Nadler’s report comes as some Repubblicani, including high-profile Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., support impeachment.

Some have pointed out that Nadler had a very different reaction to plotting against the U.S. Capitol when he pushed for a pardon for former Weather Underground member Susan Rosenberg. Nel 1988, Rosenberg was charged for her role in the 1983 Senate bombing that killed no one but caused roughly $ 250,000 in damage (the charges were later dropped), secondo Politico.
