House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler has rejected to call witnesses suggested by Republicans in the House impeachment investigation because “they are irrelevant.”

Nadler appeared on CNN on Sunday to discuss the ongoing impeachment proceedings in the House and provide an update on the articles of impeachment being drafted against President Trump. Host Dana Bash questioned why Democrats have rejected the Republican list of proposed witnesses, including California Rep. Adam Schiff, who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Nadler said that the witnesses must be “relevant.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’ve said no to because they’re irrelevant. They [Republicans] can appeal to the full committee if they wish, and we’ll have a vote on that. But like any trial judge, you keep the witnesses to the relevancy,” Nadler said.
