Comprising the panel this week during a House Judiciary Committee hearing were four Democratic constitutional scholars providing testimony on the issue of impeachment. But to the mainstream media, apparently, there were only three.
Democrats invited three liberal law professors who stated definitively that President Donald Trump should be impeached. Republicans invited one: a Democrat named Jonathan Turley (pictured, far right) who shared that he didn't vote for Trump in 2016, but for Hillary Clinton – and for Barack Obama in 2012. That said, he offered the following warning to the committee members:
Turley: "I believe this impeachment not only fails to satisfy the standard of past impeachments, but would create a dangerous precedent for future impeachments."
But Kyle Drennen of Media Research Center says none in the mainstream media gave Turley the time of day.
"They loved the three constitutional scholars that the Democrats brought forward, and they eagerly quoted everything that they had to say," he tells OneNewsNow. "They really weren't very interested at all in anything Jonathan Turley had to say – which is particularly interesting for CBS News, considering [he] is one of their contributors."
The MRC spokesman says to the contrary, the media fawned over the liberal experts, who wore their bias and their disdain for the president openly.
"They clearly were Democratic supporters and the media treated them as if they were just objective legal experts," he continues. "One of the professors argued that Trump being critical of the press on Twitter was somehow an impeachable offense."
Case in point: Stanford professor Pamela Karlan – one of the liberal experts testifying before the committee – explained during an appearance in 2017 that she once chose to cross the street to avoid walking past the Trump Hotel.
