Jury would convict Trump ‘in 3 minutes flat,’ says key lawmaker Dec 09, 2019 0 543 12345 AFPWashingtonThe chairman of the US House Judiciary Committee said on Sunday that if the impeachment case against President Donald Trump were put to a jury, there “would be a guilty verdict in three minutes flat.” Representative Jerry Nadler told CNN that the evidence that Trump put personal interests above those of his country in dealing with Ukraine was “rock solid.” He did not rule out the possibility of a House vote on impeaching Trump by the end of the week.That would put it on a fast track to a trial before the Republican-controlled Senate, where Trump is expected to prevail.Nadler’s committee will meet today to begin weighing evidence compiled by the House Intelligence Committee on whether Trump linked military aid and a meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky to a request that Kyiv investigate a potential 2020 rival, Democrat Joe Biden, and his son Hunter.Nadler, asked whether he felt confident that Trump personally directed improper approaches to Ukraine, replied, “Yes.” “We have a very rock solid case. I think the case we have, if presented to a jury, would be a guilty verdict in three minutes flat.” RELATED ARTICLES 30,000 MONKS ATTEND MASS ALMS-GIVING IN MYANMAR Dec 09, 2019 0 555 At least 43 killed in ‘horrific’ factory fire in India’s capital Dec 09, 2019 0 980 UK’s Johnson leaves political future open in case of Tory defeat in Thursday’s vote Dec 09, 2019 0 621 Kim has ‘everything’ to lose with hostile acts, warns Trump AFP Washington President Donald Trump warned on Sunday that North Korea’s Kim Jong-un had “everything” to lose through hostility towards the United States, after Pyongyang said it had carried out a major new weapons ..
