  1. 1. Should Donald Trump be impeached for obstruction of justice?

I just turned this on, Professor Karlan is doing well.  The look on Collin's face when it was apparent she was not going to take his nonsense was priceless.

one version of the american dream for me is to see all elected gopers and the entire trump party devoting 100% of everything they are to providing the most personal, basic, and direct support possible to the american hog farmer

I would like them to ask him questions. Get him talking about what constitutes an impeachable offense.

Meh. I feel like Turley will get a lot of questioning from GOP counsel and Dem Reps. There's like 41 members of the Judiciary. GOP counsel will probably call on Turley like 95% of the time.

I agree. I think the Dems will ultimately ask him questions. I'd love to see the reaction of Turley's colleagues to his testimony.

They should ask him to describe why he so vigorously supported Bill Clinton's impeachment, stating:

 

Quote

In my view, President Clinton’s conduct demands an open and deliberative review under the conditions created for that purpose by the Framers. By his own admission, President Clinton has engaged in reprehensible conduct in office. Allegations of criminal acts in office by a president are perhaps the greatest threat to the perceived legitimacy of a government. When there is compelling evidence of criminal acts in the Chief Executive, an entire system of laws is undermined and demands some form corrective action. Justice Brandeis stressed this danger in Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 485 (1928) (quoted in Elkins v. United States, 364 U.S. 206, 223 (1960), when he warned:

 

In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a lawbreaker; it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.

 

The allegations against President Clinton go to the very heart of the legitimacy of his office and the integrity of the political system. As an individual, a president may seek spiritual redemption in the company of friends and family. Constitutional redemption, however, is found only in the company of representatives of all three branches in the well of the Senate. It is there that legitimacy, once recklessly lost, can be regained by a president.

 

But now opposes the same standard.

The irony of dip**** Collins complaining that information is being withhold is totally lost on him.

I'm going to be pissed if none of the Dems use exactly what you have here and force him to explain it. It would be glorious if it happens.

Not sure the argument Turley is trying to make when he says you can't impeach based on "hypothetical bribery?"  It wasn't hypothetical.  It was "do this or you don't get that" plain and simple.

Turley's argument is so full of crap. I disagree with the Supreme Court's position in the Nixon obstruction case therefore let's pretend the ruling didn't happen.

All his arguments are weak.
