Rachel just embarrassed Turley.

Showed impeachment of a federal judge, appointed by Clinton who was impeached for being on the take. Taking cash payments from people in front of his court. Best part, the impeachment manager was Schiff and the judge's lawyer was Turley. Turley's defense was he was just mooching. He was impeached and removed from office. Show's what a joke Turley is.

2. Thank you to Rachel

Helped clear up this pesky issue I kept running into whilst watching turley today. His head turns, nods, tilts, brow raises, etc. reminded me of bill barr. In watching the video clips on Maddow’s show tonight, I saw that his style may not be a tell of studying or working with barr, but rather a collection of affects that defense attorneys, maybe some attorneys in general, are practiced in for an air of authority.

The sharing of talking points between republican members and turley still annoys me to the point of utter betrayal compared to his analysis pieces on television. I’ve been irritated with him off and on over the years, but I barely recognized his manner today compared to his tv news speaking manner. During the hearing, I was continually disappointed with him - felt he was being artificial.

Despite all of that, I would not be shocked if he’s been in regular contact with barr.

5. Was Turley's reason for being on TV today was to give a contrarian view of anything? Seems like he

... was smelling his own farts a lot.

8. In contrast PBS EvNews pumped up Turley as a towering figure

implying he more than outweighed in his stature and legal brilliance the 3 others. No mention that his rhetoric was mostly political and even when addressing legal principle twisted it to trash the purpose of this hearing.

"In an age of rage, there's more rage than reason" in the impeachment discussion. ... “I get it: You’re mad. The president’s mad. My Republican friends are mad. My Democratic friends are mad. My wife is mad. My kids are mad. Even my dog seems mad. And Luna is a goldendoodle, and they don’t get mad.”

More than just implication from Turley: Both parties have become so dysfunctionally enraged that it's come to the point that the Democrats have abandoned duty, integrity, even decency to actually try to impeach. This is the kind of thing PBS is now pushing.

Oh, and we're losing. We held judiciary committee hearing to try to "bolster" our case.
