Rep Jerry Nadler attacked Attorney General Bill Barr, claiming that he had used federal officers to get footage for Trump campaign videos.
Riots In Portland Are A “Myth”
Barr had spoken at the Judiciary Committee hearings earlier today, decrying the recent violent riots disguised as protests that have taken place all across the country. Barr at one point slammed the media for labelling them as peaceful, when the exact opposite was the case.
Of course, it’s not just the media. Representative Jerry Nadler has also been lying to the American people about the state of the protests. He labelled documented violence in Portland a “myth,” and continued to spout this false narrative when he attacked Barr.
Nadler: “The President Wants Footage For His Campaign Ads”
“You really can’t hide behind legal fictions this time Mr Barr. It’s all out in the open, where the people can see what you’re doing for themselves,” Nadler attacked Barr, claiming that “the President wants footage for his campaign ads, and you appear to be serving it up to him as ordered.”
Nadler, in complete ignorance of the fact, argued that “in most of these cities, the protests had begun to wind down before you marched in and confronted the protestors,” adding that “the protestors aren’t mobs. They are mothers, and veterans, and mayors.”
They are violent mobs Mr Nadler, but I know you don’t want the American people to know that.
“Shame On You!”
“In this moment, real leadership would entail de-escalation, collaboration, and looking for ways to peaceably resolve our differences,” Nadler said. “Instead you use pepper spray and truncheons on American citizens.”

Of course, this collaboration would involve defunding the police, and destroying all statues of white men.
Nadler said that Barr was “projecting fear and violence nationwide, in pursuit of obvious political objectives,” when the federal government is just trying to stop the violence.
“Shame on you Mr Barr. Shame on you,” Nadler concluded.
When Barr tried to respond, Nadler informed him that his time had expired.

It seems that when you think Nadler couldn’t sink any lower, he does!
