Hypocrisy Alert: Nadler Doesn’t Think Trump Should Be Briefed on Mueller Report Before Congress

In 1998, Nadler thought that then-President Bill Clinton had the right to see Ken Starr’s 445-page report before Congress did.

House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) called it disturbing that President Trump might be briefed about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report before Congress sees the entire document on Wednesday.

“Certainly, the White House should not be briefed before Congress sees the entire document. It indicates that the attorney general sees the president as his client, not the country as his client,” Nadler told CNN’s Manu Raju on Wednesday.

But in 1998, Nadler thought that then-President Bill Clinton had the right to see Ken Starr’s 445-page report about Clinton’s sex scandal before Congress did.

“What is at issue here this morning is not his conduct but the fairness of the resolution before us, which is manifestly and grossly unfair,” Nadler said. “It is manifestly unfair because it denies the president the privilege we have given to every other person accused, as the gentleman from Michigan stated, the ability to see the accusation before it is released publicly so he can prepare a response.”
