Law Professor On Impeachment: Everyone’s Gone Mad

The Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee called several Constitutional law professors as witnesses, and to no one’s surprise, each found the president had committed impeachable offenses.  Again, to no one’s surprise, the lone witness for the Republicans disputed that claim, but at least he did so with humor.

For the Democrats, Harvard Law School Professor Noah Feldman wrote Trump had abused his office when he asked the Ukrainian President to announce an investigation into a political rival.

Michael Gerhardt of the University of North Carolina law school wrote that evidence shows Tromp has been involved in bribery, abuse of power in soliciting a personal favor from a foreign leader to benefit his political campaign, obstructing Congress and obstructing justice, all of which are impeachable offenses.

Pamela S. Karlan of Stanford University law school also wrote that Trump had abused his power by demanding foreign involvement in the upcoming U.S. election.  Trump’s actions “struck at the very heart of what makes this country the ‘republic’ to which we pledge allegiance.”

For the Republicans, Jonathan Turley, a law professor at Georgetown University, took issue with Trump’s conduct, but said the evidence doesn’t support impeachment.

Turley said:

“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 continued:

“I get it. You are mad. The President is mad. My Democratic friends are mad. My Republican friends are mad. My wife is mad. My kids are mad. Even my dog is mad – and Luna is a golden doodle and they are never mad.”

  1. C’mon. The headline is misleading!!! I watched and the context Mr. Turley was that everyone is mad (angry). The headline you use for this story shows the bias this “Informed American” service has!

  2. Prof. Turley is the only one who told the truth in my opinion. The rest were surely rehearsed with their quick and smearing answers. But even with such educated beings not one of them had anything of substance toward impeachment, just opinions. Well that’s MY opinion.

  3. No one is mad as they are going to be wasting money trying to impeach the President..every thing they are accusing the President of they have done in spades while their district are literally burning down and bums poop in the street ..Please take 2 seats and sit down

  4. Trump never Won the Election, it was given to Him by the Outdated Electoral College. Trump can be impeached for 100’s of Charges, from Being a Racist, Profiteering, Kidnapping of Kids and more Probable of Hiring Hitman to get rid of People that know shit about Him. This is the most Corrupt and lying Administration ever. Trump should Hang for Treason along with about 20 More Republican Bastards.

    • Excuse Me … Everything you just spouted off about describes Hillary Clinton to a Tee. Much to your chagrin, the Electoral College happens to be the Law. The Founders of our Great Country were some of the Wisest Men that our Nation has ever seen. Do you even have ANY knowledge of what the Electoral College is and why it was created? Obviously not. This Nation is still a Republic, NOT a Democracy! It does not operate under the premise that whoever garners the most votes wins the Election. Using your Logic, consider the following scenario. President Trump wins not only the Electoral College in 2020, but also wins the Popular Vote as well. Oh my, what a dilemma that would be for all the Liberals out there, don’t you think? That being said, the 2020 Election in November 2020 just can’t come soon enough! Hope you have an AWESOME day today!

    • Duane Haynes. WERE YOU BORN AN IDIOT OR DID THE DEMOCRATS TEACH YOU HOW AN IDIOT ACTS? YOU’RE DOING A GREAT JOB.NOW, GO BACK TO YOUR PADDED CELL BEFORE YOU TRIP OVER YOUR TONGUE AND BREAK SOMETHING!

  5. YOUR RIGHT- NONE OF THEM READ THE TRANSCRIPTS AND THEIR KISS ASS JUDGES FOR SCHIFF ND PELOSI. SO SAD TO SEE OUR JURISDICTION OF JUDGES THAT ARE DISHONEST – BUT THATS ARE SYSTEM YOU CANT TRUST ANY OF THEM.

  6. funny, I just filled this out stating that judges cant be trusted as none of them read the transcripts or they wouldnt have impeached PRES Trump. what a whitch hunt. It just shows who side these judges are on and its not the people.
