Stanford law professor lights up House impeachment hearing

The US House intelligence committee on Tuesday voted to send its report concluding that Donald Trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rivals to the judiciary committee, triggering the next phase of the impeachment inquiry.

The President spent Tuesday in a series of meetings headlined by a clash with a key ally - France - while praising an alliance member many other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members are concerned about - Turkey. "Our first task is to explore the framework put in place to respond to serious allegations of impeachable misconduct like those against President Trump", Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said last week.

Trump said Tuesday that he was not focused on impeachment while overseas but also spent portions of his busy day telling members of the press that the inquiry was a "hoax" and sharing several tweets about impeachment.

Turley compared the Democrats' rush to impeachment to what Republicans did in the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson in 1868, widely regarded as a cautionary example of what not to do.

Turley tells members of the House Judiciary Committee that he thinks the impeachment proceedings are being rushed for no reason.

He also noted that while a president could be impeached without committing a crime, no president had ever been impeached without a crime being alleged, because the criminal statute was an independent standard of misconduct. A columnist at Bloomberg Opinion, he has argued that Democrats should avoid legalism in their impeachment arguments - which would "consist of the idea that Trump's conduct can best be condemned by identifying a specific legal rule and showing that he violated it" - and he wrote a piece called "Trump's Quid Pro Quo Is Unconstitutional".

"Oh lord, yes, things have changed a whole lot since these testimonies", Clyburn said, referring to the Intelligence Committee depositions and hearings, acknowledging he had told reporters two weeks ago he was still unsure about whether impeaching Trump was in the offing. This continued solicitation of foreign interference in a USA election presents a clear and present danger that the President will continue to use the power of his office for his personal political gain. Second, he has asked the president of a foreign country - actually asked the presidents of a few different countries - to intervene in the next election on his behalf. You're doing precisely what you're criticizing the president for doing.

For now, the White House counsel has refused to participate - at least in the first hearing. Administration officials and Trump, who ultimately released the aid in September, have repeatedly said they held up the payment due to concerns about how it would be used by President Volodymyr Zelensky's government.

Collins says "this is not impeachment, this is a simple railroad job".

Karlan also broke away from her prepared opening remarks to hit back at Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking Republican on the committee, who implied the witnesses hadn't fully digested the 300-page impeachment report released late Tuesday by Democrats on the panel.

Even so, the 300-page report approved by the Democrats on the Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees on Tuesday weaves what we have learned over the last few months into a compelling narrative with an inescapable conclusion: Trump has compromised and subverted USA national security interests for his own domestic political purposes and must be held accountable. In the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton described an impeachable offense as "the abuse or violation of some public trust".

If they pass as expected, Trump would then stand trial for removal in the Republican-controlled Senate, where he is likely to be exonerated.
