Jonathan Turley, the sole Republican witness during the House Judiciary Committee's first public impeachment hearing Wednesday, said he was "inundated with threatening messages" after his testimony, which argued that Democrats do not have enough evidence to support articles of impeachment against President Trump.
"Before I finished my testimony, my home and office were inundated with threatening messages and demands that I be fired from George Washington University for arguing that, while a case for impeachment can be made, it has not been made on this record," Turley wrote in an op-ed for The Hill on Thursday.
The law professor at George Washington University Law School appeared alongside three other legal scholars with opposing views Wednesday and warned that Democrats would be ill-advised to rush to a vote on impeachment articles because they do not have a complete record of witness testimonies and supporting evidence to prove that Trump abused his power to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation into 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden's business dealings there in exchange for military aid.

These people hate Trump, but they really hate us more for electing him.
Aren’t leftists wonderful people!?
Maybe Turley and others like him will wake up and realize that this is serious.
Welcome to the party Pal.
Give him a black team security element . Invite those that threaten to give it a try . Leave the perps in pieces on the sidewalk.
I wonder if the other three legal scholars were inundated with threatening messages. Probably not.
Oh...I’m sure they were....
Can’t allow others to get more attention.
I’m sure Karlan will make the claim, just to deflect from her negative portrayal.
Tell the truth and arm up. Expect no mercy, give none.
These sick #s on the Left underscore the necessity of our Constitutional rights.
What do you expect from democrats? sooner or later they will start being violent in the street.
I’m just wondering how much the tags will be.
Turley is NOT a Republican.
You barely need a grade school education, if even that, to understand that Trump did nothing wrong.
and Pamela Karlan?
This is his MUGGING!! Maybe his DEMOCRAT family will see th6 EVIL!!
And the fact that Turley is a Democrat and did NOT vote for Trump begins to tell you just how far LEFT these goofy ba$tards have drifted.
These are your peeps, Jonathan. Dershowitz learned the same hard lesson that libs don’t give a damn about the rule of law.
Very true; but scary also.
Not even the moderate of them is not safe
