Nadler Declares Both Senate And President Are Now On Trial: ‘Unconstitutional’

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) announced that both the Senate and President Trump are on trial and if House managers don’t get to introduce everything they want during an impeachment trial in the Senate it would be “unconstitutional.”

Yep. If things don't go the way Nadler wants in the Senate, he claims it's a violation of the Constitution.

“This is a test of the Constitution, the president's conduct violates the constitution in every single way, trying to rig an election,” Nadler said at a press conference Wednesday.

“Stonewalling the Congress is saying, ‘no and they testify because I can have a cover up despite Congress.’

But it's a test of the Constitution now. The Senate is intended by the Constitution to conduct a fair trial. The American people know that in a trial you permit witnesses - you present the evidence. 

If the Senate doesn't permit the introduction of all relevant witnesses and of all documents that the House wants to introduce because the House is the prosecutor here, then the Senate is engaging in an unconstitutional and disgusting cover up. So the question is, does the Senate? The Senate is on trial as well as the president,” Nadler said.

And if Jerry Nadler doesn't get what he wants, it would seem the Senate would be found guilty.

At Wednesday's briefing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)  announced seven lawmakers to serve as the House managers to prosecute the impeachment argument against President Trump in the Senate.

Nadler is to join Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.); Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo), Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla), Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas), and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) on the House team.
