He was badmouthed by the legal establishment, called names, called brainless, called a shame to his profession etc.
Simply by stating what he knows best as a criminal defense attorney - whether there are or there are no legal grounds to sustain criminal charges.
Now the same harassment campaign is unleashed upon a well-known George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley.
For simply - also - stating his expert opinion that he does not see legal grounds for impeachment of the President, badly wanted by the Democrats in the House.
That articles of impeachment may not be based simply on somebody's anger, dislike and desire to impeach.
For his testimony, Professor Turley got the following:
1) a demand to fire him (a tenured professor) - won't happen, but the mere fact, of what is demanded and in response to what; and, note, that the demand to fire Professor Turley came from within the law school - from a member of the faculty or from a "future lawyer of America", a law professor or a law student;
2) threatening messages delivered to his home and office:
As a tenured professor, he won't be fired.
If he is, he will be offered a zillion jobs.
But - think about it, what chance does a regular Joe has in simple expressing his opinion that is based on his professional training and expertise, but that goes against the temper tantrums, petty grudges and wants of a large number of people in power?
Obviously, attorney ethics - or the U.S. Constitution, its 1st Amendment, freedom of speech, or the freedom to exercise one's expert opinion and speak his mind based on his professional training and experience - are not worth a damn in the nowadays America.
We want impeachment (or anything else).
Do not stand in our path.
This is NOT called a democracy.
