Chairman Nadler Statement Ahead of House Transmitting Article of Impeachment & Trump Impeachment Trial
Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler released the following statement ahead of the House Impeachment Managers transmitting H.Res. 24, An Article of Impeachment Charging President Trump with Incitement of Insurrection, to the Senate. The impeachment trial will start the week of February 8th.
“Today, our team of managers will deliver the article of impeachment to the Senate and formally begin the second trial of Donald Trump. Although I remain hopeful for our country after the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris, we must not give Donald Trump a pass for inciting a deadly insurrection on our Capitol just a few weeks ago. He must be held accountable. The future of this country is at stake. The House has done its job by impeaching Trump, and now the Senate must complete the task by ensuring that he is never again in a position to directly harm the United States."
