Actor and comedian Jon Cryer has been very verbal about his dislike for Donald Trump. Cryer is anything, but shy about using social media to voice his political opinions.
Recently he posted a fiery tweet calling for Trump’s impeachment. Cryer posted, “Folks, Trump abuses his power regularly. He has committed more impeachable offenses SINCE THE MUELLER REPORT. While impeachment hearings are being held HE WILL COMMIT MORE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES. By the time it goes to the Senate, it may be impossible for them NOT to remove him.”
Trump supporter John Davis responded to the tweet with “I would love to see an actual list. Hurting your feelings isn’t impeachment material.”
Cryer quickly responded with “Hi John, Coming right up! These are just a few off the top of my head.”
From there the star, who will forever be known and loved as Duckie from “Pretty in Pink,” outlined offenses that he states Trump committed while in office and even took the time to detail those offenses.
“First of all, remember that impeachment is a political process, not a criminal one. Impeachable offenses are not necessarily criminal offenses but abuses of presidential power. Abuses that contradict his oath to uphold the constitution.”
2-” Yesterday it was reported that the president inserted himself in the US Army Corps of Engineers bidding process on the border wall to favor a company that is headed by a large GOP donor. This is a subversion of the process & a corrupt abuse of power & an impeachable offense.”
3- “In April, two outlets confirmed Trump had urged a senior DHS official to ignore a judge’s order & then mentioned his pardon for Judge Arpaio, implying he’d provide a presidential pardon if the official faced legal consequences. This is an abuse of power & an impeachable offense.”
4- “Just days ago, The White House ordered Don Mcgahn, former WH counsel to refuse a congressional subpoena. Mcgahn is currently a private citizen and Trump has no legal authority to withhold Mcgahn’s presence. This is obstruction of justice and an impeachable offense.”
5- “In January, just before the testimony of Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, Trump tweeted that Cohen’s Father-in-law should be investigated. This was clearly a ham-fisted attempt to intimidate Cohen from testifying. This is obstruction of justice and it is an impeachable offense.”
The actor then set his sights on Trump’s hotel and travel.
6- “Trump’s Washington hotel is a massive conflict of interest as foreign countries, businesses and lobbyists book extensively while they have business before the president. This is a violation of the emoluments clause of the constitution and an impeachable offense.”
7- “Every time Trump visits one of his own properties, taxpayer money is being paid directly to him for security, lodging, expenses, etc. He also benefits greatly as these trips promote his properties. This is a violation of the domestic emoluments clause & a corrupt abuse of power.”
Cryer wrapped up his post by stating that, This list is by no means comprehensive and it omits the 10 incidents of obstruction of justice that are in the Mueller report. Those same incidents that caused over 1000 former federal prosecutors to sign a statement that Trump would be indicted if he were a private citizen.”
Davis later posted that he disagreed with Cryer’s list, but noted that he respected the fact that he responded to his request.
