WASHINGTON, Jan 7 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office "immediately," House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said in a statement on Thursday.

"I am once again urging that the president be impeached and removed from office. We have a limited period of time in which to act. The nation cannot afford a lengthy, drawn out process, and I support bringing articles of impeachment directly to the House floor," Nadler said.
