Jonathan Turley testimony on Trump impeachment, “this is not how an American president should be impeached.”, “legal case for impeachment…woefully inadequate,… dangerous”

“this is not how an American president should be impeached.”…Impeachment legal expert Jonathan Turley

“Former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as much as admitted the FBI’s intent to set up Mr. Flynn on a criminal false statement charge from the get-go.”…Attorney Sidney Powell November 4, 2019  

“Instead of doing so, the government has continued to defy its
constitutional, ethical and legal obligations to this Court and to the defense, and to hide evidence that it knows exonerates Mr. Flynn. As is the essence of the problem here, instead of protecting its citizens, the “government” is protecting its own criminal conduct and operatives.”…Attorney Sidney Powell October 23, 2019


From the Jonathan Turley testimony before the House impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

“I would like to start, perhaps incongruously, with a statement of three irrelevant
facts. First, I am not a supporter of President Trump. I voted against him in 2016 and I have previously voted for Presidents Clinton and Obama. Second, I have been highly critical of President Trump, his policies, and his rhetoric, in dozens of columns. Third, I have repeatedly criticized his raising of the investigation of the Hunter Biden matter with the Ukrainian president. These points are not meant to curry favor or approval. Rather they are meant to drive home a simple point: one can oppose President Trump’s policies or actions but still conclude that the current legal case for impeachment is not just woefully inadequate, but in some respects, dangerous, as the basis for the impeachment of an American president. To put it simply, I hold no brief for President Trump. My personal and political views of President Trump, however, are irrelevant to my impeachment testimony, as they should be to your impeachment vote. Today, my only
concern is the integrity and coherence of the constitutional standard and process of impeachment. President Trump will not be our last president and what we leave in the wake of this scandal will shape our democracy for generations to come. I am concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger. If the House proceeds solely on the Ukrainian allegations, this impeachment would stand out among modern impeachments as the shortest proceeding, with the thinnest evidentiary record, and the narrowest grounds ever used to impeach a president.7 That does not bode well for future presidents who are working in a country often sharply and,
at times, bitterly divided.”

“A comparison of the current impeachment inquiry with the three prior presidential inquiries puts a few facts into sharp relief. First, this is a case without a clear criminal act and would be the first such case in history if the House proceeds without further evidence. In all three impeachment inquiries, the commission of criminal acts by Johnson, Nixon, and Clinton were clear and established. With Johnson, the House effectively created a trapdoor crime and Johnson knowingly jumped through it. The problem was that the law—the Tenure in Office Act—was presumptively unconstitutional and the impeachment was narrowly built around that dubious criminal act. With Nixon, there were a host of alleged criminal acts and dozens of officials who would be convicted of felonies. With Clinton, there was an act of perjury that even his supporters acknowledged was a felony, leaving them to argue that some felonies “do not
rise to the level” of an impeachment. Despite clear and established allegations of criminal acts committed by the president, narrow impeachments like Johnson and Clinton have fared badly. As will be discussed further below, the recently suggested criminal acts related to the Ukrainian controversy are worse off, being highly questionable from a legal standpoint and far from established from an evidentiary standpoint.”

“No, it is wrong because this is not how an American president should be
impeached. For two years, members of this Committee have declared that criminal and impeachable acts were established for everything from treason to conspiracy to obstruction. However, no action was taken to impeach. Suddenly, just a few weeks ago, the House announced it would begin an impeachment inquiry and push for a final vote in just a matter of weeks. To do so, the House Intelligence Committee declared that it would not subpoena a host of witnesses who have direct knowledge of any quid pro quo. Instead, it will proceed on a record composed of a relatively small number of witnesses with largely second-hand knowledge of the position. The only three direct conversations with President Trump do not contain a statement of a quid pro quo and two expressly
deny such a pre-condition.”

    10-4 on the words of Abe Lincoln. Yesterday Turley told it like it is, and he brought disaster upon the RAVING LUNATICS.

  4. AND HERE……
    …… another twist; if Pelosi is able to achieve the removal of TRUMP, it is very likely that Pence will resign soon thereafter……Pence would be threatened with severe consequences, and I am certain he would tell them to shove their bullsh-t up their a$$es. This means that Pelosi would become POTUS. I am beginning to believe that this is, and has been her intent all along. She knows that Pence would be prevented from becoming POTUS out of a barrage of harassment.
    ………and this morning I am watching a news meeting where McCarthy is talking to a MORONIC PACK OF SNOTNOSED MORONS who call themselves journalists. Most are asking some really stupid questions.
    …………when this happens it will be the day that Alexander Hamilton warned WOULD COME. Very sadly there are millions of nose picking low IQ young people who believe every word that the DEMOCRATS spit out. Our youngsters have been conditioned at school to believe everything they are told by the government. REAL STUPIDITY AT WORK.
    I am becoming convinced that Pelosi has become a really mental case. She has shown a positive thirst for POWER, and it appears that she is angling to become POTUS without being ELECTED to the office. If she continues with her sick, evil plans it generates a real possibility, and maybe even a probability of armed revolt in America.

  5. CW………
    AND NOW……..

    ……..for an ALLEGED college professor to use a CHILD’S NAME in a comparison with a TITLE of nobility is an IGNORANT disregard of the rudiments of our language. REALLY SAD…..especially at HER LEVEL .indicates AN IDIOT IN A PROFESSOR’S CLOTHING.

  8. CW…….
    ………the only point that Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Karlan made yesterday was to confirm her own IGNORANCE, AND HATE.

  9. AND…….
    …….even though Turley is a LIBERAL he had the decency to tell the truth rather than a word twisted oratory. Three cheers for Turley.

  10. AND…………
    two ex Soetoro cabinet members are endorsing the BUTT HEAD HOMOSEXUAL. This is more than likely because they are also FAGGOTS.

  11. • Ukraine Fires Prosecutor Investigating Burisma And Hunter Biden (CDMedia)

    Ukraine has fired the prosecutor investigating cases involving Hunter Biden and Burisma and has transferred responsibility to the Soros-controlled ‘National Anti-Corruption Bureau’ (NABU) for disposal. This is the same NABU led by Artem Sytnyk who was caught on tape bragging about helping the Clinton campaign in its effort to discredit Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Konstantin Kulik was fired from the General Prosecutor’s Office on November 22 due to corruption charges against him. Sources for CD Media describe the firing as being political in nature, as a way to ‘tidy up’ any loose ends regarding Biden and Burisma, to keep the information from the public eye during the ‘impeachment’ campaign in the United States.

    They describe Victor Trepak (New Deputy General Prosecutor), Deputy Prosecutor General Vitaly Kasko, and Sytnyk as being under the control of the George Soros/Deep State infrastructure in-country. Trepak was involved in the infamous ‘black ledger’ in the Manafort affair, which is now considered to be fake. The State Bureau of Investigation may be headed by Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Trepak it was reported by “Ukrainian Truth” with reference to sources, reported Ukrainian news outlet “Soros and the Democrats appointed their agents of influence to the General Prosecutor’s Office (Kasko and Trepak). They put Sytnyk in NABU and Kholodnitsky in SAP (Special Prosecutor) in order to destroy the evidence of corruption of the Democrats in Ukraine and to continue the process of the country’s rape with impunity. They are corruption. If they put Trepak, the author of the ‘black ledger’, as the head of the State Bureau of Investigation, then the process of covering up their crimes will be completed,” declared a confidential intelligence source in Ukraine.


    The never trumpers in the ukraine us embassy and that tranny former fbi agent who calls himself karen greenaway are still working to cover up for the bidens.

    This is all beyond the pale. It’s getting worse and worse.
    We are living in the time when the emperor has no clothes.

    And of course lindsey graham and mitch mcconnell do not one thing about it.

  12. How corrupt the dems are in Ukraine:

    After firing the prosecutor in Ukraine looking into the Bidens’ corruption, the Soros entity NABU had a whistleblower arrested in Germany who was coming to the US to testify about the Bidens’ corruption.

    Everything!! is completely out of control. It’s evil and it’s corrupt and it’s being flaunted right in front of our faces.

    How much longer can this go on before it turns violent.
