President Donald Trump has been pinning a teasing clip in his Twitter which focused on a Democratic rival looking sorrowful at a post-Mueller news conference and ended with “now they have less than nothing.”
The 20-second video features some Democratic leaders at the conference, but zooms in on Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), chairman of House Judiciary Committee, who seemed musing or sleeping.

President Trump appeared at the end of the clip, saying, “The Democrats had nothing, and now they have less than nothing.”
According to Washington Examiner, the video has been kept at top since Friday evening, July 26, as the president took another victory lap over Robert Mueller’s testimony and a growing rift between Democratic leaders on impeachment.
The former special counsel looked shaky and sometimes failed to recall key facts from his report at the testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 24.
An impasse has now emerged among Democratic leaders on whether to engage in an impeachment inquiry against the president. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is against impeachment, but Nadler said his committee has “in effect” begun an impeachment inquiry.
Nadler filed a lawsuit Friday seeking secret grand jury material from the Mueller report, though the former special counsel was required under law to withhold it from the public.
President Trump lashed out at the New York Democrat in a tweet Saturday, saying his administration gave Nadler and Democrats a complete Mueller report, but “Nothing will ever be good enough for them.”
We gave Nadler and his Trump hating Dems the complete Mueller Report (we didn’t have to), and even Mueller himself, but now that both were a total BUST, they say it wasn’t good enough. Nothing will ever be good enough for them. Witch Hunt!
