The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said on Wednesday there did not appear to be support at the moment for a formal impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia probe.

“It very well may come to a formal impeachment inquiry,” Democratic Representative Jerrold Nadler told CNN in an interview. “There does not appear to be support for it now. And we will see. The support may develop.”
