Democrats have solid case against Trump – Nadler
The Congress Chairman of Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler, said he has confidence the Democrats has solid case for impeachment against President Donald Trump.
He said that considering the evidences, if the Democrats presented their case to a jury, it would give a “guilty verdict in about three minutes flat.”
According to Nadler, there is considerable direct evidence for the impeachment stressing that “it behooves a President or his partisans to say you don’t have enough direct evidence when the reason we don’t have even more evidence is the President has ordered everybody in the executive branch not to cooperate with Congress in the impeachment inquiry.”
His comment comes in the wake of his committee’s report laying historical argument for impeachment.
Although the report did not accuse Trump of committing impeachable offenses, but it lays the groundwork for hearing before the panel, where evidence against Trump will be presented by the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, as well as the possible introduction of articles of impeachment later.
Nadler said decisions about what to include in articles of impeachment will be made following the hearing, stating that, “We’re going to have to take a lot of considerations into account.”
“What is the level of proof for the various allegations? How do they relate together? What is the level of support in our caucus and in the House for them? What might we persuade the Senate of -all of these things have to be taken into account, realizing again that the central allegation, it’s all of a pattern,” Nadler said.
