The Dubious Criminal Conduct Claims Used to Support Impeaching President Trump

By Adam Dick - November 22, 2019 at 10:10AM


George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley is not impressed with the impeachment case being made against President Donald Trump. In a Wednesday editorial at The Hill, Turley contends that United States House of Representatives members arguing that Trump should be impeached for committing crimes of bribery, extortion, and obstruction are setting up for “the narrowest impeachment in history with the most dubious claims of criminal conduct.”

Turley has some experience with impeachments. As noted in his editorial byline, Turley was the lead counsel, representing Judge G. Thomas Porteous, in the most recent US Senate impeachment trial and testified in the impeachment hearings of President Bill Clinton as a constitutional expert.
