Nadler Promises to Investigate Trump’s ‘Contempt for Law’

Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Rep. Jerry Nadler said his House Judiciary Committee would be investigating President Trump’s “contempt for law.”

Asked about reports the president told border agents to stop letting asylum seekers in the country, Nadler said, “My response is this shows the president’s contempt for law, another incidence of the president’s contempt for law, to order that something clearly illegal, mainly blocking people claiming asylum from coming into the country which is clearly against our law… This is exactly contrary to the key presidential duty and to his oath which is to say that the laws are faithfully executed.”
