Watch: Fireworks Erupt In The House, Republicans Disrupt Hearing After Rep. Nadler Violates Rules

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing yesterday that is investigating allegations that the Trump administration has politicized the Department of Justice. It just so happens that Nadler’s investigation occurred on the same day we saw concrete evidence that the Obama Justice Department set up General Michael Flynn. Unlike Nadler’s Micky Mouse court in the House, we have actual proof the Obama Administration targeted Trump officials.

As with a lot of the investigations being conducted by House Democrats, the chairmen run them in a manner that Joseph Stalin would admire. Nadler allows Democrat witnesses to go over their time limits however when a Republican witness time has expired they get gaveled immediately.

Since Nadler has decided that rules no longer apply during his hearings Rep. Louie Gohmert thought he would make a point.

Former Deputy Attorney General Donal Ayer was testifying – really just monologuing – that Attorney General William Barr posed “the greatest threat…to our rule of law and public trust in it.” Ayer ignored House Rules by continuing to testify for several minutes after his allotted time. So Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) decided to bang on his desk.

“Mr. Chairman, I would ask that the sergeant-at-arms be called upon to stop the disruption of this meeting,” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) said as Rep. Gohmert continued tapping. “I can’t hear this witness. This is a very important witness.”

“Yeah, well he’s way beyond his time,” Gohmert fired back. “And if there are no rules about when people can talk, there are no rules about when you can make noise.”

Nadler conceded Gohmert’s point but, allowed the witness to continue his rant.

“Mr. Chairman this is outrageous. Do you have no respect for the rules whatsoever? asked Gohmert. 

“He’s two minutes beyond concluding, and you don’t let us have that kind of time. You gavel us down immediately,” continued Gohmert. “You’re being grossly unfair. … Either we have rules or we don’t.” 

Nadler told the witness to keep going and Gohmert kept tapping his desk.

“… according to House Rules, a chairman cannot capriciously determine the five-minute rule at the whim of what he wants,” said Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) during a point of order.  

Of course, Nadler refused to recognize the point of order, at which point Collins said the chairman has “not stated a recognizable way of running the committee in 18 months.” 

Ladies and Gentleman, Jerry Nadler…
