Incoming House chair Nadler promises investigations, Payments to women ‘would be impeachable offenses’

New court filings show Donald Trump was “at the center of a massive fraud” against the American people, the incoming chair of the House judiciary committee said on Sunday.

Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat set to take over the panel in January, said Trump would have committed impeachable offenses if it is proven that he ordered his lawyer to make illegal payments to women to keep quiet about alleged sexual encounters.

“What these indictments and filings show is that the president was at the center of a massive fraud – several massive frauds against the American people,” Nadler said on CNN’s “State of the Union”.

Federal prosecutors said in court filings on Friday that Trump directed his then lawyer, Michael Cohen, to commit two felonies: payments made to women who said they had sex with Trump in return for their silence, in an effort to influence the 2016 election.

“They would be impeachable offenses,” Nadler said, though he added it would still be a judgment call for lawmakers whether the offenses were important enough to warrant impeachment proceedings, which should only be launched in the gravest circumstances.

“Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question,” he said. “But certainly, they’d be impeachable offenses, because even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.”

  1. Not to be partisan here, but what about the payment from the DNC and Clinton campaign to Fusion GPS, or does Representative Nadler not consider that trying to influence an election?

  2. I read this in the Guardian this morning and would have commented there – but the Guardian has taken down their comments section. (I suppose too much resistance to the narrative they are trying to sell.)

    Trump paid off some women to be quiet about affairs. BFD. Sill nothing substantive on the Russia-collusion charges.

  3. Swamp was never drained in fact stacked w/ more Zionist’s than before. Some even from Obama’s regime. DS SES (Brzezinski installed in 1979 as he directed Carter to do). Easy to see when you research & think outside the Tesseract. Secret societies still the origin & source of Chaos.

  4. What fraud? Donny the Draft Dodger has already told US that Israel is the only thing that matters to him. At least he is honest about it.
