Nadler Says ‘We Are Now in a Constitutional Crisis’

During a press conference after the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt on Wednesday, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler declared that we “are now in a constitutional crisis.”

“We’ve talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis,” Nadler said. “We are now in it. We are now in a constitutional crisis… Now is the time of testing whether we can keep a republic, or whether this republic is destined to change into a different, more tyrannical form of government, as other republics have over the centuries.”
