Even the fox guys think Turley got it wrong...

In his opening statement and throughout his early testimony, Turley—a George Washington University law professor—pointed the finger at House Democrats and attempted to turn the tables on their allegations President Donald Trump abused his power and obstructed justice.

“Then you have an obstruction case, because a court issues an order, and unless they stay that order by a higher court, you have obstruction,” Turley declared. “But I can’t emphasize this enough and I’ll say it just one more time, if you impeach a president, if you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power. It’s your abuse of power. You’re doing precisely what you’re criticizing the president for doing.”

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, who has repeatedly insisted that Trump committed impeachable offenses, pushed back on Turley’s analysis.

“Where I disagree with my dear friend—I’ve worked with him and testified alongside him—Jon Turley on the significance of obstruction of justice, he is forgetting that the House has the sole—S-O-L-E—power of impeachment,” Napolitano proclaimed. “It does not need to go to a court for approval.”

“It doesn’t need to go to court to get the subpoenas enforced,” he added. “When the president receives a subpoena, or in this case Mick Mulvaney, Mike Pompeo receive a subpoena, and they throw it in a drawer. They do not comply or challenge because the president told them to; that is the act of obstruction.”

Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy, a former U.S attorney who has been a vocal critic of impeachment, meanwhile, backed up Napolitano’s remarks.

“I happen to agree with the judge,” McCarthy noted. “I do not think that to the extent that Jon Turley is taking the position that you either have to or should go to the court if you are Congress to enforce your subpoenas, I think that is simply wrong.”

“I don’t think the framers would have thought that the Article I branch needed the assistance of the Article III branch to impeach an officer of the Article II branch,” the National Review columnist continued. “I just don’t think that it’s conceivable.”

I thought Turley was pretty great.

But I've admired Turley ever since he get the the DOD/USAF to admit that Area 51 did indeed exist.

His mad riff was classic and pretty much spot on.   But even Captain Obvious understands the 1000 plus days of Trump  :curse: rage.

Turley was involved in suing the USAF/DOD on behalf of some Area 51 workers who got cancer from open burning of toxic waste.

FFS weirdos.

I thought Turley was pretty great.

You found his arguments to be convincing, or enjoyed his contrarian position?

I enjoyed his opinions, all of the panel offering their opinions and personal views on this matter were very enjoyable to listen to, in fact the many "witnesses" offering their personal viewpoints, feelings, and opinions on what transpired or what they personally believed transpired were  quite enjoyable.

Most enjoyable of all were Little Jerry Nadler and Adam "spies on Congress" Schiff.

Am I the only one who never hears actual people out in the wild discussing impeachment? Seems like I've been overserved this particular tonic for months, and yet I never hear folks out in the world discussing it. The majority of Americans (who are too busy working jobs that don't involve being on the internet all day) are like (a) of course he did that, and (b) my conscience is not shocked, because (c) he does selfish crap all the time and still got elected.

The Senate will not remove. That said, I think it would be best for the House to impeach, just for precedential value.

It's dumb that all of this hearing crap happens during the day during the work week. If they really wanted to change minds, they'd do it uncut in primetime or on the weekends. The way it is now, most folks just tune into their drug of choice in the evening and get the special blend they crave.
