George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley continued to throw more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment fantasy Wednesday; warning lawmakers it would be their “abuse of power” if the President is removed from office.
“If you impeach a president, if you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power. It’s your abuse of power. You’re doing exactly what you’re criticizing the president of doing,” said Turley.

COLLINS UNLEASHED: Rep. Doug Collins SLAMS Nadler, Asks ‘Where’s the BILL?’
Rep. Doug Collins slammed House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler during congressional hearings this week; demanding the top Democrat introduce a bill on foreign election interference or move on.
“The only real thing we all agree on from the Mueller report was foreign influence from Russia, but yet — where’s the bill? Where’s the bill? Where’s Waldo? Where’s the bill?” demanded Collins.
“We don’t do anything about it. We like to talk about it because we think it makes the President look bad. That’s the implication we’ve been giving for two years,” he added.

Former Trump campaign associate Corey Lewandowski slammed Jerrold Nadler’s Judiciary Committee Tuesday; saying the Russia-Collusion narrative is the “greatest crime committed against the American people” in a generation.
“I think this fake Russia-Collusion narrative is the greatest crime committed against the American people in our generation, if not ever… Members of certain bodies refuse to accept election results,” said Lewandowski.
“If this had been done by a different President to a different party the same way it was done to Donald Trump, those people would already be thrown out of office and people would be in jail. But when you support Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, there’s a different set of rules,” he added.

COLLINS: ‘This is Not Impeachment, This is a Railroad Job and Today is a Waste of Time’
Republican Congressman Doug Collins unloaded on Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s impeachment inquiry Wednesday morning; labeling the process a “railroad job” and a total “waste of time” for all-involved.
“We may be all scrubbed up and looking pretty for impeachment but this is not an impeachment. This is just a simple railroad job and today’s is a waste of time,” Collins told the Committee.
The House Judiciary Committee began the next phase of the Democrats’ impeachment probe Wednesday morning; hours after Intel Chair Adam Schiff published the findings of his party’s efforts to remove President Trump from the White House.
Wednesday’s hearings will feature a handful of legal scholars and professors from Harvard Law School, Stanford, the University of North Carolina, and George Washington University.

“The Founders were concerned about political impeachment because you just don’t like the guy… The Chairman has talked about impeachment since last year before he’s even sworn in as Chairman. Don’t tell me that this is about new things, this is nothing new,” said Rep. Doug Collins.
“This impeachment is not about facts… We’ve already gone through this after Mueller, Emoluments, the list goes on,” he added.
