WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) joined Fox News Chanel’s Hannity to discuss Democrats’ useless 8.5 hour lecture from liberal anti-Trump law professors, which failed yet again to make their case for impeachment. Whip Scalise blasted Democrats for wasting time on liberal professors who have no firsthand knowledge of this case instead of conducting the American people’s business. Every minute spent in impeachment hearings is a minute we could have spent fixing trade deals, lowering prescription drug prices, addressing the security and humanitarian crisis on the southern border, and funding our military. It’s a shame and this process is a sham.
“[Democrats] really have no idea where they want to go with [impeachment] because they thought it was going to be the Mueller report that was going to give them impeachable charges that they can go and [bring forward]. And there’s nothing this President’s done wrong ultimately at the end of the day. You know, Jim Jordan says it best with the four facts – the bottom line is President Zelensky and President Trump were the only two people participating in the phone call and neither of them had a problem with the call. Zelensky was thanking President Trump for helping him, for selling him the Javelin missiles so he can stand up to Russia, something President Obama and Joe Biden wouldn’t do. No one in the media wants to ask that.
“Every witness [Democrats] bring forward, you know Matt Gaetz did it really well today where he said ‘can any one of you raise your hand if you’ve seen anything wrong?’ Not any of the witnesses from [the House Intelligence Committee] or here today in [the House Judiciary Committee], no witness can tell you anything that the President did illegal. The disdain that these law professors had for Donald Trump and the fact that he got elected in 2016 was clear. I thought it was disgraceful what Stanford Law Professor Karlan, or whatever she’s a professor of, she owes an apology, [an] unequivocal apology. I don’t know if she supports bullying, but to pick on a minor child to try to make yourself look cute in front of your colleagues or something, it’s disgraceful, and I hope Stanford doesn’t stand for that because that’s what they had to do today.”
