House Judiciary Committee releases report before Monday hearing (ASL - 12.8.19)

Posted on 12/09/2019


The House Judiciary Committee released a report Saturday laying out historical arguments for impeachment.

It lays the groundwork for Monday's hearing where House Intelligence and Judiciary committees will present their evidence.

However the document does not accuse President Trump of committing impeachable offenses.

It is an update of the committee reports that were used in 1974 and 1998 during impeachment proceedings of Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler issued a statement Saturday accusing Trump of abusing his power, betraying national security and corrupting elections.

He said impeachment is the only remedy for what he called misconduct.

The House may introduce articles of impeachment as early as next week.
