Nadler Floats Impeachment by Late Fall
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Monday told MSNBC that his panel may move to impeach President Trump by late fall.
“If we decide to report articles of impeachment, we could get to that late in the fall, in the latter part of the year,” Nadler said on MSNBC.
A couple weeks ago, the House Judiciary Committee asked a federal judge to unseal the grand jury material related to Mueller’s investigation.
The court filing was used to declare that the Democrats in the House have launched an ‘impeachment investigation’ of President Trump.
Nadler’s Committee is also preparing to sue former White House Counsel Don McGahn to compel his testimony.
“I think that we will probably get court decisions by the end of October, maybe shortly thereafter. We’ll have hearings in September and October with people we don’t — witnesses who are not dependent on the court proceedings,” Nadler said.
Nadler is at odds with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who has been tip toeing around impeachment.
Pelosi is moving forward cautiously trying to appease her radical left base by talking about ‘litigating and building a case’ but she knows impeachment will be political suicide.
A few weeks ago the House overwhelmingly voted against impeaching Trump.
Al Green’s articles of impeachment was dead on arrival because the Democrat-controlled House voted to kill the resolution.
332 “Yeas” to 95 “Nays” to kill the impeachment resolution.
If impeachment somehow makes it through the House, it will be doomed as soon as it reaches the Republican-controlled Senate.
