The Mueller Report Was My Tipping Point

I was a Trump transition staffer, and I’ve seen enough. It’s time for impeachment.


J. W. Verret
Professor of law at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School

Let’s start at the end of this story. This weekend, I read Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report twice, and realized that enough was enough—I needed to do something. I’ve worked on every Republican presidential transition team for the past 10 years and recently served as counsel to the Republican-led House Financial Services Committee. My permanent job is as a law professor at the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School, which is not political, but where my colleagues have held many prime spots in Republican administrations.

If you think calling for the impeachment of a sitting Republican president would constitute career suicide for someone like me, you may end up being right. But I did exactly that this weekend, tweeting that it’s time to begin impeachment proceedings.

Let’s go back to the beginning. In August 2016, I interviewed to join the pre-transition team of Donald Trump. Since 2012, every presidential election stands up a pre-transition team for both candidates, so that the real transition will have had a six-month head start when the election is decided. I participated in a similar effort for Mitt Romney, and despite our defeat, it was a thrilling and rewarding experience. I walked into a conference room at Jones Day that Don McGahn had graciously arranged to lend to the folks interviewing for the transition team.

New from me: Kushner downplayed Russia’s interference as a “couple ads” that did no real harm. But he obliged Russian attempts to cultivate a backchannel to the WH—twice.
A new DOJ filing says such backchannels can result in “commensurate harm” to the US.

The third Article of Impeachment against Richard Nixon charged him with failing "without lawful cause or excuse to produce papers and things as directed by duly authorized subpoenas issued by the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives."

Trump is resisting every Congressional request for testimony and documents related to our oversight responsibility.

Like an aspiring autocrat, he doesn’t recognize the co-equal branches of our government.

He has lived his entire life without accountability.

That ends now.

Wow, I just saw a God fearing Christian on here throwing hateful words and memes toward someone that doesn't like Trump.

For the millionth time today.

Increasingly the record shows that the scale of President Trump’s disregard for the Constitution is only matched by the brazenness with which he does so.

The definition of impeachable offenses should not change based on the likelihood of conviction. At least one political party should put the Constitution ahead of political considerations.

Reminder that each of us in Congress takes an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Not to support and defend a political party.

Not to support and defend a president.

I hope my Republican colleagues remember the oath they took.

Trump eats his own. He will attack anyone, including those who have served him slavishly. I cringe to imagine what he says about his own children behind their backs.

Once former Trumpers realize they have been robbed and lied to by the heinous criminal in chief, they may be just the type of strong arms that America will need to drag Trump’s fat butt out of the White House.

So the president threatened armed conflict with our southern neighbor this morning and it will get no attention because everyone knows the president is crazy and no one follows his orders anyway. Seems healthy.

I have the greatest respect for Speaker Pelosi. In discussing Impeachment, she says that Trump isn’t worth it. That may be true, but America and our system of Democracy is. The time has come to pull the trigger on Impeachment.

She’s doing it; the 10 committees are the process. Just because she does not DECLARE it; the televised hearings are the first step.

I will only be tweeting about the necessity of impeachment. That’s it. Because nothing else is as important. We have to control the narrative. Now. Trump knows this. Which is why his obscene lies & tantrums are on the rise. Call your reps today. Demand we #ImpeachTrumpNow.

Harvard prof Laurence Tribe: "There's no doubt that it is overwhelming evidence of an endeavor to undermine an important legal inquiry into what the Russians did to our democracy & what role the Trump people had in it. That's impeachable if anything is."

When you’ve spent a lifetime skirting and breaking the law, you have no problem with dirty street fighting. Donald Trump is challenging US to a street fight. We have to be prepared for a barrage of biting, scratching & a ton of low blows. Democracy is counting on US.
