On the fourth day of the Senate impeachment proceedings, House manager and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) labeled Trump is a “dictator [who] must be removed from office.”
“He wants to be all powerful,” Nadler said. “He doesn’t want to have to respect the Congress, he does not have to respect the representatives of the will of the people.”
“Only his will goes,” Nadler added. “He is a dictator. This must not stand and that is another reason he must be removed from office.”

Earlier this week, Nadler accused Republican Senators who voted against bringing in additional witnesses to the trial of being part of a “cover-up.”
After his comments, several Republican senators at the time, including key moderates Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), said they were “offended” and “stunned” by Nadler’s comments.
