‘That should do it’! House Judiciary Dems release witness list for Wednesday’s ‘all professor’ impeachment hearing
The House Intelligence Committee impeachment inquiry hearings led by Rep. Adam Schiff concluded days before Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean the House Dems are finished trying to make all this backfire on them. Next up are hearings in the House Judiciary Committee chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler. Here’s who we’ll hear from on Wednesday:
WITNESS LIST: The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment.
Wednesday, December 4, 10 am EST.

House Judiciary has released its list of witnesses for the Wednesday hearing, which will be framed as an “academic discussion” of sorts about impeachment. This list reflects that, all professors: Noah Feldman, Pamela Karlan, Michael Gerhardt and Jonathan Turley. pic.twitter.com/a8sU4hURn2

Here are the four witnesses for the House Judiciary Committee's first public impeachment inquiry hearing:
– Noah Feldman, Harvard Law
– Pamela S. Karlan, Stanford Law
– Michael Gerhardt, UNC Law
– Jonathan Turley, GWU Law

At least many of Nadler’s witnesses will have something in common with Schiff’s witnesses, and it’s that none of them have actually witnessed anything.
Let's see how long the networks stick with this one. https://t.co/WNxDWAWLlc

Wow, does everyone realize how tremendously boring that sounds (and will be). 😂 https://t.co/jOIlUOmSJD

Sounds like a snoozefest honestly.

Will it be Must See TV, or Must Flee TV? Time will tell!
This is not going to drive a lot of viewers or change any minds. https://t.co/lRAfezRqj5

I joked last week that Nadler would end up calling a bunch of Democrat lawyers as "witnesses" and that's exactly what he did lol https://t.co/B8EwUOKaGw

You may be the only one.

Interesting list. @JonathanTurley has been a fierce critic of House Democrats' handling of impeachment. And no Watergate relics and dinosaurs, and no Larry Tribe. Maybe they're learning. https://t.co/5pIXTGKOmq

We’ll have to wait and see what theatrics Nadler tries to bring to the hearings.
