'Breathtaking' and 'disturbing': Trump impeachment witness offers stinging opinion of Jan. 6 revelations
A Fox News legal analyst recently voiced his concerns about the revelations that have come to light in wake of the latest House Select Committee hearings. According to Jonathan Turley, the revelations were both “breathtaking” and “disturbing.”
On Wednesday, July 12, Turley appeared on Fox News where he weighed in on the recent hearings as he explained to viewers why the revelations are so damning. "You're in the Oval Office and people seem to be actually chest pounding," Turley said. "So this is very disturbing. All of these details should disturb everyone."
Per Rolling Stone, the legal analyst also shed light on what he described as an "unhinged” meeting between former Preside Donald Trump, a number of his allies, and other White House officials as they mulled over "ways to salvage an election victory for the president."
The committee also highlighted a text message from former White House aide, Cassidy Hutchinson, who provided damning testimony last month as she painted a disturbing picture of an unhinged West Wing under Trump's leadership.
In addition to Turley's remarks, Fox News' Neil Cavuto also weighed in with a critical assessment of Trump describing him as 'unstable' before asking former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tom Dupree if the people close to Trump were engaging in 'illegal, criminal behavior' by pushing to keep him in office.
Dupree, in turn, said that “people giving him this advice were coming pretty darn close to that line, if not going over it.”
