Scarborough: Trump Advised To Defy Judges On Immigration, Will Lead To Impeachment

If President Trump violates the orders of two federal courts by implementing his immigration policies, he could be booted out of office as soon as this summer, according to Joe Scarborough.

The host of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC issued the warning Monday morning, after White House Policy Adviser Stephen Miller suggested that the administration might ignore judges who have blocked Trump’s executive action calling for a temporarily ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations. The Jan. 27 presidential order also called for temporarily halting the refugee-resettlement program.

Newsmax reported that Miller, in several television interviews last weekend, claimed U.S. District Court and Appeals Court judges in Seattle and San Francisco assumed “power for themselves that belong squarely” with the president. The adviser proclaimed on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” that the “judiciary is not supreme” and that “the end result of this is that our opponent, the media, and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned; and the bottom line is the president's powers in this area represent the apex of executive authority.”

Scarborough, a former Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives, responded: “I’m just telling you right now, Monday, Feb. 13, 2017, if that sort of thinking were enacted into policy, we would have impeachment proceedings within the next six months. Donald Trump would be impeached if they did not adhere to what the courts were saying.”

Miller is “just dumb,” according to Scarborough, who added: “Maybe he is ignorant and maybe I shouldn't be so tough on him. That is the worst performance of anybody. That made Susan Rice, the Sunday after Benghazi, look smooth. That was horrendous and an embarrassment. … You really need to go back and read the Constitution and, seriously, the White House has got to stop embarrassing themselves by putting this guy up.”

Trump praised his adviser, tweeting: “Congratulations Stephen Miller on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!”
