House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said in an interview with CNN Thursday that “formal impeachment proceedings” are underway, prompting GOP Rep. Doug Collins to call him out for being off the mark.
“This is formal impeachment proceedings,” Nadler told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “We are investigating all the evidence, gathering the evidence. And we will [at the] conclusion of this — hopefully by the end of the year — vote articles of impeachment to the House floor. Or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.” . . .
"This is formal impeachment proceedings."

But Collins, the ranking member of the committee, said he’s either uninformed or misleading the public about what the committee is actually doing.
Chairman Nadler is either uniformed about what a formal impeachment inquiry is or he is deliberately misleading the American public to score cheap political points. Which is it, Chairman? #moveon https://t.co/OYa3euFPEz
