Nadler: ‘People Can Have Different Opinions on Impeachment at the Moment’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) stated that “people can have different opinions on impeachment at the moment.” He also stated that “the walls are closing in and the noose is drawing tighter.”

After hearing a clip of Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) saying that she’s not the only person who feels the way she does about impeachment, Nadler said, “I don’t think either one of us is wrong. I think she is right to feel the way she does. I think she is right in — well, the fact of the matter is, I don’t like that kind of language, but the president opened it — opened up that language. The president has used worse language, far worse language on occasion. So, he has coarsened the discourse. I’m not terribly surprised when other people do the same.”

Anchor Erin Burnett then stated, “But when you said it’s ‘too early’ to ‘intelligently’ talk about impeachment, she’s saying no.”

Nadler responded, “I think people can have different opinions on impeachment at the moment. Certainly, the more we learn, the worse it looks for the president, and especially, when you look at the Manafort — what we learned about Manafort offering private polling information from the Trump campaign to the Russians, and what use would they have, except to target their social media, more effectively, in interfering in our election? I think the walls are closing in and the noose is drawing tighter.”
