Nadler Steps in Some Schiff

( – As the Senate impeachment trial came to a close on Thursday, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) appears to have stepped in some Schiff. He did so over the very loud objections of his colleague.

At the end of the evening, Chief Justice John Roberts handed the hearing over to lawmakers for their closing arguments. It appears House Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) was going to speak for Democrats, but Nadler speed-walked to the Senate podium. In a video of the incident, you can see Nadler walk right past Schiff who was vocally objecting, saying, “Jerry, Jerry, Jerry.”

Unbothered, Nadler kept doing his thing:

The internet and media reacted swiftly. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell said it was the fastest he has ever seen Nadler move:

President Trump also had a field day with it:

Various Republicans also joined in on the fun.

Nadler was well within his rights to speak. As the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, impeachment proceedings should be his jurisdiction. However, we all know how Schiff craves the spotlight.
