Preeminent Legal Scholar/Professor Johnathan Turley says the "Snap Impeachment" that Nancy Pelosi plans to use against President Trump during this, his final full week in office, is unconstitutional. It bypasses the normal processes, and offers no opportunity for the President to defend himself.

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley says President Donald Trump should not be subjected to a “snap impeachment” despite the “reckless” words he uttered at a rally that preceded his supporters’ storming of the U.S. Capitol.

“The concept of a snap impeachment is a contradiction in constitutional terms. This is a process that was designed to be deliberative, not impulsive—and this really is not what the framers envisioned.

This is trying to run to the floor, and skip any inquiry and hearing on these very troubling issues,” he said Monday, on Michael Smerconish’s SiriusXM radio show.

“Democrats may loathe the day that they created this pathway. In two years the Republicans could take over the House. Would they then oppose a snap impeachment of President [Joe] Biden? There has to be some integrity left in this process,” Turley said.

There was a time when being "impeached" was something every public official wanted to avoid at all cost. But after Nancy Pelosi impeached President Trump in November of 2019, the President told an audience the next week, "I sure don't feel like I've been impeached!".

That's because Nancy Pelosi's Impeachment managers, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, didn't allow President Trump to present any rebuttal, and ended up Impeaching him on a couple of trivial items. Most Americans can't tell you what those items are, because they were so insignificant.

What Nancy Pelosi is proposing this time is even more trivial in nature. A "SNAP" impeachment that takes less than 3 days to accomplish.

A Snap-Impeachment further dilutes the gravity of what is essentially nothing more than a political label, to begin with.

Not at all suprising at this point.
Will they be suprised when BAMN is turned against them in kind?

Snap impeach Sotomayor for some charge... or any unwanted Judges too. Cabinet members, Governors, dog catchers...why not?

Sorta like a Vegas impeachment?

Drive-Thru?

This has got to be the most outrageous political manoeuvres ever seen.

Until tomorrow...

Question. So let’s assume Pelosi and the dems ram the impeachment through and Trump gets impeached. By the time the Senate convens and has a trial Biden will be sworn in. So how can the Senate convict someone for impeachable offenses when that individual is no longer President? How can you Congress remove a President when he is already no longer President? It doesn’t make any sense. Help ATS!

By any means, they said.

But not to incite anyone.

This is all very peaceful and proper.

They can't.

It only happened once before that someone was impeached out of office and it led to immediate acquittal, because of that fact.

Thank you. The clown and circus show is what it is now. I could probably count on my hand the number of congressmen and Senators that actually care about their constituents. What a waste of taxpayers money.

I should qualify what I said. They couldn't do it within the law, previously, but who know what kind of shenanigans they'll pull.

Democrats will argue and scream why Joe Biden should not be snap-impeached, just like they asserted that Congressmen should not contest the 2020 Presidential election results. Even though several of them have contested the results of past elections.

Just like they did with using the "nuclear option" to confirm judges, they're opening the door to having every elected official snap-impeached, going forward. A very dangerous precedent. But thinking ahead seems to be beyond Democrats, when left to operate on their own.

If it wasn't for China's planning and guidance, Democrats would not have thought of unleashing a virus to enable mass mail-in voting this past election. That took advance planning.

It's uncharted waters. Supposedly, if the Senate convicts President Trump, he cannot be President again. Joe Biden is working with Mitch McConnell to run a "split" Senate where half the day will be used to confirm his cabinet nominees, and half the day for former President Trump's trial. Legal scholars don't know if this is possible. Again, uncharted waters.

It's insane how quickly Congress is acting to punish President Trump, after taking 5 months to reluctantly agree to a trivial $600 Covid stimulus payment (refund of some of our tax-dollars) to Americans.

Like President Trump said this morning, there's no way the 25th Amendment would be used to remove him, but Joe Biden stands a good chance of being removed from office via the 25th Amendment.

Obviously trying to get Trump supporters pissed off enough to attack on the 20th. Pedolosy should be impeached!

If he is in office yes.

Otherwise, no.

They can hold the impeachment trial, but would lead to acquittal. As has happened once before.

It's never happened to a POTUS.

No President has ever actually been removed.

The charge of insurrection is a biggie. And it disbars you from a seat in Congress or any other public trust, unless you get a Congress to forgive you. All of which was post Civil War punishments during Reconstruction. But many were indeed pardoned and returned to sit.

Problem is, you now have a Congress that is using Impeachment as a weapon without proof to remove a President with no trial or discussion. Some may call that insurrection as well and legally we would find ourselves with a very empty House and Senate...wonder what the SCOTUS has to sayin a 5-4 or 7-2 type of decision...

I mean that would be well over 200 Representativesnever able to serve, sacrificing their pensions, for seething Sith levels of hate...awesome.

Couldn't imposing a sham impeachment against a sitting president be classified as insurrection?
