House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), whose committee would be responsible for starting impeachment proceedings, told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that "it's very clear" President Trump obstructed justice.

"1,100 times he referred to the Mueller investigation as a 'witch hunt.' He tried to protect Flynn from being investigated by the FBI. He fired Comey in order to 'stop the Russia thing,' as he told NBC News. He's dangled pardons, he's intimidated witnesses in public."
— Nadler

The big picture: Nadler acknowledged that the committee is still a “long way” from impeachment and that it needs to be able to persuade the American people that impeachment is warranted — not just politically motivated. While it waits for special counsel Robert Mueller's report to be made public, Nadler said the committee will demand documents from more than 60 Trump associates, including Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg.
