Trump did 'nothing that's impeachable': GOP House leader

"This president did nothing that's impeachable," McCarthy told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives had earlier introduced two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Nadler, flanked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and fellow chairs of the committees that investigated whether Trump should be impeached, said his committee would take up the articles later this week, the next step in a process that could ultimately lead to Trump being removed from office.
