(NationalSentinel) Conservative talk host, author, and constitutional expert Mark Levin said during his program Thursday that House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) has “perverted the impeachment process” in his overzealous quest to remove President Donald Trump from office.
In addition, Levin tore into House Democrats in general for pursuing an impeachment trial against the president without any grounds to do so.
“Now the way an impeachment proceeding is supposed to work, ladies and gentlemen, and keep this in mind, is that impeachment is so serious that it’s supposed to involve the broader body politic,” Levin noted.
“The House of Representatives in toto, not a committee of the House of Representatives conducting a so-called impeachment inquiry, impeachment investigation, impeachment probe — they’ve used all these words,” Levin added.
“It’s one committee that voted today, by a simple majority. All Democrats yes, all Republicans no. The way it’s supposed to work is there is a formal vote for impeachment proceedings — not the impeachment of the president, but proceedings — authorizing the House Judiciary Committee … to conduct its investigation. That did not happen. So the very people who claim to care about the Constitution could care less about tradition, precedent, and process.”
In addition to it being a Democratic campaign tactic for 2020 funded by taxpayers, Levin noted that it’s also aimed at intimidating the president.
“This is the Democrat Party that has hijacked the House of Representatives, perverted the impeachment process, and is using your taxpayer dollars to burden the president, to undermine his administration, and to advance their political agenda — that’s all it is,” Levin said.
“This is a kangaroo phony court, that’s what it is! These are politicians. Some of them are the most left-wing kooks that you could imagine. They don’t represent the American people. That’s why this is a farce, a sham. That’s why you don’t just do this in a committee setting.”
