At the end of a contentious hearing on Tuesday, House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) told President Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski that his behavior was "completely unacceptable" and "part of a pattern by a White House desperate for the American people not to hear the truth." The committee's Democrats are investigating whether to recommend articles of impeachment against Trump, and Nadler said the hearing focused on "presidential obstruction of justice and abuse of power." Lewandowski had been ordered by Trump to not answer any questions about conversations they had after Trump became president, and Nadler said this was "troubling" and "an absolute cover-up by the White House." Nadler also said he was considering holding Lewandowski in contempt.
