Nadler: Trump’s Conduct Is ‘Clearly Impeachable’ | NBC News Nadler: Trump’s Conduct Is ‘Clearly Impeachable’ | NBC NewsAfter hearing the reports and the evidence today, we now know several things with certainty. We know that the president was at the center of a scheme to pressure Ukraine to announce. An investigation of the president’s political rivals apply that pressure by withholding both the White House meeting and vital military aid. We know excuses for this kinda. It is no excuse that President Trump eventually released after was revealed to the public. We know that his actions endanger a national security risk. Private political purpose in unprecedented Act of obstruction, ordered everybody in the executive branch to defy or Congressional subpoenas for documents and and subpoenas related to the impeachment inquiry. And we know that his attempts to solicit of political favor from the government of Ukraine did a pattern of conduct that the president established in 2016. Solicited political assistance from the government of Russia undermines our national security and undermines free and fair elections in abusing his office. In this manner and obstructing navigation that followed, we know that President Trump is putting self before his country. I am struck by the fact that my Republican colleagues, I’ve offered no serious scrutiny of the evidence at hand. They have talked about everything, but they have offered not one substantiv word in the president’s defense. I suspect that is because there is at base no real defense for the president’s actions. President Trump put himself before his country. There is a constitutional remedy for a president who undermines our national security and our elections, who puts his own interests before those of the country. That remedy is impeachment. The facts are clear: the danger is clear: pee is clear. President Trump violated his oath to the American people. He plays his own private interests ahead of our national security and the Integrity of our elections and constitutes a continuing threat to the Integrity of our elections and to our democratic system of government. Such conduct is clearly impeachable. This committee will proceed accordingly. This concludes today’s hearing.
