House Democrats Plotting to Delegitimize 2020 if Trump’s Impeachment Fails
Jerry Nadler contested that Trump's re-election may not be
House Judiciary Committee chairman, Jerry Nadler, is seemingly laying the groundwork to undermine the legitimacy of President Donald Trump's re-election in 2020.
Nadler contested that Trump's re-election may not be "fair" in an interview with NBC host Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press."
The Democrat said if the House votes to impeach Trump, but the Republican-controlled Senate acquits him, resulting in Trump not being removed from office, it wouldn't be a fair election.
"Let me ask you this. If he's acquitted, do you believe we'll have a fair election in 2020?" Todd asked.
"I don't know. The president, based on his past performance, will do everything he can to make it not a fair election," Nadler said.
"And that is part of what gives us the urgency to proceed with this impeachment," Nadler responded.
Nadler responded to a number of softball questions during the lengthy interview.
Todd failed to argue with Nadler when he claimed 70 percent of Americans "understand the president has done something very wrong."
The claim is not backed up by a single legitimate poll.
Nadler also claimed that there is "an abundance of uncontested evidence" against the president, which is also false.

Democrats claim there are massive amounts of evidence against Trump proving wrongdoing, but all the evidence is contested by those who support the president.
Nadler again suggested in an interview Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," that the patriotic choice for lawmakers is to back impeachment.
"I don't know if [Trump will] be acquitted. The senators are going to have to decide," Nadler said.
"The House members, first, are going to have to decide, and then the senators are going to have to decide... Are they going to be patriots? Or are they going to be partisans?" Nadler said.
Last week, a key witness was called into the impeachment inquiry, Jonathan Turley, testified that the current legal case for impeaching Trump is “woefully inadequate” and “dangerous."
“One can oppose President Trump’s policies or actions but still conclude that the current legal case for impeachment is not just woefully inadequate, but in some respects, dangerous, as the basis for the impeachment of an American president,” Turley wrote.
“The reference to the Hunter Biden deal with Burisma should never have occurred and is worthy of the criticism of President Trump that it has unleashed."
Nadler, last week, announced the hearing would determine whether the president’s actions reach a level of “high crimes and misdemeanors” and warrant articles of impeachment.
