[Ed. – How surprising coming from a guy who stubbornly insists Mueller’s report states that Trump colluded with Russia.]
Aides to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) say the congressman has privately voiced support for impeachment proceedings against President Trump, The Washington Post reported Sunday.
Nadler has not publicly come forward with supporting impeachment inquiries into Trump, despite mounting pressure from within his own party.
On “Fox News Sunday,” Nadler said he believes former special counsel Robert Mueller‘s report “presents very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors.”
“The administration must be held accountable,” he said.
Nadler, however, stopped short of publicly calling for an impeachment inquiry.
His comments come … ahead of Mueller’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
There are currently 87 House Democrats backing an impeachment inquiry, according to The Hill’s whip list.
The Hill has reached out to Nadler’s office for comment.
