BREAKING: Jerry Nadler REMOVAL Decision – ‘YOU’RE FIRED’

Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) has introducted a resolution to remove Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) from the chairmanship of the House Judiciary Committee, saying he acted unlawfully by starting impeachment proceedings without a vote by the entire House.

“By law, [Nadler] may not launch impeachment proceedings until the full House votes for him to do so,” Gooden said. “This attempted coup against a duly elected, sitting president is unprecedented and must be stopped. I urge the Majority to move immediately to have him stripped of his chairmanship and that any accomplices on the Judiciary Committee not be considered as a replacement.”

“The Judiciary Committee must receive authorization to begin impeachment proceedings, yet the full House denied him this authorization in July by overwhelmingly rejecting House Resolution 498,” a press release read. “Despite this, Chairman Nadler has said publicly he is ‘impeaching the president — right now,’ and has clearly initiated the impeachment process, in direct violation of the law.”

It wasn’t clear whether Gooden’s resolution has support from other Republicans. It is largely a symbolic gesture because Democrats have the majority in the House.

But at least it gets the facts on the record.
