Jerry Nadler is keeping the pressure on.

The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday subpoenaed the Department of Homeland Security for documents connected to President Donald Trump’s alleged offer to pardon officials who break the law while carrying out his immigration agenda.
Trump has denied making such an offer, and his allies have reportedly claimed his closed-door comments — revealed in media reports — were jokes. But Democrats say they want to see the records from inside the department, particularly as the Judiciary Committee weighs the prospect of impeachment.
“The Framers did not envision the use of the presidential pardon power to encourage criminal acts at the president’s direction,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said in a statement. “As the committee continues its investigation into whether to recommend articles of impeachment, it is imperative that we are able to obtain information about ongoing presidential misconduct and abuses of power.”
Nadler said his panel will also hold hearings in the coming months related to the issue of pardons as it continues its sweeping investigation into possible obstruction of justice, corruption and abuses of power by the president.
The New York Democrat added that the “troubling pattern of obstruction of justice would represent a continuation of the misconduct identified in the Mueller report.”
So essentially this is also part of the impeachment investigation concerning Trump’s almost daily abuse of power.
You know during the Watergate investigation Congress had to dig deep to find evidence of wrongdoing.
This time around they just need to patiently gather the evidence as it falls right at their feet.
By the time Nadler is finished, he will likely have enough data to impeach ten presidents.
