Nadler: Judiciary Committee may vote on articles of impeachment this week

According to the Chairman of the Committee, the wording of the charges will be clarified after the hearing on Monday.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Sunday that articles of impeachment are in the pipeline and the Committee could vote on the counts against President Donald Trump as soon as this week.

Speaking on CNN, Nadler said the Committee “has a lot to take into account” when formulating charges against the Republican President.

“Different people are writing possible options –” he said – “but the fact is that we will make a decision on how broad the articles of accusation should be, what they should contain, what the wording is, only after tomorrow’s hearing.”

On Monday, the Committee will hold a public hearing to review evidence gathered in the investigation into Trump’s request for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden – the leading potential Democratic presidential candidate in the 2020 election.

Democratic lawmakers over the weekend pored over the information obtained from the House Intelligence Committee and constitutional law experts who testified before Congress on Wednesday.
