Chairman of the US House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, set Twitter afire during an interview on CNN on Sunday following remarks about the ongoing impeachment against US President Donald Trump.

Democratic representative Jerrold Nadler said that the House has enough evidence against Trump to cause a jury to convict him in what he described as “three minutes flat.”

“We have a very rock solid case. The case we have if presented to a jury would be a guilty verdict in about three minutes flat,” the congressman asserted on CNN Sunday.

Nadler slammed the Trump administration’s claims that House Democrats do not have enough evidence to prove that Trump withheld up to $400 million in military aid to Ukraine as a means of pressuring Kiev to launch an investigation into allegations against Trump’s 2020 political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

“There is considerable direct evidence. it ill behooves a president or his partisans to say you don’t have enough direct evidence when the reason we don’t have even more evidence is the president has ordered everybody in the executive branch not to cooperate with Congress in the impeachment inquiry,” noted Nadler.

Nadler’s remark gave a way for Twitterians to joke that the suggestion was unrealistic, with some users suggesting that the case would more likely be dropped in “three minutes flat” if the US President is convicted.
