The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee — and its likely next chairman — said Sunday the panel has no plans to investigate or impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., pushed back on a Federalist report of a private conversation in which Nadler is said to have been overheard talking about a Kavanaugh impeachment.
"I'm not going to comment on a private conversation with a friend," Nadler said, adding however, the panel would look into whether the FBI investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh was "adequate."
"One of the things the committee has to do is investigate the question of the FBI not doing a proper investigation because of White House interference so that we can do whatever's necessary to make sure that investigations in the future are adequate," he said.
He also said there are no plans to bring impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
"Impeachment is a question that will come up down the road, maybe, depending on the findings of the Mueller investigation and other investigations," he said. "We're far from that right now."
