HYPOCRISY ALERT: Nadler Briefs Dark Money Dem Group, Despite Calling Such Groups ‘A Cancer’

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) provided a private briefing on investigations into President Trump to the Democracy Alliance, a liberal dark money group, this week despite having publicly bashed such groups in the past.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported on Thursday that Nadler would be giving a “private briefing on investigations into President Donald Trump,” to “the Democracy Alliance, a group of millionaire and billionaire funders of the liberal movement” this week at their annual spring meeting in Austin, Texas.

According to the Free Beacon:

“Nadler will join the donors via live video to lead a discussion titled, “After the Mueller Report: What’s Next?”

“Given the events of the last few days, we added a special discussion, After the Mueller Report: What’s Next?” says a flyer distributed with programming updates for the donor retreat.”

This private briefing by Nadler to some of the largest donors at their secretive dark money retreat contradicts Nadler’s past public comments lambasting such organizations.

In a press release from 2012, Nadler said, “unlimited secret money threatens the integrity of our democracy and we need to put a stop to it.”

“The overwhelming influence of money and special interests is a cancer in our democracy that needs to be removed,” Nadler said of dark money groups earlier this year.
