No one wants the entire Mueller Report in all its fake glory released more than Rep. Nadler. The problem is that a video has surfaced that attests to the hypocrisy of Nadler on the release of the report.
In this 1998 Charlie Rose interview Nadler says the exact opposite of what he’s saying today (transcript below).
He’s calling for the full Mueller Report to be released but in 1998 he said the opposite about Bill Clinton’s report:
Transcript of what Nadler said about releasing the Starr Report on Bill Clinton:
“Well, we were just…the House was just reassembling today. We haven’t been in session for a month, so people were just arriving.”
“I just got here in mid-afternoon, after having a series of meetings in New York. But we did get the report, which is now in the hands of the sergeant-at-arms under armed guard.”
“It’s 36 boxes. We’re told it’s two copies, so it means 18 boxes per copy. There is, I gather, a 400- or 500-page report and the balance is appendices and supporting materials.”
“Now, Mr. Starr in his transmittal letter to the speaker and the minority leader made it clear that much of this material is Federal Rule 6(e) material, that is material that by law, unless contravened by a vote of the House, must be kept secret.”
“It’s grand jury material. It represents statements which may or may not be true by various witnesses, salacious material, all kinds of material that it would be unfair to release.”
“So, I assume what’s going to have to happen before anything else happens is that somebody…the staff of the Judiciary Committee, perhaps the chairman and ranking minority member…is going to have to go over this material, at least the 400 or 500 pages in the report to determine what is fit for release and what is, as a matter of decency and protecting people’s privacy rights, people who may be totally innocent third parties, what must not be released at all.”
