Legal Expert Claims This Impeachment Is Based On Emotions Not Evidence

House Dems brought forth some biased legal experts to help convince Americans that Trump’s actions were impeachable. But among their experts was George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley, who felt that Dems were going after Trump out of anger and lacked the evidence necessary to impeach the president.

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,” Turley said in his opening statement.

“I am concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger,” Turley continued. “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.”

He added: “If we are to impeach a president for only the third time in our history, we will need to rise above this age of rage and genuinely engage in a civil and substantive discussion.”

“Impeachment needs to be based on proof, not assumptions,” Turley said.”

Republicans on the committee echoed Turley’s statements, with House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins, R-Ga., slamming Democrats for wanting to hold the “fastest” impeachment proceeding, while Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said the outcome has been “predetermined.” Jordan blasted the process as “unfair,” and biased against the president.

“The reason it’s been unfair is because the facts aren’t on their side,” Jordan said. “The facts are on the president’s side.”

Jordan added that it is “scary” that the Democrats “have never accepted the will of the American people.”

“This is not healthy,” Jordan said. “The facts are on the president’s side. Not some constitutional hearing at the end of the process when you guys have already decided where you’re going to go.”

Turley isn’t even a Trump fan, but he still is standing up for the law. That’s what they were all supposed to be doing. It appears he was the only impartial legal expert.
