Nadler: A House impeachment vote would happen before Democratic nominee is decided 1

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler says any impeachment vote would likely happen before the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee is decided.

“Candidates for the president are going to run on whatever they run on,” the New York Democrat told the Washington Examiner, when asked about overlap. “By the time of the campaign, the president will or will not have been impeached.”

Sitting lawmakers, such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts or Bernie Sanders of Vermont, would face more pressure than out-of-office rivals, such as former Vice President Joe Biden.
