NY Post Editorial Board Blasts Jerry Nadler


The New York Post’s editorial board blasted House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Friday for turning the House Judiciary Committee into “a circus.”

The New York Post, Nadler’s hometown paper, attacked the Democrat for holding a “mock hearing, complete with an empty chair for Attorney General William Barr” on Thursday.

“New York’s Rep. Jerry Nadler is finally enjoying his moment in the spotlight — by turning the committee into a circus,” the New York Post’s editorial board wrote. “Playing to the TV cameras, one committee Democrat placed a fake chicken on the chair — and, for good measure, brought a bucket of fried chicken.”

“The reason Barr refused to show is that Nadler demanded that he face questioning from staff lawyers. The AG was perfectly right to object: There’s no precedent for non-members quizzing a Cabinet official in a public Judiciary hearing,” the Post’s editorial board continued.

“Nadler knew full well Barr would refuse to play the patsy in what would’ve been a mock trial. As the committee’s top Republican, Doug Collins said, the only reason Barr wasn’t there is that ‘Democrats decided they didn’t want him here,’ the editorial read. “If anyone’s showing contempt for our ‘very system of government,’ it’s Jerry Nadler and his crew.”
