House Democrats recently elected Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) to fill their top mark on the House Judiciary Committee by a far-reaching domain — and there are signs that it’s since they consider he’s best matched to prosecute an impeachment case against President Donald Trump.
As the Washington Post’s Paul Kane writes, Nadler’s preference to represent the Democrats as ranking member on the Judiciary Committee is “the clearest sign nonetheless of how seriously House Democrats consider the probability of a full-blown inherent showdown with Trump.”
Even yet many Democrats won’t publicly speak about impeaching Trump should they retake control of the House in 2018, Kane records that Nadler’s credentials creates him an ideal choice to lead any impeachment charge. In particular, he says that Nadler is a inherent law consultant who also battled Trump in the 1980s to block his efforts to rise on New York’s Upper West Side.
“There is nobody better prepared, if the boss messes around with the Constitution, to hoop it than Jerry Nadler,” pronounced Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), a Nadler ally.
Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA), meanwhile, explained that Nadler was in the best position to make “the inherent argument” against Trump’s presidency — and he pronounced it was a sign that Democrats indispensable to “prepare for the coming storm.”
