Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and one of the Democratic managers of the Senate’s trial of President Trump, tweeted Friday that he will miss the conclusion of the proceedings in order to be with his ailing wife, Joyce Miller.
I am sorry to not be able to stay in Washington for the conclusion of the Senate impeachment trial but I need to be home with my wife at this time. We have many decisions to make as a family. I have every faith in my colleagues and hope the Senate will do what is right.— (((Rep. Nadler))) (@RepJerryNadler) January 31, 2020
Miller, 72, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December. Nadler, who is Jewish, said Sunday that he would be missing “some” of the trial and remain in New York “to meet with doctors, determine a path forward, and begin her treatment.” He was absent on Monday, as well as for a day of the House’s impeachment inquiry in December.
