CBS This Morning analyst Jonathan Turley offered an unpopular opinion, Monday, one not heard much on the network newscasts: Impeachment might not work out just the way Democrats and liberals in the media think. Turley actually highlighted problems for the Bidens, noting, “One of the only ways to really take down Donald Trump may be to beat him with a lifeless body of Joe Biden.”
Co-host Anthony Mason marveled, “You think there's actual concern about what Hunter Biden may have done?” Turley concluded that he didn’t think Biden explicitly moved to have the Ukranian prosecutor fired. But, he added, “ You're left with a very disturbing contrast by Hunter Biden's. It does look like an effort to influence his father. It's not going to look good in the bright lights of a Senate trial.”
Effort - Father - Lights - Senate - Trial
He concluded, “It does look like an effort to influence his father. It's not going to look good in the bright lights of a Senate trial. The Senate could try to take down Trump, do measurable damage to Biden, and Trump could survive. That's the nightmare of Nancy Pelosi.”
