Rep. Nadler Statement on Family Health Matter and Missing Part of Senate Impeachment Trial

Washington, January 26, 2020

Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), one of the designated House Managers for the Senate Impeachment Trial of President Trump, issued the following statement: 

“In December, following the House Judiciary Committee markup of the Articles of Impeachment against President Donald J. Trump, my wife was admitted to the hospital where she was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. She has undergone surgery and is taking further steps to address the spread of the cancer. On Monday, I will be in New York with her to meet with doctors, determine a path forward, and begin her treatment. I am sorry to miss some of the Senate Impeachment Trial, which is of critical importance to our democracy. I plan to return to Washington late Monday and appreciate the support of my colleagues and staff as I take this time to be with my wife and begin the long fight against her cancer.”
