Rep. Jerrold Nadler
What is wrong with Jerry Nadler?
The Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee on Thursday released transcript of their closed-door interview with former White House Comms Director Hope Hicks.
Hope Hicks arrived on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning to testify to the House Judiciary Committee after Chairman Nadler issued her a subpoena to compel testimony.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, 72, repeatedly referred to Hope Hicks as “Ms. Lewandowski” during the face-to-face interview.
“Ms. Lewandowski — sorry — Ms. Hicks, read the next two sentences also if you have it,” Nadler said.
Nadler referred to Hope Hicks as “Ms. Lewandowski” again and Hicks had to correct him.
“Yeah, Ms. Lewandowski, I think, in reading this –” Nadler said. “My name is Ms. Hicks,” Hope said correcting Nadler again.
“I’m sorry, Ms. Hicks. I’m preoccupied,” Nadler responded.
Did Nadler do this intentionally?

A couple weeks ago Jerry Nadler passed out at a presser with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and was rushed to a hospital in an ambulance.
According to reports, Nadler, who just turned 72 years old, was unresponsive for about a minute and slumped over in his chair.
Now Nadler can’t remember Hope Hicks’ name during a face-to-face interview with her — what is wrong with Nadler?
