Impeachment-Obsessed Democrats Ignore Logic and Law as 4 Professors Testify at Hearing
“It is tempting to describe Wednesday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee as a farce. But it was worse than that. It made a travesty of fairness,” Gregg Jarrett writes for Fox News.
“[Chairman Jerrold] Nadler assembled a team of three liberal law professors who were already on record as antagonistic to President Trump. During their daylong testimony, the hostility was palpable. There was little effort to disguise the relentless Democratic agenda to remove Trump from office by hell or high water.”
“Democrats are eyeing an impeachment count for obstruction of justice, simply because Trump has demanded court rulings before allowing top aides to testify in these hearings. Notes Turley, ‘If you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power. It’s your abuse of power,’” the New York Post editorial board writes.
“Democrats are trying to convince Americans that President Trump should be ousted for trying to ‘dig up dirt’ on a rival. They’d have more credibility if they didn’t abuse their surveillance powers for drive-by smears of Republicans and a free press,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.
“House Democrats don’t need advice from journalists on how to be ruthlessly partisan, because that’s their natural state.” But New York Times writer Jamelle Bouie is here to help where he can. “Bouie cautioned Democrats against voting in favor of the Trump administration’s new trade deal with Mexico and Canada solely because it would be politically helpful for the president,” Eddie Scarry writes in the Washington Examiner.
