Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) is set to run the next stage of the impeachment inquiry in the House Judiciary Committee.

Nadler recently extended an offer to Trump to testify or have his attorney attend the hearings, an invitation which he is now setting a deadline to respond.

Trump Would Love to Testify

President Trump had the media drooling when he said he would love the opportunity to testify before the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment inquiry hearings.

When Rep. Nadler heard this, he jumped at the opportunity to extend an invitation to Trump… with restrictions.

Trump, however, will be at a NATO conference during the first days of the hearings, but his attorney could still attend on his behalf, per Nadler.

Trump was sent a letter by Nadler, stating, “In anticipation of consideration of these matters, I am writing to determine if your counsel will seek to exercise the specific privileges set forth in the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment procedures adopted pursuant to H. Res. 660 and participate in the upcoming impeachment proceedings.

“In particular, please provide the committee with notice of whether your counsel intends to participate, specifying which of the privileges your counsel seeks to exercise, no later than 5 p.m. on December 6, 2019.”

Trump and/or his attorney can attend and ask as many questions as they want IF they do not block any House subpoenas.

And therein lies the rub.

That being the case, it is unlikely Trump will attend or have his attorney attend simply because it would be giving Democrats carte blanche during the hearing.

Reports Looming

In addition to the House Judiciary hearings, there are numerous reports about to hit that are going to be the focus of news reports in upcoming days.

When Congress returns to session this week, the House Intelligence Committee is expected to finalize its report and release it.

We can expect a scathing report that will recommend the impeachment of Trump.

In addition to that, the Inspector General report is due out by December 9, which will tell a different story.

That report is expected to be a precursor to a criminal indictment of at least one FBI official.

It will be very interesting to see how the Dems and media spin that report, as they will most likely try to belittle it and paint the Justice Department as Trump’s personal hit squad.

  1. Nadler is almost as bad as Schiff-for-brains. I am surprised either of them has the brain capacity to breathe unassisted.

  2. The President has no obligation to either accept or reject an offer from the House Judiciary Committee. If the Democrats are going to formulate Articles of Impeachment, then do it!!!! The President has already stated that he welcomes an Impeachment Trial in the United States Senate. In fact, he’s stated that he’s looking forward to it. My response to Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is: “Take your best shot!”

    • slim did NOT make an ‘offer’ – as the article stated it was far more in the form of an ultimatum. The President is no more obligated to comply with such a veiled threat than you or I would be. Well unless it comes from the IRS of course 😉

  3. Trump should tell Nadler: no thanks. Not withstanding the lack of evidence, democrats ARE going to impeach him because they hate him. That is what impeachment means to democrats. Don’t play their game Mr. president. Let the people decide in 2020

  4. Hey Nadler, here is an ultimatum. Give the USA the ultimate Thanksgiving/ Christmas gift, and get out of politics while the getting is good. That would be a great service to our nation. Rumored, you are under investigation and it does not look good.

    • Pete – if slim ain’t under investigation he is probably the ONLY dem that isn’t…………………………
      The thing missing from your “ultimatum” to him is what the consequences will be if he doesn’t comply, which is what is also missing from his ‘challenge’ to DJT – what is he going to do if DJT doen’t comply? Impeach him?

  5. Is this the best the Demoncrats have ?? NO-NECK Nadler and PENCIL-NECK Schiff, and Pelosi running the House. A lying and conniving trio if there ever was one, they are going nowhere!!! TRUMP 2020 !!!!

  6. Nadler the Babbler is an unmitigated ass and should be, along with the other dumb-o-craps, cleaning toilets with their tongues.

  7. I wouldn’t say anything because God said ‘Vengeance’ is mine’, says the Lord.
    EPH.6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
    Matthew 10:26
    “So do not be afraid of them,
    for there is nothing concealed that
    will not be disclosed, or hidden that will
    not be made known.
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

  8. I hope all of these slandering, threatening, lying sleazy democrats and their fellow trash are arrested and tried as the criminal traitors to this country they are.
