Ukraine evidence against Trump 'thinnest' for impeachment - scholar

Jonathan Turley, a professor of public interest law at George Washington University Law School, will tell impeachment prosecutors in Congress later on Wednesday that he has concerns about the current proceedings against President Donald Trump and their basis in the allegations related to Ukraine, according to his prepared statement obtained by the media.

The scholar, who will also openly state that he doesn't support Trump and voted against him in 2016, believes that Ukraine allegations against the president have "the thinnest evidentiary record" and the "narrowest grounds ever" to impeach a president. "I am concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger," the professor will say.

The House Judiciary Committee will today open public testimonies by constitutional scholars speaking on the subject of impeachment, named "The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment."
