On Tuesday, Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) released the Democrat Party hit list of 81 individuals the House Judiciary Committee planned to interview, in hopes of finding something, anything, they can use as a basis to impeach President Trump.
Now that the fake Trump-Russian collusion narrative has completely fallen apart, the Democrat Party is forced to move on to their next political stunt.
Conservative Jim Hanson exposes how Rep. Jerry Nadler is making a mockery of our government, in a video he shared on Twitter. The video shows Nadler appearing on CNN with host Erin Burnett. During their interview, Nadler is forced to admit that they have no proof of any wrongdoing on the part of President Trump, but they hope that after interviewing half of America, they will.

In a tweet on the day before the hit list was released, Republican Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio, slammed the Democrat congressman, Jerry Nadler, telling him to “at least pretend to be serious about fact finding” in his quest to impeach President Trump. Rep. Jordan called Nadler’s call to issue “documents to over 60 different people” including President Trump’s children the equivalent of a “Kangaroo court.”
C’mon @RepJerryNadler—at least pretend to be serious about fact finding.
Nadler feeling the heat big time. Jumps to Tom $teyer’s conclusion—impeaching our President—before first document request.
What a Kangaroo court. https://t.co/BpNIzdON1e

Now, it appears as though Rep. Nadler (D-NY) may have found himself in a bit of a potential Russian collusion scandal himself…
According to Breitbart News – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has hired a campaign consultant who also lobbies on behalf of the head of a Russia propaganda outlet, even as he launches an extensive investigation into President Trump’s alleged Russia ties, according to a report.
The Daily Beast on Thursday reported that Nadler’s campaign consultant is Ezra Friedlander, a lobbyist and political consultant who runs outreach to the Orthodox Jewish community for Nadler’s campaign.
However, he is also a public-relations executive whose newest client is the wife of Kirill Vyshinsky, the head of Russian state news media outlet RIA Novosti’s Ukrainian arm.
That means Nadler has his own questionable ties to Russians, as well as that his campaign is paying a consultant that is doing lobbying work for a Russian propagandist.
According to Sputnik News, the head of the RIA Novosti Ukraine news portal Kirill Vyshinsky, who has been held in custody in Ukraine since May 15 on charges of treason, said on Friday he had been practicing journalism but not propaganda.
“We have never been practicing propaganda, we have been practicing journalism. This is easy to check by looking at our materials published over more than four years when I was in charge of the [portal],” Vyshinsky told the RT broadcaster in his written response to journalists.
The journalist stressed that it was difficult to imagine that the work of about 10 journalists could “threaten the sovereignty of a country that has a 40-million population.” He also noted that there had been no serious complaint about the news portal’s work.
On May 15, the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) broke into the office of the RIA Novosti Ukraine in Kiev. Vyshinsky was detained on charges of treason that same day. The SBU accuses him of supporting the self-proclaimed people’s republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in Ukraine’s southeast. On May 17, a court in the Ukrainian city of Kherson ruled to arrest Vyshinsky.
Ukrainian authorities have accused Vyshinsky of illegally fomenting support for the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014 — which the U.S. strenuously opposed.
According to documents filed with the Justice Department, Vyshinsky’s wife Irina hired Friedlander’s firm in November 2018 to attempt to secure her husband’s release.
Friedlander said that neither RIA Novosti or any other independent entity is paying him for that work, according to the Daily Beast.
Friedlander frame his work for Vyshinsky as protecting a journalist — even though he works for Russian state media.
Will the media pursue Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler’s ties to the Russian propagandist with the same level of enthusiasm they’ve maintained for two years over the phony Trump-Russian collusion fairytale? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
