Nadler: Judiciary To Vote on Impeachment 'Procedures'

By    |   Wednesday, 11 September 2019 12:05 PM

House Judiciary Committee members are ready to vote on procedures involved in an impeachment inquiry on President Donald Trump, but that is not the only thing in front of the group, Chairman Jerry Nadler said Wednesday. 

"We reported out the six bills yesterday," the New York Democrat told MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "(There are) three bills dealing with reducing gun violence, one bill to stop forced arbitration so people have their rights to trial, and tomorrow we are going to vote on procedures."

Nadler noted that for the past several months, the committee has been involved in investigating Trump's "various misconducts" to determine whether to recommend impeachment articles to the House...we've been doing that consistently."

On Thursday, committee members will adopt procedures that will enable them to recommend articles "more effectively," said Nadler. "We will be adopting a procedure to enable counsel to cross-examine witnesses for half an hour after all the members have had their five minutes apiece. Another rule will be to allow us to handle sensitive information privately, and the third rule will be to afford the president's counsel the opportunity to submit questions or answers to various accusations before the committee."

When asked if he thinks Americans would rather the committee concentrate on gun background checks or impeachment, Nadler pointed out the House approved a bill on guns "way back in February" but the measure has been stalled in the Senate while Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hasn't allowed the bill to come up for a vote. 

On Wednesday, the committee added a ban on high capacity magazines, and extreme risk protection orders, on a federal and state level, said Nadler.
