    The most dangerous place for an academic is often between the House and the impeachment of an American president. I knew that going into the first hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on the impeachment of Donald Trump. After all, Alexander Hamilton that impeachment would often occur in an environment of “agitated passions.” Yet I remained a tad naive in hoping that an academic discussion on the history and standards of it might offer a brief hiatus from hateful rhetoric on both sides.

    In my testimony Wednesday, I lamented that, as in the impeachment of President Clinton from 1998 to 1999, there is an intense “rancor and rage” and “stifling intolerance” that blinds people to opposing views. My call for greater civility and dialogue may have been the least successful argument I made to the committee. Before I finished my testimony, my home and office were inundated with threatening messages and demands that I be fired from George Washington University for arguing that, while a case for impeachment can be made, it has not been made on this record.

    Some of the most heated attacks came from Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee.

    Democrats are committing high treason. They should be charged, tried, and executed.

    Yep, it's been soft coup attempt 24/7 for over three years now. Hope the IG report due to be released next week has repercussions, enough banana republic is enough. Wish Americans had never voted that party into rile the House, this nonsense is what you get. Next year is the opportunity to correct their mistake.

    After listening to some of Turley's "testimony" beyond his opening, I think he leans far too left in his estimate of the situation and does not represent a fair assessment of what has been uncovered so far.

    But then I consider anyone failing to focus seriously on legitimate reasons why Trump would request that Ukraine investigate their political corruption involving Americans to favor the swamp.
