Turley and Toobin To Debate Impeachment In Dallas After Midterm Election

images-1The National Constitution Center and the Old Parkland Debate Series has announced that a debate will be held on November 12th between George Washington Professor Jonathan Turley and CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin on impeachment.  The debate will occur a week after the 2018 midterm elections and many have called for the impeachment of both President Donald Trump and Judge Brett Kavanaugh following a Democratic takeover of the United States House of Representatives.  The debate question is: Resolved, the framers designed impeachment as a political, rather than a legal process.  Toobin will argue that the Framers intended impeachment to be a political judgment while Turley will argue that the Framers intended more of a legal judgment. Turley was the last lead counsel in an impeachment trial in the Senate and Toobin previously worked for Independent Counsel Lawrence E. Walsh.

The debate will be held Monday, November 12th from 5 to 6 pm and will be moderated by Michael Gerhardt, scholar-in-residence at the National Constitution Center.

  1. may I suggest that all this talk about impeachment is just more gobble-dy-gook spewed out of the mouths of those who seek to destroy the American system, especially the results of our elections. the loud-mouths, such as your opponent, who support such action simply resent the will of the voters. toobin’s constant dribble about everything undercuts anything he says.
