President Donald Trump is going to "learn that he's not above the law" once Democrats take over the House, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who is set to become the House Judiciary Committee chairman, is warning.
“This election was about accountability,” the New York Democrat told CNN. “Donald Trump may not like hearing it, but for the first time, his administration is going to be held accountable. He's going to learn that he’s not above the law."
Nadler said his committee is not currently "planning to do impeachment proceedings," but it is going to focus on looking into the administration's immigration, environmental and healthcare policies.
However, that could change after the results of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling finishes, he said.
“We’ll see where the Mueller investigation goes,” he said. “I think it’s way too early to talk about impeachment. We have to see what the Mueller investigation comes up with.”
Trump, though, while speaking of his willingness to work with the House Democratic majority, warned on Twitter that he'll be willing to respond to House investigations with investigations at the Senate level, as "two can play that game!"
