Scalia Law School professor and lifelong Republican says it’s time to impeach Trump

Published

on

A life-long Republican and professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School believes it is time for Congress to impeach President Donald Trump.

J.W. Verret said he came to the conclusion after reading through special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report, which was released to the public last week.

“I don’t say this lightly, as a lifelong Republican, former [Republican] Hill staffer, and someone who has worked on every [Republican] campaign and pre-transition team for the last ten years. There is enough here to begin impeachment proceedings,” he wrote on Twitter over the weekend.

President Donald Trump on Monday insisted that he could not be impeached because the Mueller report did not find evidence of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

But Verret believes that the Mueller report provides “more than enough evidence” to begin impeachment proceedings.

Responding to Trump, the professor said: “The relevant precedent is the Clinton impeachment. By that standard a number of obstruction counts are appropriate in an impeachment.”

Writing in the Washington Post, columnist Greg Sargent lays out why "send her back" makes Republicans so nervous, when they seem perfectly fine with radical immigration policies like zero-tolerance and the separation of kids from their parents, which are applied to non-white asylum seekers.
