A Republican witness scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday will argue that impeaching President Trump over the Ukraine allegations would be a historic mistake.
“If the House proceeds solely on the Ukrainian allegations, this impeachment would stand out among modern impeachments as the shortest proceeding, with the thinnest evidentiary record, and the narrowest grounds ever used to impeach a president,” Jonathan Turley, a professor of public interest law at George Washington University Law School, will say, according to his prepared testimony.
“That does not bode well for future presidents who are working in a country often sharply and, at times, bitterly divided,” he will add.
Turley is also an opinion contributor for The Hill.
