Nadler will miss end of Senate trial to be with ailing wife

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.

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.
