The allies of President Trump in the Congress and members of his re-election campaign team went to Twitter on Wednesday, Dec. 4, to blast the three liberal law professors as they testified before the House Judiciary Committee over the president impeachment process.
Stephanie Grisham, White House press secretary tweeted: “3 of 4 “experts” in this sham hearing have known biases against @realDonaldTrump. Not only is @POTUS given no rights in this process, the Dems’ “witnesses” made up their minds long before today. The people of this country are being cheated of a Congress who works for them.”

Congrats to the professors who won the Dems’ nationwide talent search for the most elitist, unhinged anti-Trump professors in America. These meltdowns based on triggered emotions, 3% of the facts & ignoring the other 97% of the story is a permanent stain on US history. Good work.

Democrats are holding a national T.V. hearing to ask three liberal law professors why President Trump should be impeached.

A disastrous day for Democrats.
On display for the whole nation to see, leftist professors barely able to contain their rage that @realDonaldTrump is President.
A partisan display of anger over the 2016 election results.
A perfect encapsulation of the whole impeachment farce.

The three law professors said they believed President Trump should be impeached as the result of his controversial dealings with Ukraine.
Feldman, one of the three professors invited by Democrats, told the committee that Trump “abused his office by corruptly soliciting [Ukrainian] President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to announce investigations of his political rivals in order to gain personal advantage, including in the 2020 presidential election.”
However, professor Jonathan Turley, who was invited by Republicans, said to Congress, “If you impeach a president, if you make a high crime & misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power. It’s your abuse of power. You’re doing precisely what you’re criticizing the president for doing.”
“Impeachments have to be based on proof not presumptions.” said Turley. “You can’t say the president is above the law if you then say the crimes you accuse him of really don’t have to be established,” he added.
