Nadler is an idiot. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said on "Fox News Sunday" that Robert Mueller's report presents "very substantial evidence" that President Donald Trump is "guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors" -- an impeachable offense. There is no way the allegations can, or will be proven. Nadler is taking the allegations from the Constitution.
