MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough urged Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to go back to law school and re-learn the rules of evidence.
The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman dismissed evidence in a whistleblower complaint as “hearsay,” and the “Morning Joe” host said Graham — an attorney — should know better.
“Then you have Lindsey Graham, who of course loved the idea of impeachment in 1999,” Scarborough said, “and now Lindsey Graham talking about hearsay as if he is a kid that hasn’t even taken the LSAT yet, and he is running the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he has no idea how hearsay does or does not play into evidence.”
Scarborough said the whistleblower’s claims are corroborated by call summary records released by the White House, and he urged the Republican senator to examine that evidence, or take remedial law courses.
“No, no, no, Lindsey, you need to read a Hornbook on evidence, you need to go back to the very beginning,” Scarborough said. “Oh, my god. It is staggering that this guy runs the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he knows nothing about hearsay or else he is just acting in such bad faith that he doesn’t even deserve a voting card. This is black-and-white law, and Lindsey is wrong.”
“The only question is whether the guy running the Senate Judiciary Committee knows how ignorant he is,” Scarborough added. “He can talk to any lawyer in South Carolina on either side of the aisle, and they will tell him that he is dead wrong.”

Sorry for the question but why do we need camo in space?
BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women
The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.
The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.
"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
Dershowitz is running a ‘bizarro defense’ of Trump: Harvard Law colleague says ‘Alan is just completely wacko’
Two of the most famous names associated with Harvard Law School had competing appearances on MSNBC on Friday.
It began when Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus, was interviewed MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber about his new role officially representing President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
Dershowitz claimed that neither abuse of power nor obstruction of Congress count as "high crimes" under the constitution.
Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
