Nadler: Trump’s Vow to Oppose Subpoenas is ‘High Crime and Misdeameanor’
In an interview with NBC News on Monday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler stated that President Trump’s vow to oppose all subpoenas by Democrats “is a high crime and misdemeanor under the Constitution.”
“Well, the president clearly is trying to run out the clock,” said Nadler. “The president has been — said he would deny all — oppose all subpoenas. That was article 3 of the Nixon impeachment, that the president opposed subpoenas. Nixon wasn’t foolish enough to say in advance he was going to oppose all subpoenas.
“That in itself, I think, is a high crime and misdemeanor under the Constitution that you’re obstructing the work of Congress in investigating,” he continued.
This just demonstrates how desperate Nadler and his Democrat cohorts have become after three years of trying and failing to pin an impeachable offense on the President.
