Despite lacking any definitive crime, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler has been all for impeaching President Trump. Earlier this month, prior to the latest outrage du jour, Nadler said in an interview on WNYC  that “Impeachment is imperative not because [Trump’s] going to be removed from office. The Senate won’t do that. But because we have to vindicate the Constitution.”

But, back in 1998, Nadler called the impeachment of President Bill Clinton “an undoing of a national election.” Nadler continued, “And one of the reasons we all feel so angry about what they are doing is that … they are ripping asunder our votes. They are telling us our votes don’t count and the election must be set aside.”

It’s been nearly three years since Trump’s surprise victory over Hillary Clinton, and three years since Democrats have been floating impeachment to undo a national election.
