Many conservatives believe the Democrats intend to impeach Donald Trump in 2019.

In fact, they just laid down a marker as their first step towards making that a reality.

And this Democrat was handpicked to lead the charge in removing Donald Trump from office.

Democrats just held a secret ballot election to choose the next ranking member of the Judiciary Committee.

Should the Democrats win control of the House, the ranking member will ascend to the position of chairman.

The Judiciary Committee is where articles of impeachment will originate, so the chairman will manage the process of beginning to remove Trump from office.

Democrats selected Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for this position.

Supposedly Nadler is a constitutional scholar, but that is hard to believe considering he is a far-left Democrat.

The Washington Post reported on his selection:

“Yet Nadler anchored his candidacy for his new position, vacated with the resignation of Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), on the 13 years he has spent as chairman or ranking Democrat on the panel’s Constitution subcommittee and, more recently, its courts subcommittee.

He also politely reminded Democrats in recent days of his efforts, beginning in the mid-1980s and continuing into last decade, to impede Trump’s efforts to develop portions of New York’s Upper West Side, which Nadler has represented in the New York State Assembly, and subsequently the House, for more than 40 years.

Nadler won a secret ballot 118 to 72, demonstrating that this caucus wants to be ready to clash with Trump if it vaults into the majority after next year’s midterm elections.

“There is nobody better prepared, if the president messes around with the Constitution, to handle it than Jerry Nadler,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said after the vote.”

Democrats are trying to downplay their intentions to impeach the President.

Nancy Pelosi has denied they have any intention of taking such a step.

But it’s only because they are afraid that if the midterm election becomes a referendum on impeachment, then conservatives will be motivated to turnout, which will blunt the Democrats enthusiasm advantage.

But promoting Nadler is the clearest indication they will move against Trump.
