A leading Democrat was on Meet the Press Sunday morning asking cleverly-phrased “questions” about whether the Kremlin has a hold over President Trump.
Keep in mind, this is Rep. Jerry Nadler, who is in line to become the next chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
WATCH: Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) tells Chuck Todd that obfuscation from the Trump campaign about doing business in Russia “gave the Kremlin a hold over him.” #MTP@RepJerryNadler: “It may be that the Kremlin has leverage over the president” pic.twitter.com/3E6HG9uzdP

Remember that time Democrats wanted voters to believe that they weren’t going to go straight for impeaching Trump if they won back the House?
That was a good one.
Jerry Nadler says the revelation that Cohen lied to Congress amounted to proof that Russia had "leverage" over Trump during the 2016 campaign.
"The fact that [Trump] was lying … and the Kremlin knew he was lying gave the Kremlin a hold over him." https://t.co/hknoNeK6fZ

January is now a month away.
And it looks as if the impeachment argument against the 45th president is set to begin based on this line: “It may be.”
