Rep. Jerry Nadler ripped final argument away from Schiff, thinks Shifty did a terrible job. They are fighting big time!

Dems ask for a closing statement on the night. Nadler, clearly fed up, jumps to his feet and scurries to the mic, ignoring audible protests of lead manager Schiff. Then Nadler gives a terrible lecturing close.

"Jerry. Jerry. Jerry," Schiff is heard saying as he took a few steps towards Nadler, but failed to stop him from speaking.

Nadler is seen getting up from his seat and making his way to the microphone to give the closing statement, appearing to catch Schiff off guard. 
Members of the president's legal team and Senate staff visible on camera can be seen smiling as the scene unfolded.
Spokespeople for Schiff and Nadler did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Nadler used the final remarks to reiterate the need for witnesses and dismiss Trump's defense as a series of distractions meant to divert attention from the question of whether the president abused his power in pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rivals.
"The House managers have proved that question beyond any doubt," he said.
Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, led the House impeachment inquiry before it moved to a full vote, and he has served as the lead House manager throughout the trial, doing the bulk of the speaking in laying out the case against the president. 
Schiff delivered closing remarks during each of the three days of opening arguments for the House managers, making it even more surprising that Nadler would have the final word on Thursday.
Nadler's performance during the trial has irked Republican senators at times, with a few expressing indignation at his suggestion last week that the Senate would be complicit in a cover-up if they do not call witnesses.
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said late Thursday he would not vote in favor of subpoenaing witnesses and additional documents, making it increasingly likely the trial will move to an acquittal vote later Friday.


  1. Kayla Gowdy: Dems' 10 biggest lies in Trump's Senate impeachment trial

    Americans know the Democrats’ plan to impeach President Trump did not begin in September 2019. Rather, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., admitted herself, it has been going on for over two and a half years.

    Unable to wrap their head around the idea that 60 million Americans disagreed with the socialist agenda propagated by the Democratic Party, Rep Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Rep Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and many others began their plan to impeach President Trump the moment he was elected.

    This entire impeachment sham has been a predetermined narrative full of lies and false accusations designed to divide America and harm President Trump.

    It’s time to correct the record on Congressional Democrats’ ten most egregious impeachment lies.

    Lie: This impeachment process began after an anonymous whistleblower filed a complaint through the proper channels within the Office of the Inspector General.

    Fact: An article published on Oct 2, 2019, by the New York Times proved Schiff received an early account of the whistleblower’s complaint despite his persistent denial. This gave Democrats time to come up with an impeachment plan before any information was released to the public.

    Lie: Democrats began the impeachment hearings out of concern for the country and the Constitution.

    Fact: Time and time again Democrats have gone on the record proving their motivations for impeachment to be political.

    Rep. Al Green, D-Texas: "I'm concerned if we don't impeach this President, he will get reelected.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes, D-N.Y.: “[Impeaching Trump] is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome [in 2020].”

    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.: “The president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box.”

    Lie: President Trump during a phone call with Ukranian President Zelensky asked for a personal favor.

    Fact: Despite consistent false statements from Democratic Congressmen and members of the media, the released transcript of the call proved President Trump said, “I want you to do us a favor.” The “us” refers to America, not his political campaign.

    Lie: President Trump’s unprecedented withholding of aid endangered the United States and Ukraine.

    Fact: Not only did Ukraine receive its aid on time and in its entirety, but President Trump actually resumed granting foreign aid after President Obama ended the practice.

    Lie: President Zelensky felt pressure from President Trump to investigate the Bidens.

    Fact: President Zelensky addressed the issue with the American press, stating the call was “normal” and “nobody pushed” him to do anything for the aid.

    Lie: House impeachment witnesses are first-hand evidence of a quid pro quo.

    Fact: Of the impeachment witnesses brought by House Democrats, Gordon Sondland was the only one who spoke directly with President Trump regarding aid to Ukraine. He was clear the president told him, “I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo.”

    Lie: The whistleblower is non-partisan and can be completely trusted.

    Fact: The Intelligence Inspector General found the whistleblower has “arguable political bias” against Trump and was not a primary source to the conversation, giving him no credible knowledge of the situation.

    Lie: There was an urgent need for impeachment.

    Fact: After saying for months that impeaching President Trump was an urgent matter, Pelosi refused to send the articles to the Senate, unnecessarily delaying the trial.

    It’s clear Democrats have one goal with the impeachment proceedings: denying Americans their Constitutionally elected president by overturning the results of the 2016 election. It’s a disgrace just how low they are willing to go to belittle President Trump and his supporters. Their deliberate lies must be exposed.
