As infighting within the Democratic Party continues over the contentious issue of impeachment, it would seem House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler is through heeding the advice of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, charging headfirst into the impeachment issue.
“We’re investigating the question of — we’re investigating the corruptions of the administration, the abuses of power, what Mueller showed, the possible violations of the emoluments clause, that might recommend articles of impeachment and it has been recommended to the committee and we’re investigating to determine whether we should report those to the house and we’re going to court to get more evidence,” Nadler said on Jake Tapper’s State of the Union on Sunday.
“My personal view is that he richly deserves impeachment,” Nadler said when Tapper asked his personal opinion on the issue. “He has done many impeachable — he’s violated the law six ways from Sunday. But that is not the question. The question is can we develop enough evidence to put before the American people who — we’ve broken the log jam.”
With Nadler now seemingly entrenching himself in the impeachment camp, despite Pelosi’s misgivings, one must wonder if this signifies a turn for the Democratic establishment in their position on impeachment, or if Nadler is merely an outlier.
