GOP Rep. Ratcliffe: Nadler ‘Trying to Appease’ Dem Base that Wants Trump Impeached

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) sounded off on House Democrats’ “impeachment garbage” as they continue to hold hearings and subpoena Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn.

Ratcliffe ripped House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for the ongoing impeachment talk, saying he is just “trying to appease” the Democratic base that wants President Donald Trump impeached.

“The key evidence that Jerry Nadler talked about yesterday is the same evidence that the Department of Justice has been offering to Democrats for some time now,” Ratcliffe outlined. “Again, this was about Jerry Nadler trying to save face in the face of a Democratic base that wants him to take action. Those documents, again, have been available to all of us for some period of time. I’m glad that Jerry Nadler is happy and he’s finally submitted to the accommodation process the way it’s supposed to work, but he overplayed his hand on the subpoenas against Bill Barr and now he’s looking for an off-ramp and he got one yesterday.”

He later added Democrats will continue holding hearings to keep the Russia collusion conspiracy in the public view.
