The Circus Continues: Nadler Says Dems will Continue to Investigate Trump Despite Acquittal
House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) says Congress will continue to investigate President Trump despite his impeachment acquittal earlier today.
The Congressman told CNN’s Manu Raju that it was “likely” that Democrats would subpoena former National Security Adviser John Bolton and continue to investigate the president.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler tells us that House Dems will “likely” subpoena John Bolton and continue with investigations to follow after today.
“I think it’s likely yes,” he told me of issuing a Bolton subpoena.

“First of all, I think when you have a lawless president, you have to bring that to the fore and you have to spotlight that. You have to protect the Constitution, whatever the political consequences. Second of all, no, as more and more lawlessness comes out, I presume the public will understand that,” Nadler said.
Bolton–who has a book coming out–dominated headlines earlier this month after the New York Times reported that “multiple sources” with access to his book manuscript claimed that President Trump told the former National Security Adviser that he wished to withhold security aid from Ukraine until they provided information on his political rivals.
The Senate voted earlier today to acquit President Trump. The abuse of power charge was voted down 52-48 and the final vote on the obstruction of justice charge was 53-47.
