‘Homicidal Maniacs’: Mother Of Murder Victim Chews Out Dem Rep. Jerry Nadler At Manhattan Crime Hearing

The mother of a 35-year-old man murdered in New York City passionately responded to Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler’s critical comment about her testimony at the House Judiciary Committee’s Monday Manhattan violent crime hearing, saying two more people should be serving life in prison for her son’s death.

Former Army Sgt. Hason Correa was murdered in a 2018 gang assault in Harlem, with Christopher and James Saunders being sentenced to 20 years to life in prison, Travis Stewart receiving a seven-year sentence and Mary Saunders getting a 14-month sentence of time already served in the case under Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, according to the New York Post.

After Hason’s mother, Victims Rights Reform Council Chairwoman Madeline Brame, declared during the Monday hearing that the criminals who murdered her son had “absolutely not” received justice, Nadler said she “failed to note” that two men were currently serving life sentences for the murder “as a result of DA Bragg’s prosecution.”

“There are four people directly responsible for his murder. Two people is not justice, and until there is justice for the murder of my son, there will be no peace, none,” Brame said. “I’m asking for a special prosecutor to reopen those murder and gang assault charges against Mary Saunders and Travis Stewart. Present that evidence, present that video to a jury, and allow them to decide those homicidal maniacs’ innocence or guilt.”

Republican California Rep. Darrell Issa later gave Brame the chance to respond to Nadler’s words. Brame emphasized that her son was “dead forever,” arguing that Stewart and Mary Saunders “deserve to be in prison forever” accordingly.

Matt Gaetz Responds To Jerry Nadler Objecting His Request To Recite Pledge Of Allegiance Before Judiciary Hearings

Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler shut down Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz’s request to recite the Pledge of Allegiance before the House Judiciary Committee during a Wednesday hearing.

During the first Judiciary hearing with the new GOP-led Congress, Gaetz put forward an amendment to recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of each hearing, to which Nadler responded, saying, “I would oppose it simply on the grounds that, as members know, we pledge allegiance every day on the floor and I don’t know why we should pledge allegiance twice in the same day, to show how patriotic we are.” Gaetz mentioned he thought it would be a unifying and patriotic act.

Gaetz responded to Nadler’s opposition exclusively to the Daily Caller, saying, “Standing for the American flag isn’t controversial. Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance isn’t a waste of time. Democrats are so outraged at the idea of a daily dose of patriotism that they spent 30 minutes ranting and raving in opposition. Congress cannot expect the American people to believe they are fighting for their values when they don’t even care to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.”


“It’s absurd that Democrats on the committee don’t even want to say the pledge of allegiance. You would think it would be a simple request – not so for the Judiciary Democrats, who almost seemed allergic to reciting the pledge,” Republican North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop told the Daily Caller.

In 2021, House Judiciary Democrats appeared to make fun of Gaetz’s request to have the committee recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of hearings on a hot mic.

At the time, the Daily Caller obtained a video file from the hearing which included audio of a group of Democrats joking about Republicans’ request to have the Pledge of Allegiance recited before committee hearings. In the video, Tennessee Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen and an unidentified House Democrat can be heard appearing to joke about the request. They were reminded by a staffer that their microphones were hot, according to the audio.

The Caller contacted Nadler’s office about his opposition to Gaetz’s move to say the Pledge of Allegiance before Judiciary Committee meetings, to which they did not immediately respond.
