  • During his questioning of legal experts, Republican counsel Paul Taylor evoked Alexander Hamilton’s concerns over impeachments, favoring the interests of one political party over the other. Taylor asked Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor, whether Hamilton predicted a “real danger here of hyperpartisan impeachments.” Turley said yes, adding that it was notable that there wasn’t a “slew of impeachments” during the framers’ time. “And I think that’s a lesson that can be taken from that period, that the framers created a standard that would not be endlessly fluid and flexible,” Turley said. “And that standard has kept us from impeachments despite periods in which we have really despised each other.” The questioning came on the first day of public hearings on Dec. 4 by the House Judiciary Committee as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Other witnesses included Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, Pamela S. Karlan, a Stanford law professor, and Michael Gerhardt, a University of North Carolina law professor.
