    I hope the stress of his failure causes Nadler to eat himself to death.

    This dude is sick, I mean just look at him. I call him "The Ring Master" because he leads the circus and the clowns that surround him. Apparently he thinks people are listening to him. Amazing what ego can do to people and how delusional they become! So pathetic!!!

    Have the Democrats done anything, promoted any bills unrelated to Trump or proposed anything to benefit regular people this term?

    What it means Nadler, is you're playing games and abusing power! It also means We The People will take Democrats out of power 2020. Attempting to overthrow The Peoples vote by trying to impeach our duly elected President plus DNC's involvement in the attempted Coup de'tat is an Act Of Treason for which we will seek justice!!!

      Nadler is acting like a tyrant because he has hated Trump for decades. He needs to be recused.

    "Penguin Wadler" Jerry Nadler is playing his part for the Democratic crime syndicate. He is still demanding the same thing & expecting a different response from Barr. How dumb does he think Barr & the American public is? Does anyone get it yet? "Keep them busy so they don't come after us for TREASON." This really exposes the corruptness, futility & low intel INSANITY of the LEFT.

    Trump may be the most corrupt President ever, but he's not going to be talked out of office. And that's all the Democrats seem to be offering. A Republican Party without morals and a Democratic Party without balls.

      Mueller looked at Trump's taxes and found nothing. Manafort went down for Bank Fraud and Taxes. 40 FBI agents including forensic accountants have just looked at Trumps bank and tax records and found nothing.. over 2 years. Nadler is a fraud.

    Dem’s Talk is cheap. The Dems should actually ‘do’ something other than shuffle papers in committee.
    Mueller should man-up and go call his own press conference. Justice needs him to come forward. Or are his hands clean now that the report is off his desk? He did his job; he’s outta here? Is Mueller just a lawyer after-all, or is he a Marine?

    The Trump administration is a criminal organization who refuses to comply with congressional oversight investigations of his criminal behavior, (obstruction of justice et-al)..
    Trump thinks e is the King of the United States of America, when in reality he is a paid public servant, (as long as we don't allow him to become our King)

    Aside from 29 years of fecklessness in Congress, Jerry Nadler is the paragon example of a self-hating Jew. Nadler belongs in a nursing home with $enile Pelosi, Maxine the Wig, Diane Fein$tein, Creepy Joe the 'Fondler'... and Bernie Sanders, a multi-millionaire communist that wants to make the United States like Venezuela.

      Boy you are really buy this aren't you. Watch Mark Levin's and Victor Davis Hanson's analysis
      on this. Nadler is really in the wrong and will be shot down in a legal battle. Trump did ultimately
      let the investigation go to conclusion, cooperated in handing over a million documents , anyone
      that Mueller wanted to interview Trump did not stop from testifying Barr released all of the
      Mueller report that could be legally be released. It was sitting at the DOJ for review yet no
      DEM has reviewed it until it was read aloud. The Trump team did everything by the book,
      it is Nadler that is asking for document they have no right to review and they are asking
      Barr to hand over documents that are illegal and Barr will not break the law
