Legal scholar Jonathan Turley will testify in the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing Wednesday that he is a fierce critic of President Trump’s policies and conduct but nevertheless views the impeachment case against him as “woefully inadequate.”
“One can oppose President Trump’s policies or actions but still conclude that the current legal case for impeachment is not just woefully inadequate, but in some respects, dangerous, as the basis for the impeachment of an American president,” Mr. Turley will say, according to his prepared opening statement.
Mr. Turley, a professor at George Washington University Law School, is one of four legal scholars to testify Wednesday on the grounds for impeachment. He is the only witness called by Republicans, with the other three being Democratic witness with a history of statements supporting the impeachment of Mr. Trump.
He also testified at the impeachment hearings for President Bill Clinton. He served as a lawyer in the last Senate impeachment trial, where he represented Democratic-appointed federal Judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.
In his opening statement, Mr. Turley will scold House Democrats for the rush to impeach Mr. Trump on flimsy evidence, and warn them that they are setting a dangerous precedent for a partisan impeachment.
