Jonathan Turley: Trump Trial Was ‘Abuse’ of America’s Justice System

Renowned legal scholar Professor Jonathan Turley has blasted the “hush money” trial against President Donald Trump as an “abuse” of America’s once-great justice system.

Turley, a professor at George Washington University Law School, discussed the Trump trial verdict with Fox News star Judge Jeanine Pirro.

During an appearance on “America Reports,” Turley described the “guilty” verdict as “popular justice of Manhattan.”

However, he noted that this is not the kind of justice Americans “look for.”

Turley compared the trial to Special Counsel Robert Hur’s classified documents case against Democrat President Joe Biden.

Hur noted in his report that Biden was found to have mishandled classified material.

However, the special counsel chose not to pursue a conviction because the just would unlike convict Biden due to his diminished mental state.

Turley explains:

“Well, there’s an irony, of course, because you just had a special counsel who said, I’m not indicting the president because he’s an elderly man with a failing memory…

Turley also noted that federal prosecutors had previously determined that Trump had not committed a crime before the state case was launched.

Pirro also weighed in on the long-term implications of the lawfare trial.

She noted that the Democrats’ conviction of their number one political enemy now means they can go after “whomever they want.”
