Nadler has before said former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report presents “very substantial evidence” that Trump is “guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors” — an impeachable offense.

Needs “more evidence” to determine whether or not the chamber should take the first step in a long impeachment process.

Nadler said Sunday that:
Despite the fact that fewer than half of House Democrats support launching an impeachment probe, Mueller’s testimony.
“inflection point” for the country and that as more evidence is uncovered the American people will come to “understand the gravity of the situation.”
