STATEMENT: CAP Action’s Neera Tanden Calls Nadler Move on Impeachment a Powerful Step Forward

Washington, D.C. – In response to the announcement that House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is taking steps that could lead to impeachment, Center for American Progress Action Fund President and CEO Neera Tanden issued the following statement:

Chairman Nadler’s announcement of an inquiry on whether to impeach is a powerful step forward in holding President Donald Trump accountable. This action from the House Judiciary chairman should provide a powerful tool in the courts to break through the unprecedented stonewall that Trump and Attorney General William Barr have built. The American people are entitled to know what Trump is hiding, and Chairman Nadler is fulfilling one of the most important responsibilities of the legislative branch.
