They want a singular repetitive accusation against the president
WASHINGTON D.C. (Texas Insider Report) Its worth pointing out as the public watches what just happened (Wednesday) they would say: Wait a minute there was another constitutional scholar there also who disagrees but he never got a question said Major Garrett CBS News White House correspondent during a CBS Special Report yesterday noting that House Democrats were not exhibiting a minimum standard of fairness with their failure to question a law school professor summoned for the impeachment hearings.
Democrats should be asking the scholar George Washington Universitys Jonathan Turley about his opposition to impeachment so there could be a competing set of opinions Garrett said.
I think for Trump supporters they will look at it and say that doesnt seem fair and it reinforces the presidents argument whether you think his conduct was proper or improper that this is not being done on a basis that achieves a modicum or a minimum standard of fairness said Garrett.
The Democrats reluctance to even bring that into the conversation I know Trump supporters will say See theyre not even interested in an opposing point of view. They want a singular repetitive accusation against the president that everything has been proven and its all impeachable he said.
Turley (at far right) who noted that he was not a supporter of President Trump and had in fact voted against him in the 2016 election appeared at the request of House Republicans and testified he was concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and abundance of anger.
Were all mad and where has it taken us?
Will a slipshod impeachment make us less mad?
Or will it only give an invitation for the madness to follow in every future administration? Turley asked.
This is not how you impeach an American president.
The three other constitutional scholars summoned by Democrats who called for Trump to be impeached had donated thousands of dollars to either both of or one of the Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama for President Campaigns and have previously made statements disparaging President Trump or calling for his impeachment dating back to early 2017.
