The man who would oversee impeachment as the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., is calling President Donald Trump the "greatest threat" to U.S. democracy "since the Civil War."
"I view this president and his conduct as the greatest threat to the democratic system and to the constitutional government since the Civil War – whether it's threatening the newspapers or threatening the judiciary or calling people who criticize him treasonous," Nadler reportedly tells "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. on Sunday.
Nadler told host John Catsimatidis the House is going to investigate the White House's "abuse or power," potential "obstruction of justice," and emoluments violations.
"Clearly . . . there have been major abuses of power, major obstruction of justice, obvious violations of the emoluments clause of the Constitution," Nadler said. "All of these have to be looked at."
