’s going to be removed from office. The Senate won’t do that…

“But because we have to vindicate the Constitution,” Nadler said in the interview with WNYC.

“We have to show that this kind of behavior — trashing the Constitution, trashing all the norms which guarantee democratic government, aggrandizing power to the presidency and destroying the separation of powers and thereby leading the president to become more and more of a tyrant cannot be tolerated. And it cannot be normalized.”
