在国会暴动之前的特朗普讲话不足以进行弹each指控: 图雷

Democrats are moving to remove 特朗普总统 from office after Wednesday’s U.S. 国会大厦 暴动, but George Washington University law professor 乔纳森·图利 said he doesn’t believe Trump committed an impeachable offense.

Turley explained to狐狸 & 朋友周末that the president’s call to protest does not constitute insurrection and that Congress must deliberate carefully on the charges to carry out the process constitutionally. Trump invited supporters to rally in Washington Jan. 6, saying it would be “野生,” and gave a speech where he said ralliers would marchpeacefullyto the Capitol. During the speech, he repeated the unproven claim that the election was stolen from him.

The speech itself does not give a clear basis for the charges of insurrection or incitement,” 他说. “The president talks about his followers marching on Congress peacefully… He does not call for riots. He does not call for violence.

With seeking his removal for incitement, Democrats would gut not only the impeachment standard but also free speech, all in a mad rush to remove Trump just days before his term ends,” he states.

Turley said the U.S. Supreme Court would be likely to define Trump’s remarks as constitutionally protected free speech.

Are you actually going to impeach a president for speech that the Supreme Court would likely find protected under the First Amendment?” 他问.

As Democrats push for avicarioussnap impeachment, Turley said the party should be careful of setting such a precedent.
