Self-proclaimed liberal law professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University says that Democrats are shredding the constitution in trying to impeach President Trump over-exercising his right of free speech.

Turley points out that if you make his remarks impeachable, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris and Ayanna Pressley.

Turley wrote:

“Democrats are pushing this dangerously vague standard while objecting to their own remarks given new meaning from critics. Conservatives have pointed to Maxine Waters asking her supporters to confront Republicans in restaurants, while Ayanna Pressley insisted amidst the violent marches last year that ‘there needs to be unrest in the streets,’ and Kamala Harris said ‘protesters should not let up’ even as some of those marches turned violent,” Turley wrote. “They can legitimately argue their rhetoric was not meant to be a call for violence, but this standard is filled with subjectivity.”

I can see other problems.

If the House is held by the opposition party from the Oval Office, they can impeach that person weekly or monthly.

It is very likely that Republicans will regain the majority in the House in the 2022 midterm elections.

They could immediately open an investigation into Hunter Biden and use that for impeaching Biden.

Turley explained in an essay for The Hill:

The author Franz Kafka once wrote, “My guiding principle is this. Guilt is never to be doubted.” Democrats suddenly appear close to adopting that standard into the Constitution as they prepare for a second impeachment of President Trump.

With seeking his removal for incitement, Democrats would gut not only the impeachment standard but also free speech, all in a mad rush to remove Trump just days before his term ends.

Democrats are seeking to remove Trump on the basis of his remarks to supporters before the rioting at the Capitol. Like others, I condemned those remarks as he gave them, calling them reckless and wrong.

I also opposed the challenges to electoral votes in Congress. But his address does not meet the definition for incitement under the criminal code. It would be viewed as protected speech by the Supreme Court.

Turley says the constitution would be harmed if Democrats insist on impeaching President Trump for his statement that constitutes free speech. He never told anyone to riot or damage property.

  • The current Democrats are the biggest hypocrites I have ever seen. After what they condoned this year, the Anarchy in the streets, now they want to impeach him for telling people to march peacefully and make your voices be heard. They are once again using impeachment for self serving reasons and they damn well know it.

    • The Democrats are the biggest liars in the world along with the mainstream media! God help all of us that believe in true freedom of speech. The only chance is, the people of America that believe in freedom and they are the Republicans, I hope they don’t give up to show the lefties whats what!!!!

      GOD BLESS THE PEOPLE WHOM BELIEVE IN FREEDOM AND AMERICA. DONALD TRUMP IS ONE OF THE BEST PRESIDENT THAT AMERICA HAS HAD, A LOT OF LEFTIES DON’T LIKE STRAIGHT SHOOTERS THAT’S IS WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS!

  • A Suprema Corte deveria julgar os processos dos votos ROUBADOS nos Estados da luta, ou seja, Arizona, Geórgia, Michigan, Pensilvânia, Wisconsin e etc.! Assim, concederia ou para um ou para outro a eleição, LEGITIMAMENTE!
