At a meeting of Democratic heavy-hitters this week, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on impeachment, eliciting her “prison” comment heard ’round the world.
But in new details reported by CNN, Nadler crafted his pitch around two central points. One, that impeachment proceedings would centralize the investigations into President Donald Trump and his administration currently sprawled across multiple committees, keeping it all contained within Judiciary.
Second, Nadler argued that procedurally, it’s easy to get information and ask questions during impeachment proceedings than in regular House committee sessions.
Pelosi was joined in her disapproval by Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who doesn’t want to lose his current important position in probing Trump’s actions.
