U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said he would go to court on Friday to seek access to grand jury evidence compiled by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 22-month probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Nadler told a news conference that since Justice Department policy does not allow the prosecution of a sitting president, the U.S. House of Representatives was the only institution of government that could hold President Donald Trump accountable for actions outlined in the Mueller report.

"To do so, the House must have access to all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full ... powers, including a constitutional power of the utmost gravity, recommendation of articles of impeachment," Nadler said, reading from the court petition.
