Donald Trump Cited Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson as 'Legal Scholars' Who Oppose Impeachment

The House Intelligence Committee submitted to the House Judiciary Committee its 300 page report of information gleaned from fact witnesses so far in the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

In addition to reiterating the testimony of several witnesses regarding Trump's corrupt dealings with Ukraine, the report also highlighted call records between numerous key players in the Ukraine scandal.


Despite impeachment support rising amidst a wealth of revelations throughout the course of the Intelligence Committee hearings, President Donald Trump—in London for the NATO Summit—dismissed the report that developed from them.

Watch below.

Trump cited his favorite Fox News opinion hosts—Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Tucker Carlson—as his sources for evaluations of the report, saying:

"I saw [the report] and it's a joke. Everybody is saying it. And I watched reviews. I watched Sean Hannity, I watched Laura Ingraham, I watched Tucker Carlson, I watched a lot of other legal scholars, frankly."

Hannity, a peddler of the conspiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election, said the report was "chock full of nothing but conspiracy theories." Ingraham called it a "dud." Tucker Carlson has previously stated he's rooting for Russia's defeat against Ukraine's democracy.

None of the three have credibility as legal scholars. What's more, due to the time difference in London, the President would have to have been watching their shows overnight.

But whatever makes Trump feel better, right?







Impeachment hearings against Trump continue in the House Judiciary Committee this week.
