Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) told CNN’s Jake Tapper that if it’s proven that President Trump knew about the hush money payments that his former personal attorney Michael Cohen made, it could be an impeachable offense.

Tapper asked Nadler, the incoming chair of the House Judiciary Committee, which would oversee impeachment if it is proven that Trump coordinated with Cohen, whether illegal campaign payments to Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult film star Stormy Daniels constituted grounds for impeachment.

“Well they would be impeachable offenses,” Nadler said. “Whether they’re important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question.”

Nadler added that even though they were committed before Trump became president, they were committed “in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.”
