1. People are attacking Turley a a hack. He has both a valid argument, which is disingenuous at the same time. The evidentiary record is less robust than it should be; there should be more investigation of Ukraine affair. However, that is still a bit of sophistry and raises...

4...Turley is bemoaning the *consequence* of an impeachable offense. Trump has set himself up for two sets of possible impeachments: One for obstruction, one for Ukraine affair. The Senate GOP will be left arguing "Well, the case is silly." There is no "silly" exemption under....
