Jerry Nadler Announces He’s Leaving Impeachment Trial Early: ‘I Need To Be Home’

As Republican senators and Democratic House Managers enter the potentially final hours of President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, one of the leading voices of the Democratic party’s push to impeach the president, Rep. Jerry Nadler, made an announcement ahead of Friday’s expected witness vote.

In a Friday afternoon tweet, Nadler announced that he would be leaving Washington D.C. to be at home with his wife. Nadler is one of seven House Managers who have argued in favor of removing Trump from office to a Senate jury.

“I am sorry to not be able to stay in Washington for the conclusion of the Senate impeachment trial but I need to be home with my wife at this time. We have many decisions to make as a family. I have every faith in my colleagues and hope the Senate will do what is right,” Nadler tweeted.

Politico reported that Nadler had plans on departing from the impeachment trial early because of his wife, Joyce Miller, who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He and his family will be determining plans for treatment.

Some social media users — those who weren’t aware of Nadler’s wife’s cancer situation — speculated that Nadler’s reason for leaving was due to the now inevitable conclusion of the House-led impeachment push, which will likely end in a vote to kill the call for witnesses followed by a speedy, successful vote to acquit Trump of the two articles of impeachment he’s facing.

Other users wished Nadler well and agreed that taking care of his sick spouse took priority over Trump’s impeachment trial.
