House panel seeks evidence to assess impeachment

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REP.

JERRY NADLER, (D) NEW YORK, SAYING: "Where do we go from here?" They still haven't agreed on whether to try to impeach President Donald Trump, but on Friday House Democrats may have moved one step further in that direction.

After WEEKS OF DELAY, Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler told reporters his panel WAS TAKING THEIR BATTLE for Trump-related DOCUMENTS and TESTIMONY TO THE COURT.

The Democrats are ASKING a federal judge to ENFORCE their subpoena, seeking the grand jury evidence behind Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings in the Russia probe.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REP.

JERRY NADLER, (D) NEW YORK, SAYING: "That information is critically important for our ability to examine witnesses and to investigate the president's misconduct." The Justice Department and the White House have defied those efforts.

In an exchange with a reporter, Nadler hinted at the potential impeachment of the president.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER, ASKING: "Are you all beginning to shade into an impeachment inquiry even if you haven't held the formal vote in the House?

Is that what's going on here?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) REP.

JERRY NADLER, (D) NEW YORK, SAYING: "Among other things we will consider are, obviously, are whether to recommend articles of impeachment.

We may not do that.

We may do that, but that's a conclusion at the end of the process." But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to urge caution.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REP.

NANCY PELOSI, HOUSE SPEAKER, SAYING: "We will proceed when we have what we need to proceed.

Not one day sooner." All of this comes days after Mueller's sometimes faltering testimony in Congress…..

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ROBERT MUELLER, FORMER SPECIAL COUNSEL, SAYING: "I'm trying to find that citation." that some, including Trump, said had dealt Democrats a major setback.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "And I watched Bob Mueller and they have nothing." Nadler said the investigations will continue while Congress is away on a six week recess beginning next week.
