Dem Impeachment Managers Said THIS About Clinton's Impeachment

 

 

The Democrats have been trying to take a shot at Trump for a long time and now that they have gone in for the kill they may have spoiled any chance at getting the White House this year. The Democrats woes don’t end with a failing set of Presidential candidates and previous scandals coming to light every other day, the Democrat's efforts to impeach the President have almost totally collapsed.

 

With Adam Schiff going on insane tangents that seemingly referencing plot points from video games and Jerry Nadler taking napalm to bridges where moderate Republicans might have sided with them. If the Impeachment effort has not collapsed yet it will after a little history on the impeachment managers and their past comments on impeachment are brought to light. The Daily Caller did some digging and found some of their old speeches and statements on the matter.   

 

Here are some of the comments about Bill Clinton's Impeachment made by these Democrats that they are probably regretting now:

 

Adam Schiff

 

According to The Daily Caller:

“The district simply has not been a priority for [Rogan]. He has been more engaged in national partisan ideological crusades than in issues important to the district,” Schiff told the Los Angeles Times in January 2000. “I think voters want to get away from the strong partisanship we’ve seen in Congress and elect someone with a good record of working in a bipartisan way to find solutions.”

 

In May of 2000 Schiff was lunging at Republican James Rogan for his role in the impeachment of Bill Clinton, Schiff at the time was running for Rogan’s seat. It's ironic how Schiff rallied against impeachment when he wanted to win an election but now that is lashing out at the results of an election through the impeachment process. 

 

   Jerry Nadler 

 

According to The Daily Caller:

“There must never be a narrowly-voted impeachment or an impeachment substantially supported by one of our major political parties and largely opposed by the other… Such an impeachment would lack legitimacy, would produce divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come and will call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions,” Nadler said in 1998 during the Clinton impeachment proceedings.

 

 

Nadler has always been at odds with the President but from what he said during the impeachment of Bill Clinton you would think that he would be the bigger man and look to help unify the nation. Nadler is clearly looking to win political games at this point, the unity of the nation is no longer a concern of his.  

 

 

Zoe Lofgren 

 

According to The Daily Caller:

 

Like her fellow impeachment managers, Lofgren opposed Clinton’s impeachment, and even argued against the public release of evidence uncovered in the special counsel investigation into Clinton.

 

“When we got [Ken] Starr’s Referral, I believed that, at a minimum, we should have read what it said, and discussed it, before we released it to the nation,” she wrote in 1998. “Instead, we released the Referral and this was followed in fast succession by thousands of pages of additional material that the nation need not have seen. We justified this wholesale release by insisting that the people had a right to know, presumably so they could be persuaded by the facts and constitutional standard as to what was the right course to follow.”

 

Lofgren is the only impeachment manager who saw all three modern impeachments(Nixon, Clinton, and Trump). This puts her in a very special position where we get to look over her consistency over the years and looks like things have changed in the heart of Representative Lofgren.

King:---  This time, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're in this room by mistake.  But not next time.
