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.”

With 14,000 followers, he posts almost daily, giving explanations on the latest scientific research and, in particular, aims to fight misinformation that spreads as fast as the virus itself.

He is among a growing number of doctors, academics and institutions who in recent weeks have adapted and amplified their scientific messaging in hopes of countering what has been termed an infodemic -- a deluge of information, including widespread false claims, which experts say can pose a serious threat to public health.

Published

Days later, he escalated by laying out body bags on the steps of the Florida capitol building in Tallahassee.

He escalated further on Saturday by announcing he would be handing out body bags to Florida beachgoers and started a fundraiser with the funds going to two progressive Political Action Committees.
