Trump would become a king if impeachment fails, scholar warns https://t.co/qcrZwwpb17

And that came courtesy of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill law professor Michael Gerhardt. It was one of the many “WTF” moments from Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry hearing.
Apparently "scholar" has lost all meaning and is simply short-hand for insane "partisan hack" https://t.co/yxnzZBuPAI

There were three partisan hack “witnesses” at Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, zero of which actually witnessed anything.

What in the world could be next?
Experts warn that 38% of all kittens will die unless Trump is impeached. https://t.co/GOo5au2laK

Maybe the "scholar" needs to see a "professional" about his "problem".

There definitely was a lot of TDS in the room at Wednesday’s hearing.
