House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Monday for the first time announced he supports the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Nadler has been making waves and moving toward an impeachment inquiry – last week has said nomenclature is unimportant, and that the House is conducting an impeachment inquiry.


But ABC News White House and Capitol Hill reporter Katherine Faulders says this is the first time Nadler has gone as far as to say he supports impeaching President Donald Trump.

“Personally, I think the president ought to be impeached,” Nadler said Monday on WNYC radio.

His remarks come just days after the Barr Dept. of Justice petitioned the courts to block Congress from accessing grand jury documents from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-month long Russia probe. The DOJ claims the House is not conducting an impeachment inquiry.
