The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary has promised to vote to intensify their impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump over some scandalous act.
The new scandal surrounding the White House emerged related to Trump’s business and his lawyer’s involvement in Ukraine.
Jerry Nadler, the Chairman of the Committee who moved to formalize the investigation said that
“the committee’s investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment with respect to President Donald J. Trump.”
He also defined the investigation along four specific lines: allegations that Trump illegally interfered with the Russia election meddling investigation, that he took part in hush payments to alleged former mistresses, that he has used his office to enrich himself, and that he offered pardons to government and campaign officials to protect him.
“No one is above the law,” Nadler said in a statement.
“The unprecedented corruption, coverup, and crimes by the president are under investigation by the committee as we determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment or other Article 1 remedies,” he said, referring to the US Constitution’s section on legislative powers.
However, it’s unclear if that will ever happen, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has urged caution on the issue, saying the public still isn’t yet supportive of taking such steps.
