Nadler: 'All Options' Including Impeachment on the Table

"All options," including impeachment, are on the table concerning President Trump and the Russia investigation, House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler said Wednesday after special counsel Robert Mueller's first public statement.

"With respect to the impeachment question, at this point, all options are on the table and nothing should be ruled out," Nadler, D-N.Y., said during a press conference, held after he'd made an earlier statement concerning Mueller's comments.

Nadler, in carefully-worded comments, added that Mueller said "loud and clear" that Trump is "lying when he says no collusion, no obstruction and that he was exonerated."

"If Mueller wanted to exonerate the president from having a committed a crime, he would have said so," said Nadler. "Instead the special counsel makes clear that obstruction of justice, which he found substantial evidence of, is a serious crime that strikes at the core of our justice system, and that the Constitution points to Congress to take action to hold the president accountable."

And, he added, "that is exactly what we will do."

Trump's response to "lie repeatedly" and "ignore all congressional subpoenas is immoral and unlawful," said Nadler. "No one is above the law and we will hold the president accountable."

When asked if he will issue a subpoena to Mueller to testify, Nadler said the special counsel "told us a lot of what we need to hear," but it's still important to be clear on his statements.

"He reaffirmed what was in the investigation, which found substantial evidence that Russia attacked our political system, that the Trump campaign benefited from Russia's interference, that Trump and those around him repeatedly welcomed Russia's support, and that throughout the investigation, Trump sought to obstruct justice and undermine Mueller and the investigation over and over again," said Nadler.
