Local Congressman Jerry Nadler is leading his second impeachment process in just two years running the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler presented the 76-page impeachment report on Tuesday night, just six days after Trump supporters rioted at the Capitol Building, leading to the deaths of five people.
The report explains why Democratic leadership is moving forward with the impeachment effort even if it may not be complete until he is out of office.
“As alleged in the Article of Impeachment and described in this report, President Trump has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law, the report says. “His continued hold on the Office of the Presidency, even for only a few more days, represents a clear and present danger to the United States.”
Trump has said his speech before the riot was “totally appropriate.”
