Democrat Jerry Nadler is working hard to promote the idea that a “constitutional crisis” now exists over controversy surrounding AG William Barr.
Breitbart reported that during a press conference after the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt on Wednesday, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) stated that we “are now in a constitutional crisis.”
Nadler said, “We’ve talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis. We are now in it. We are now in a constitutional crisis. … Now is the time of testing whether we can keep a republic, or whether this republic is destined to change into a different, more tyrannical form of government, as other republics have over the centuries.”

However, Nadler was singing a much different tune years ago, when it came to Special Counsel Ken Starr’s report on former President Bill Clinton.
Washington Examiner reported that Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is the leading Democrat demanding the release of the Mueller Report “in its entirety” without redactions.
His committee is planning to subpoena the Justice Department for the full report.
But back in 1998, as a member of the same committee, he vociferously opposed the release of the full Starr Report, saying that “as a matter of decency and protecting people’s privacy rights, people who may be totally innocent third parties, what must not be released at all.”

Back in 2012, Nadler also walked out of Congress when the GOP voted to hold Eric Holder in contempt.
