Nadler took a very different stance on contempt back in 2012

Democrat House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler led the charge Wednesday to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for not handing over the unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe — declaring the move necessary as the country enters a “constitutional crisis.”

But Nadler had a very different stance on contempt back in 2012 when House Republicans took the same step against then-Attorney General Eric Holder for refusing to hand over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. Here’s Nadler’s Tweet from 2012:

I guess, when it comes to a ‘Constitutional Crisis’, Representative Nadler only cares when a Republican is in the Oval Office. The most ironic twist about the contempt vote this week is that Nadler and his fellow Congressmen are to see the whole Mueller Report at the DOJ. He just wants the show.

Paris Procopis
If Paris is in a room filled with people, you will usually see him front and center talking and laughing with everyone. His effervescent, outgoing personality brings a refreshing change to the sometimes hostile political world. He takes advantage of his private sector relationship management and comedy improv experience to easily engage any size audience, from individuals to thousands. He has always had a passion for all things political and the world around us, and brings a unique and sometimes humorous, perspective. He has been involved in everything from working on individual campaigns to organizing large political rally's. While Paris is a solid Conservative, he takes the time to understand opposing viewpoints. He lives by the mantra, ‘Do not try to change the minds of others as someone else will easily change it back. Just simply state the facts and they may change their own mind, if that happens, you may have an ally for life.’

Fragile Egos, and the Surprising Challenge to a SUCCESSFUL Republican County Chairman

We shouldn't be voting Terry Dittrich out, he should be reelected and his SUCCESSFUL efforts need to be duplicated throughout the state. Heck, with the fact that Democrats have been owning local offices for decades, I'd say this needs to be duplicated nationwide. I cannot think of any reason to replace a rare workhorse like Terry Dittrich at this juncture. The numbers matter and they are heavily in his favor. Sadly, I fear there is something more sinister, and frankly petty, at play here.
