Rep. Lance Gooden introduced legislation Tuesday to remove House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler and end the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Gooden argued that the Judiciary Committee was denied authorization to begin impeachment proceedings by overwhelmingly rejecting H.R. 498 in July. however, Nadler has continued to claim he is “impeaching the president– right now.”
“In recent days Democrats have sanctimoniously declared their allegiance to the rule of law. I encourage them to follow those rules and hold Chairman Nadler accountable for breaking them,” Gooden stated.
“This attempted coup against a duly-elected, sitting president is unprecedented and must be stopped,” he added. “I urge the Majority to move immediately to have him stripped of his chairmanship and that any accomplices on the Judiciary Committee not be considered as a replacement.”
