John Cusack calls for Trump’s impeachment in Capitol Hill visit

Twitter

SPOTTED: Actor John Cusack — sans any boombox — making the rounds as he met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to push for President Trump’s impeachment on Thursday.

The “Say Anything” star was eyed by reporters in between chats with several lawmakers, including Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).

{mosads}”Rep. Khanna is friends with John. He came by to catch up. [The] two share common views on progressive values and chatted about the work of Arundhati Roy,” a spokeswoman said.

Reps for Nadler didn’t get back to us about Cusack’s visit.

But the entertainer — a vocal critic of Trump who’s called him “dangerous” and “unhinged” — documented much of his day on the Hill, including what he described as an elevator ride with some proponents of the commander in chief.

Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pa.) shared a snapshot of her with the 52-year-old performer as House Democrats held a marathon reading of special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report in a Capitol hearing room.

The actor was in town for a screening Thursday night of “High Fidelity” at the Warner Theatre in downtown Washington.
