TRUMP NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ACTIONS OF HIS SUPPORTERS: ATTORNEY

Summit.news ———–By Paul Joseph Watson ————Mon., Jan.11, 2021

Attorney Jonathan Turley has warned that the impending impeachment of Donald Trump over the storming of Capitol Hill sets the precedent that presidents can be impeached for the actions of their supporters.

Top Democrats say they “have the votes” to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump for “inciting an insurrectionist mob” during last week’s incident.

The text of the resolution accuses Trump of “willfully inciting violence against the Government of the United States.”

However, according to attorney Jonathan Turley, Trump’s speech to his supporters before the occupation of the Capitol “does not meet the definition of incitement under the U.S. criminal code” and “would be considered protected speech by the Supreme Court.”

Turley says that the real danger would be to normalize “snap impeachments,” gut free speech and “create precedent for the impeachment of any president who can be blamed for the violent acts of others after the use of reckless or inflammatory language.”

“There was no call for lawless action by Trump. Instead, there was a call for a protest at the Capitol,” he writes.

“Moreover, violence was not imminent; the vast majority of the tens of thousands of protesters present were not violent before the march, and most did not riot inside the Capitol.”

Despite the hysteria that has been generated by the media surrounding the Capitol Hill storming, most analysts say a second attempt at impeaching Trump would ultimately fail, primarily because many lawmakers fear it would just stir up more anger and distract from Joe Biden’s first 100 days as president.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
