The start of the dispute between President Donald Trump and Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler goes back decades.
It involved a disagreement in the plans of an expensive real estate development in New York.
Now Nadler may have competition from another Trump.
The word is that Donald Trump Jr may challenge Jerry Nadler for his job in Congress.
Nadler has been a key figure in the impeachment of President Trump.
More from The Buffalo Chronicle:
He represents New York’s 12th congressional district, comprising the West Side of Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn.
The district has a Democrat enrollment advantage of 23 points, according to the Cook Political Index (CPI).

But for New York State, that’s a middle-of-the-pack district — there are nine districts in the State that are even more strongly Democrat-leaning.
“Nadler is the quintessential career politician and has exposed himself as a petulant political hack, not a statesman,” one longtime New York County Republican committeeman explains.
“If Don Jr. takes socially liberal and fiscally moderate policy positions, and makes the election about getting big infrastructure projects done for New York City, then he can make the race competitive.”
It was Nadler who received orders from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to move forward with impeachment articles against President Trump due to his “failure to faithfully execute the law.”
In clear language, Pelosi ordered House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to move forward with filing these articles to formally charge the president with committing a crime.
“The president leaves us no choice but to act because he is trying to corrupt once again, the election for his own personal benefit,” Pelosi said per the Washington Examiner.
“Today I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment.”
The California Democrat cited the constitutional scholars who appeared before the House Judiciary Committee yesterday as an additional reason to move forward with the articles.
“The facts are uncontested. The president abused his power for his own personal and political benefit at the expense of our national security by withholding military aid in a crucial Oval Office meeting for an announcement of an investigation into his political rival,” Pelosi said.
