Washington -  The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee says he believes it would be an “impeachable offense” if it’s proved that President Donald Trump directed illegal hush-money payments to women during the 2016 campaign.

But Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, who’s expected to chair the panel in January, says it’s unclear whether that alone would justify Congress launching impeachment proceedings.

Nadler tells CNN’s “State of the Union” that Congress, the Justice Department and the special counsel need to get to the bottom of the allegations, including questions about lying about business arrangements with Russians and possible obstruction of justice.

In legal filings Friday, prosecutors for the first time tied Trump to a federal crime, accusing him of directing payments to women who claimed extramarital affairs. He has denied wrongdoing.

That’s exactly what they intend to spend their time and power on, trying to bring down the best and most successful Pres in US history, because they know he will whip them in the 2020 elections too! Democrats don’t care a hoot for the country or the welfare of its citizens, only their own power.and that is why they’re lucky liberal voters are very low IQ otherwise they couldn’t get anyone to vote for them! They ran on no agenda other than sticking it to Trump, and their very stupid followers were fine with that.

Too bad, elections have consequences. You guys lost. He will chair the Judiciary Committee in 3 weeks. What comes around goes around. They did the same to Obama and Hillary. 5 Congressional investigations on Benghazi? No one even knows where Benghazi is. Not a single indictment. Trump is up to 32 Indictment. What a difference. By next Channukah ij"h we well see the LIGHT . Trump will be IMPEACHED.

Stop wondering. The Clintons were investigated for 25 years. ZERO. TRUMP? 2 years and 32 Indictments and now the POTUS himself is charged with a crime.

"What alleged law" Good question. Why don't you ask the Department of Justice who bought the charges and Cohen pleaded guilty to those "alleged charges" FYI The dept of Justice is under the POTUS whose name is TRUMP. He is the Boss. His people are getting rid of him.

I believe Nadler is referring to Campaign Finance law, but let the lawyers expound on this.

This is not grounds for impeachment. If there is conspiracy with Russian government agents or obstruction that's one thing. This is not sufficient grounds.

Fake news.

Trump increased seats in the senate. Only person to do this in 100 years was Regan.

Obama lost way more congressional seats.

So please stop the fake news.

Name the ‘normal’ Country you mention! The fact is you have a proclivity to violence and there is nothing ‘normal’ about your proposition, or even the very extreme expressions against Nadler. Seek help then learn some mussar.

He had no money at the time. Women were also much more hesitant to come forward
