House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. said President Donald Trump is now making it impossible to rule out impeachment.
“The president’s posture now is making it impossible to rule out impeachment or anything else,” Nadler is quoted by The Washington Times. “The letter we got from the White House is beyond outrageous. … Obviously, this flies in the face of 200 years of history, and if accepted it would go to making the president, any president, a dictator, and we cannot accept that,”
The May 15 letter from White House counsel Pat Cipollone to Nadler takes the view that the committee’s probe serves no legitimate purpose.
And in an interview with MSNBC on Thursday, Nadler said: “Everything the president does now is making it more and more impossible to rule out impeachment. The fact that the president now takes the official position that Congress cannot investigate fraud, abuse, waste, abuse of power, obstruction of justice, (and) corruption in the administration is outrageous.”
Nadler said: “We’re going to continue our hearings and try to enforce our subpoenas.”
