George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley called efforts to impeach President Donald Trump over political disagreements “dangerous,” and warned Democrats to stop forcing the issue.
“I think people need to understand how dangerous this is,” Turley said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday. “That’s dangerous because what people are really describing is what you have in Great Britain with a no confidence vote. That is you can remove a Prime Minister and his government with a simple vote of no confidence. People don’t have confidence in this president. That standard was rejected by the framers.”
Turley said the Democrats entrusted former President Barack Obama with “unilateral authority” and are now being hypocritical in their attempt to remove Trump.
“The Democrats spent almost eight years giving almost unilateral authority in creating this sort of uber-presidency, and now many of them want to create a type of temporary presidency that they can remove this president for what one article described as political disagreements,” he said.
