The Hollywood left called on Democrats in Congress to impeach President Donald Trump after former special counsel Robert Mueller testified before Congress on Wednesday.
It is imperative: Congress must start an Impeachment Inquiry. This President colluded with a foreign enemy power to undermine our Democracy,” said director Rob Reiner, who regularly demands Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump. “Then Obstructed Justice to cover that up. Period. Speaker Pelosi, with all due respect, NO MORE FUCKING AROUND!”

“37 indictments, 7 convictions, 127 secret meetings with Russian agents and so many hours of testimony… it’s time for an #ImpeachmentInquiryNow!” said Will & Grace star Debra Messing.

Wednesday saw the former FBI director testify for hours before the House Judiciary Committee as well as the House Oversight Committee.
There was near-universal agreement among many media members and Democrat operatives that in his testimony Mueller looked “frail” and not “sharp.”
Michael Moore shared the same sentiment, slamming Democrats for putting “their faith in the esteemed Robert Mueller” to be able to set the stage for impeaching President Trump.
“A frail old man, unable to remember things, stumbling, refusing to answer basic questions.,” Michael Moore’s said. “I said it in 2017 and Mueller confirmed it today — All you pundits and moderates and lame Dems who told the public to put their faith in the esteemed Robert Mueller — just STFU from now on.”
President Trump agreed with Moore, and went so far as to thank the Democrats for bringing Mueller up to testify.
Hollywood leftists were chiming in all day, some praying various Democrats and others pouncing on parts of the testimony they believe damaging to Trump.

IMPEACH HIM DAMN IT – SOMEONE SAY IT

The Republicans are getting dizzy now.
Trump is cooking, slowly. By next fall, he’ll be fully cooked.

The Republican excoriation of Robert Mueller, who has been over backward to be fair-minded and thorough, is one large reason why so many fundamentally decent men and women now eschew public service.

C’mon, fellow Americans! Trump can be beaten. Just because he outwitted the DNC once- & is in the process of trying to do it again- doesn’t mean squat if we, the majority, rise up, get active & inspire a nation to make America the America we want it to be. We know how to do this!

Lieu: “The reason you did not indict Donald Trump was because of OLC opinion stating that you could not indict a sitting president, is that correct?”

Mueller served as a Marine Corps officer during Vietnam & received a Bronze Star for heroism. He was appointed to positions by Bush, Clinton, Bush & Obama. And he was the Director of the FBI.
It’s infuriating Republican members of Congress act rudely to him. #MuellerHearing

Three key takeaways:
1) Trump was not exonerated by the Mueller Report.
2) Mueller would have indicted Trump were it not for the opinion of the Office of Legal Counsel that a sitting president cannot be indicted.
3) Mueller said Trump could be indicted after leaving office.
