Jerry Nadler: ‘This is formal impeachment proceedings’


“This is formal impeachment proceedings,” Jerry Nadler, (D-NY), House Judiciary Committee Chairman said during an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett.

“We are investigating all the evidence, we’re gathering the evidence and we will at the conclusion of this, hopefully by the end of the year, vote to, vote articles of impeachment to the House floor or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that — that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.”

The CNN host asked Nadler to confirm if the process is in fact a formal impeachment and if the committe “has started drafting or preparing articles of impeachment should you need them?”

“There are articles of impeachment introduced a number of months ago and referred to the committee,” Nadler responded.

“As the investigation proceeds, we may want to draft our own articles of impeachment that may more closely fit the evidence. We’ll see.”
