House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said during a committee hearing on Dec. 11 that America can’t wait until 2020 to see if President Donald Trump gets beaten by a Democrat.
“We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems, when the president threatens the very integrity of that election,” Nadler claimed.
He was speaking during a tense markup of articles of impeachment against the president.
Democrats say Trump obstructed the congressional investigation into his alleged use of the presidency to demand a foreign government attack his political rivals.
Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to “look into” corruption allegations surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden and his son. Trump referenced Biden bragging last year about how he in 2016 threatened to withhold $1 billion from Ukraine unless then-President Petro Poroshenko ousted a prosecutor, Viktor Shokin.
Shokin was probing Burisma, the employer of Biden’s son, Hunter Biden at the time Biden made his remarks.
Nadler is not the first Democrat to say that the impeachment trial is about an election and nothing more. And several have also said that when Trump wins in 2020 they will continue to attempt impeachment for as many times as it takes.
