    Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley declared Speaker Pelosi abused her power, overplayed her hand by delaying sending Articles of Impeachment to the Senate to pressure McConnell for concessions and preserve her self-image as a 'master strategist' - 'IT BACKFIRED!'

    McConnell had no reason to give Pelosi anything as she had no leverage, authority, power...and everyone knew it...except Nancy.

    :p

    Turley stated 'Pelosi pushed impeachment out of "vanity" ' and would pay a "high price" for doing so.'

    Claiming the need to immediately remove the President then delaying was an epic blunder that derailed / debunked her own case, exposing the House's Impeachment as dangerously politically partisan:

    “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,”

    ...SAID THE DEMOCRATS' OWN CONSTITUTIONAL EXPERT, WHO TESTIFIED DURING THE HOUSE IMPEACHMENT THAT TRUMP NEVER VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION, NEVER BROKE THE LAW, AND NEVER ABUSED HIS POWERS....BUT SAID THE DEMOCRATS HAD AND CONTINUE TO DO SO...

    She couldn't play checkers, or even jacks without cheating or crying.

    PELOSI IS MELTING DOWN...

    Her tabling references to 'Time' was a desperate attempt to salvage her own perception that she is a 'master strategist' for delaying the Articles of Impeachment ... but it's too late.

    Even CNN hammered her for destroying her own narrative of the quick need to remove the President from office by delaying sending the Articles to the Senate.

    The Democrats' own Constitutional Expert stated Pelosi overplayed her hand and placed herself in McConnell's hands, destroying their case with the delay.

    Pelosi's delay was also another example of the abuse of power their expert testified the Democrats, not the President, are guilty of.

    Not to burst your little bubble of ignorance you live in, but Turley was the Repubs expert not the Dems.

    Should all presidents be allowed to shake down foreign leaders in an attempt to influence our elections or just this one?

    Not to shine a spotlight on your ignorance, but Turley is a highly-praised DEMOCRAT Constitutional Expert who was brilliantly called by the Republicans, knowing the Democrats would not / could not complain about them calling the Democrat's most acknowledged Constitutional expert.

    Turley made it clear right up front that he is a DEMOCRSAT, that he does not like the President, that he did NOT VOTE for the President, but that he is an objective Constitutional Scholar, confirming he has been called repeatedly by the Democrats to advise on Constitutional matters.

    Again, this is the difference between Democrats playing checkers and Republicans playing chess. :p

    The Republicans chose Turley as their witness, and Turley torpedoed the Democrats by testifying the President did NOT commit a crime, did NOT violate the Constitution, and did NOT abuse his power, but, again, he declared the DEMOCRATS have and continue to do so.

    DEMOCRATS have not said a word abut Turley's testimony because he gave them no room to do so by what he pointed out right up front. Once again, however, we see snowflakes declaring what DEMOCRATS ADMIT / CONFESS / TESTIFY TO is suddenly NOT true / is false, even when Democrats refuse to make the same claim.

    Bwuhahahahaha.....

    Who shook down a foreign leader? We know the previous admin was covertly overthrowing govts and using the vp name to obtain goodies for his son.

    That’s not what Turley said. Turley said the case against Trump is incomplete. He did not say he committed no crimes. He has good credentials but he also has a dodgy history when it comes to impeachment.

    Anyway, if what you’re saying about Pelosi is true, why doesn’t McConnell have the votes for immediate acquittal?

    The Dimms are impeaching Trump because he went to the courts over the Dimms Subpoenas.

    Let that one marinate. Why didn’t the Dimms let the legal process run its course?
