Adam Schiff continues to mislead the public with his impeachment inquiry.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live, we provided analysis of where we stand with the impeachment inquiry and discussed yesterday’s public hearings.
A key thing to note is that both Ambassador Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary Kent admittedly have not had contact with President Trump and couldn’t with any degree of certainty have knowledge of his thinking.
There’s a growing consensus, not just amongst supporters of the President, that the arguments that Adam Schiff is building the impeachment inquiry on increasingly shaky ground.
George Washington Law Professor and Legal Analyst Jonathan Turley said on CBS, yesterday:
I do think we have to be very cautious when we talk about what the standard is. I think there is a lot to be outraged about, you certainly don’t need a crime for impeachment, but you do need clarity. They’re proceeding on the narrowest basis for impeachment in the history of this country. We’ve never gone up with an impeachment just on abuse of power linked to a single controversy like this.
That is a very slender basis, and I’m not too sure they gained a lot of ground on impeachment as opposed to, all of this does not seem right to many of us. There’s a lot here that makes us all upset. But the question is, is this really an impeachable offense, and how do you distinguish what the President did here with what Presidents do in conversations with heads of states?
Sometimes I agree with Professor Turley and sometimes I don’t. He’s not a totally partisan guy. I don’t always agree with his constitutional analysis but he is someone who is respected by both sides of the aisle. His analysis is a pretty good take on what the House Majority is trying to pull on the American people.
We also discussed a piece the New Yorker did in 2016, highlighting Obama’s war on whistleblowers.
“His [Obama’s] Justice Department has prosecuted more such cases against whistle-blowers than all previous Administrations combined . . . .”
President Obama prosecuted whistleblowers. President Trump may not like the “whistleblower” but his Administration is not out there prosecuting this or any other whistleblower. There also is the point that the “whistleblower” may not be a real whistleblower.
ACLJ Director of Government Affairs Thann Bennett pointed out that “this is yet another example of a double standard.”
Speaker Pelosi hasn’t even committed to moving forward with impeachment articles, yet. In response to a question at her weekly press conference, she said “I don’t know about that. We haven’t even made a decision to impeach, that’s what the inquiry is about.”
The lingering question about impeachment is: Do they want to just hang impeachment out there during the election process to hurt the President, rather than have the Senate completely exonerate the President?
