Nadler: Evidence Impeachable if Proven 04/21 11:30

   A House committee chairman says the evidence of obstruction by President 
Donald Trump detailed in the special counsel's report is impeachable if proven.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- A House committee chairman says the evidence of 
obstruction by President Donald Trump detailed in the special counsel's report 
is impeachable if proven.

   Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York chairs the House committee that 
would hold impeachment proceedings. He says it's up to Congress to investigate 
the 10 allegations of Trump's attempts to obstruct the Russia investigation 
that special counsel Robert Mueller laid out but left open whether Trump broke 
the law.

   Asked whether the offenses are impeachable, Nadler told NBC, "If proven, 
some of this would be impeachable, yes." He said Democrats' focus is to "go 
where the evidence leads us."

   Democratic leaders are under pressure from the party's rising stars and some 
presidential contenders to start impeachment proceedings. House Democrats will 
confer Monday on next steps.
