Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin ripped the House Democrats, in particular House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., for disregarding the rules of the impeachment process and proceeding to investigate President Trump without the consent of the full chamber.

“Now the way an impeachment proceeding is supposed to work, ladies and gentlemen, and keep this in mind, is that impeachment is so serious that it’s supposed to involve the broader body politic. The House of Representatives in toto, not a committee of the House of Representatives conducting a so-called impeachment inquiry, impeachment investigation, impeachment probe — they’ve used all these words,” Levin said. “It’s one committee that voted today, by a simple majority. All Democrats yes, all Republicans no. The way it’s supposed to work is there is a formal vote for impeachment proceedings — not the impeachment of the president, but proceedings — authorizing the House Judiciary Committee … to conduct its investigation. That did not happen. So the very people who claim to care about the Constitution could care less about tradition, precedent, and process.”

Levin added that in addition to being a taxpayer-funded Democrat campaign strategy, it’s also an intimidation tactic.

“This is the Democrat Party that has hijacked the House of Representatives, perverted the impeachment process, and is using your taxpayer dollars to burden the president, to undermine his administration, and to advance their political agenda — that’s all it is,” Levin said.

Listen:

“This is a kangaroo phony court, that’s what it is! These are politicians. Some of them are the most left-wing kooks that you could imagine. They don’t represent the American people. That’s why this is a farce, a sham. That’s why you don’t just do this in a committee setting.”
