Nadler Publically CONFIRMS Impeachment Proceedings Have Begun

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler is no fan of President Trump. It has publically been his goal to impeach the president since he was elected in November of 2016.

Now, for the first time publically, Nadler has confirmed that impeachment proceedings against President Trump have begun in his judiciary committee.

According to Politico:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said publicly for the first time on Thursday that his panel is conducting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, adding that the committee will decide by the end of the year whether to refer articles of impeachment to the House floor.

The committee has said as much in recent court filings as it seeks former special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury materials and testimony from his investigation’s star witnesses. But it was a rare rhetorical escalation from the New York Democrat, who has privately pushed Speaker Nancy Pelosi to support a formal inquiry of whether to remove the president from office.

“This is formal impeachment proceedings,” Nadler said in a CNN interview. “We are investigating all the evidence, gathering the evidence. And we will [at the] conclusion of this — hopefully by the end of the year — vote to vote articles of impeachment to the House floor. Or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.”

That timeline would put an impeachment battle in the middle of the Democratic presidential primary contests, which begin in early 2020 — a concern for Democrats who believe that the window to act on impeachment is quickly closing.

Last month a court filing revealed that Democrats were considering whether or not to impeach.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has warned against impeachment while urging investigations, but it seems like she won't be able to hold off the radical Democrats much longer.
