Jonathan Turley attacked over impeachment testimony, “threatening messages and demands that I be fired”, “not proven abuse of power”, “we are lowering impeachment standards”

“a judge reaffirmed that Clinton committed perjury, a crime for which thousands of other citizens have been jailed. Yet the calls for showing that “no one is above the law” went silent with Clinton.”…Jonathan Turley

“it would be ‘very dangerous’ to the balance of powers not to hold Obama accountable for assuming powers ‘very similar’ to the ‘right of the king’ to essentially stand above the law.”…Jonathan Turley

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

 

From The Hill.

“Democrats offering passion over proof in Trump impeachment”

“In my testimony Wednesday, I lamented that, as in the impeachment of President Clinton from 1998 to 1999, there is an intense “rancor and rage” and “stifling intolerance” that blinds people to opposing views. My call for greater civility and dialogue may have been the least successful argument I made to the committee. Before I finished my testimony, my home and office were inundated with threatening messages and demands that I be fired from George Washington University for arguing that, while a case for impeachment can be made, it has not been made on this record.

Some of the most heated attacks came from Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee.”

“Notably, neither Swalwell nor Nadler allowed me to respond to those or any other attacks. It was then picked up eagerly by others, despite being a demonstrably false narrative.”

“That is precisely what I have said regarding Trump. You just need to prove abuse of power. My objection is not that you cannot impeach Trump for abuse of power but that this record is comparably thin compared to past impeachments and contains conflicts, contradictions, and gaps including various witnesses not subpoenaed. I suggested that Democrats drop the arbitrary schedule of a vote by the end of December and complete their case and this record before voting on any articles of impeachment. In my view, they have not proven abuse of power in this incomplete record.”

“As I said 21 years ago, a president can still be impeached for abuse of power without a crime, and that includes Trump. But that makes it more important to complete and strengthen the record of such an offense, as well as other possible offenses. I remain concerned that we are lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger. Trump will not be our last president. What we leave in the wake of this scandal will shape our democracy for generations to come. These “agitated passions” will not be a substitute for proof in an impeachment. We currently have too much of the former and too little of the latter.”

  2. The AP is reporting that the suspect in Friday’s shooting at a Navy base in Pensacola, Fla. is a Saudi Arabian national. He was attending aviation school in the US, which should raise eyebrows: The last group of Saudi nationals who sought flight lessons in the US pulled off 9/11.

    ……….10-4 on the GOATHERDER POS. Perhaps he is related to one of the 9-11 bastards. Why don’t we don’t see any of the LIBERAL DEMOCRATS offering any observations.? Could it be that they really DON’T GIVE A DAMN?

  4. SPECIAL TO WHITEHOUSE……….
    …………if anyone of authority is reading this……..I WANT THE WHITEHOUSE TO KNOW THAT AT LEAST ONE PERSON IS PRAYING THAT YOU WILL TELL THE POS LIBERALS TO SHOVE THEIR CRAP UP THEIR BACKSIDES…….THEN INVITE THEM TO A SENATE TRIAL !!!!

  5. CW……..
    ……….here is a thought;……why not invite California, Oregon, Washington State, and New York state to secede from the Union. Let them become countries like they want……..then we sit back and watch these alleged countries CRUMBLE under the weight of all the FREELOADERS, and MORONIC LEADERSHIP. In addition the taxpayers of America would no longer have to contribute to the FREELOADERS in the seceded states.with food stamps, etc. People like De Blasio, Newsom, and the FREELOADERS would end up having to WORK for a living………..that is if they could find a job to begin with. It wouldn’t be long until the people in those (COUNTRIES) would come beating on the door of America begging to be let back into the Union. That is when we tell them to take a LONG WALK ON A SHORT PIER.!!!!

  6. CW………
    ………..the raging, foaming at the mouth DEMOCRATS ARE moving forward with their IRRATIONAL IMPEACHMENT. Their LUNATIC act will die a suitable death in the SENATE. Soon thereafter Trump will be RE ELECTED to OFFICE. In reality the IMPEACHMENT is an exercise of complete IDIOCY, and in 2020 it will bite the DEMOCRATS on their hemorrhoids severely. Still the DEMOCRATS are promising they will continue the onslaught for the entire term of his next term should he be RE ELECTED.

  7. AND THIS EVENING………..
    ………for the FIRST TIME I saw DERSHOWITZ mentioned in association with Jeffrey Epstein. I have yet to find how they were connected.

  8. His attorney I believe.

    It’s sad to say………
    We have the Highest Gas Prices in the country. The most homeless, most wild fires, most tainted lettuce and Sanctuary Cities and oops almost forgot, illegals.
    Guess I’ll get another bowl of strawberries.

    ……….given we now have an alleged connection of DERSHOWITZ with Epstein, and so the notion grows that there may be a LOT of people of DERSHOWITZ caliber who were a wee bit more than casual acquaintances of the pervert. They may even have been CUSTOMERS. We are now in the territory of some very esteemed people within our alleged society. For people of high intelligence to allow themselves to sink to less than animals is an alarming thought. Apparently a high IQ makes no difference when these people are attracted to pedophile behavior. The only remaining barrier is Christianity. Sadly within alleged Christianity lies homosexual clergymen………..so what is the defense against the obvious mental deterioration of many Americans. To me it appears that Americans are suffering from some extremely virile form of INSANITY which conceivably could ultimately lead to the destruction of humanity itself. A classic example of this is the now near epidemic we have of HIV, and full blown AIDS. In the last 10 years the HIV infections are now almost as prolific in WOMEN as in men. Anti biotics goes only so far…………then comes a failure of anti biotics because the disease has become IMMUNE to such treatment. Sadly the homosexuals believe that it will never happen to them. Yet it is they who end up writhing in agony as they lay upon their stinking death beds as they suffer the results of their favorite activity………..”BACK DOOR BINGO.”

    ………our South Bend BUTTHEAD is a so called GAY person. He says he is a Christian. You CANNOT be a Christian when you DEFY THE CREATOR. Sodom, and Gomorrah are examples of what happens when people defy the word of God.

  12. SLICK WILLY………..
    …………says he was aboard Jeff’s plane only 6 times……..yet we recently learned that the aircraft flight log says he was aboard 26 times. Maybe that is why Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Piggy sent 8.1 billion dollars to an un-extraditable country. She, and Slick Willy might have to make a very hasty exit from America.
