Nadler shuts down Republican point of order after impeachment question

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) asked for a point of inquiry as former special counsel Robert Mueller’s hearing before the House Judiciary Committee dragged past its original end time on Wednesday, a move committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) quickly dismissed.

{mosads}”Was the point of this hearing to get Mr. Mueller to recommend impeachment?” Johnson asked Nadler.

“That is not a fair point of inquiry,” Nadler said.

“The gentlelady from Florida is recognized,” Nadler said, moving on as Johnson tried to raise the point of order again.  

The moment happened after Nadler said that with Mueller’s “indulgence,” that he would extend the hearing by roughly 15 minutes to allow all Democrats on the committee to question Mueller.

At the time the last Republican, Johnson, wrapped his closing arguments, five members had not yet questioned Mueller.
