A Republican Congressman introduced a resolution that on Tuesday the impeachment of the House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, calling out of his panel contribution for the prosecution of the impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
The procedures were formally late Tuesday backed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
Lance Gooden, R-Texas, said in a press release that Nadler has acted to begin against the will of the house of representatives, which never gave its Committee the Express authorization of impeachment proceedings. The body voted 332-95 in July to table a charges resolution by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas.

Nadler and fellow Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee have been investigating Trump as part of what they called the impeachment process. Especially, Nadler Trump moved former 2016 campaign manager, Cory Lewandowski, before his Committee last week for a fighter for five hours in the witness’s relationship with the possible impeachable conduct by the President.
Pelosi announced that several house committees are now family ahead with a prosecution request, the allegations to respond to, in large part, to examine that Trump recently under pressure-Ukraine-President Biden.
“The actions of the Trump presidency showed, the shameful fact of the President’s betrayal of his oath of office, a betrayal of our national security, and a betrayal of the integrity of our elections,” Pelosi said on Capitol Hill. “I am therefore announcing today that the house of representatives is moving forward with a formal impeachment inquiry.”
Gooden, said Nadler, one is defying the law.
“In the last few days, Democrats sanctimoniously have declared their fidelity to the rule of law,” said Gooden. “I encourage you to follow these rules and keep the Chairman Nadler to break the responsibility for you.”
