(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said House Democrats have been unfairly targeting the Trump administration with numerous investigations in an attempt to lay the groundwork for impeachment.

McCarthy told ABC’s “This Week” that the insistence of Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., that Trump obstructed justice is just a façade to get Trump out of office.

McCarthy’s comments follow dozens of document requests from the House Judiciary Committee, which Nadler currently chairs, to persons connected to the White House.

“I think Congressman Nadler decided to impeach the president the day the president won the election,” McCarthy said. “He talked about impeachment before he even became chairman and then he says you’ve got to persuade people to get there.”

McCarthy said that despite the nonstop fishing expeditions endorsed by partisan Democrats in the House, no evidence has yet been presented that would point to an impeachable offense. That hasn’t stopped Democratic leaders from drawing their own foregone conclusions and pursuing them—at great expense to taxpayers.

“In this process to be impeached, show me where the president did anything to be impeached,” McCarthy added. “The other thing you have to find is, listen to what Nadler said. Nadler is setting the framework now that the Democrats are not to believe the Mueller report. They’re now saying we have to do our own investigation.”

Many have speculated that the Mueller report will conclude this week and be submitted to Attorney General William Barr, setting up a showdown with House Democrats, who want the full report made available so that they can leak it to the public.

However, should the contents of the report fail to produce the bombshells long hyped by the Left, the Democrats plan to press on until they find what they are looking for.

“Tomorrow, we will be issuing document requests to over 60 different people and individuals from the White House to the Department of Justice, Donald Trump Jr., Allen Weisselberg, to begin the investigations to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power,” Nadler told ABC News on Sunday.

Trump came under fire a few weeks ago for granting his son-in-law Jared Kushner a security clearance despite the government’s advice not to.

But McCarthy said the president has the right to decide who advises him and who doesn’t.

“The president looked at the concerns and the president says those weren’t concerns,” McCarthy said. “If we went through every person who had this authority before,  I’ll guarantee you other people had concerns raised with them. The president gets to make that decision.”
