Actor Jon Cryer responded in detail to a Twitter user that took issue with the former “Two and a Half Men” star’s call to impeach President Donald Trump.
Cryer, who currently stars as Lex Luthor on The CW’s “Supergirl,” is not shy about voicing his political opinions on social media. However, after a fiery tweet in which he suggested that impeaching the sitting president not only has merit at this time but is an inevitably, one user clapped back.
“Folks, Trump abuses his power regularly,” Cryer began. “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.

By the time it goes to the Senate it may be impossible for them NOT to remove him.
“I would love to see an actual list. Hurting your feelings isn’t impeachment material,” user John Davis responded.
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.— Jon Cryer (@MrJonCryer) May 25, 2019
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— Jon Cryer (@MrJonCryer) May 25, 2019
Cryer insists that his list is not comprehensive and actually omits the 10 instances of obstruction set forth in the Mueller report.
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.— Jon Cryer (@MrJonCryer) May 25, 2019
