    only read up on his comments but tend to agree that the Dems are moving too fast and seems rushed. based on my skimming of his 53 page statement I am sensing that he thinks impeachment is possible but more information and proof is needed.

    Because the courts still haven't decided on a few cases related to impeachment doesn't mean it is obstruction (IMO the intent is there but tough to prove).

    I read that he is saying to be detailed and get the proof no matter how long it takes.

    Come on now, the quid pro quo alone is enough to impeach.

    Turley - We need more time to investigate

    Turley - I have reviewed the evidence and there is no crime.

    Which is it.

    he is saying that they should go through the courts if they want the President to comply, he is not obstructing if they havent done that

    basically Turley is the non partisan in the room...its so telling that the networks cut off before he was allowed to speak..why is that

    He's not even non partisan. He was very clear he never voted for Trump and is a lifelong Democrat.

    As much as I want Trump gone, I agree with Turley to a point. I don't see the smoking gun yet. I want the individuals who are tied up in the courts to testify. I want the tax records situation settled. These are all pieces needed if you want to impeach. if the facts don't line up then you can't.

    What put Nixon down was the tapes. If there are recordings of Trump conversations where he is saying stuff that will get him impeached then he will be done. The transcripts and 2nd hand accounts don't seem enough right now.

    Didn't you hear, there are all these incriminating tapes of him telling Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who is investigating his son's company or they aren't getting $1B in aid? He's even on video. Oh wait, wrong guy.

    It's a deep state conspiracy led by the non-Trumpers in the Fake News.

    As soon as he put those phony stacks of papers on a table and stated he was divesting himself from all Trump businesses and then refused to release his taxes was an impeachable offense.

    We are way past whether there are grounds for impeachment.

    Another pretzel. I know Turley is partisan because in an article regarding impeaching Obama in 2014 he states, “But Congress’s exclusive power to impeach does not license it to abuse that power, any more than the Supreme Court’s final say on laws gives it license to deliver arbitrary rulings.”

    To help break it down for you, today he says that impeachment should go through the courts (which is complete BS) but in 2014, he rightfully states Congress has EXCLUSIVE POWER. Twist that one Karen.

    “While there’s a high bar for what constitutes grounds for impeachment, an offense does not have to be indictable. Serious misconduct or a violation of public trust is enough.”

    How come Libs can never square the Biden circle here? Outside of ignoring it, do they even have a response?

    "Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country."

    Great quote. Thanks for sharing. But I believe it was from Pelosi, not Melanie.

    And she's right. Bribery, extortion, obstruction and witness intimidation are compelling and overwhelming.

    And bipartisan- we thank the only actual conservative in the House, Justin Amash, for his bigly support.

    And true as well the country isn't divided. More than half back impeachment. 70% say Deranged Don engaged in wrongdoing.

    Now, any comment on Lindsay's impeachment beliefs, or did you just want to tell how us how genius Pelosi is, which we knew?

    The Dems are moving fast because they know impeachment is DOA in the Senate and is losing public support with independent voters. They have to vote on it due to their wacko base, but the longer it goes on, the better for Trump.

    and from his opening comments.. he talks of the history of impeachments even in England and in Colonial times... he says the Founding Fathers knew of the hyper partisan political impeachments and took steps to limit impeachment to actual crimes...

    Best line of the day:

    An Example of Trump as King versus Trump as President.

    "Trump can name his son Baron, but he can't appoint his son to be a baron."

    The board's biggest beta snowflake started a thread on it and he's triggered AF. But it will pale to the day Horowitz destroys him.

    If trump wasn’t obstructing, then there would be more time allowed to interview first hand witnesses. They have interviewed everyone they can and it’s clear as day what our criminal president was doing.
