House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler got heckled at a news conference while trying to downplay the significance of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report vindicating President Donald Trump.
While speaking to the media on Sunday in New York City, the top Democrat was brutally heckled by one man who called him and Democrat a “bunch of losers” and “dirtbags.”
“The President could try to exercise executive privilege, but it won’t be successful,” Nadler began.
“Executive privilege must be asserted by the president personally…” Nadler continued before the man began shouting at him.
“Nadler, you guys are a bunch of losers!” a man shouted, breaking Nadler’s train of thought because he was distracted.
“Um,” Nadler attempted to continue while staring towards the man.
When Nadler tried to continue, the man shouted, “You guys lose again, once again, Nadler,” triggering a look of disgust from the congressman.
“Good job, dirtbags, good job,” the man shouted.
Nadler was clearly caught off guard and didn’t know how to handle the man, who was certainly shouting things that most Americans agree with and support.
I just love this😂😂😂

Nadler getting ruthlessly heckled came just days after Mueller submitted his final report to the Department of Justice.
There are no further indictments and the two-year long Russia investigation is officially over.
On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr provided Congress with a 4-page document outlining the main takeaways from Mueller’s report.
Barr said that Mueller’s report makes it clear there he found no collusion or evidence that Trump ever committed a crime.
“The report does not recommend any further indictments, nor did the Special Counsel obtain any sealed indictments that have yet to be made public.,” Barr wrote.
Here’s the most important paragraph:
The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As the report states: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Barr also wrote in his letter that Mueller left it up to the Department of Justice to determine whether charges could be brought against the president for obstruction of justice.
“The Special Counsel’s decision to describe the facts of his obstruction investigation without reaching any legal conclusions leaves it to the Attorney General to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime,” Barr’s letter states.
Barr wrote that the DOJ will not be bringing any charges against Trump for alleged obstruction.
So, Trump has been completely cleared in the Russia probe and there are no charges being brought against him for collusion or obstructing justice.
But just like the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are refusing to accept the outcome of Mueller’s probe.
