preliminary impeachment papers filed against trump

February 13, 2017

In this week’s edition of bittersweet presidential campaign news, Democratic congressman of NY Jerrold Nadler has filed preliminary impeachment papers against Trump. As a senior member of the judiciary committee, Congressman Nadler filed a “resolution of inquiry” requesting information from the executive branch pertaining to any communications between President Trump and the Department of Justice as well as more information regarding his business ties to Russia, which the President has vehemently denied. It’s not as straightforward as bringing it straight to Congress and burning him at the stake, but it’s more direct than most Congresspeople are being on either side of the aisle. Shoutout to this bold step towards justice!
