Turley is weak.

He is suggesting that there can be no "Obstruction of Justice" unless it is against the Supreme Court.

Since the Supreme Court is not given the duty of oversight of the Executive Branch, it would be a dereliction of duty for the Congress to forfeit their Constitutional duties to the Supreme Court, it seems to me?

It is the sole responsibility of Congress to impeach and to file charges against the President. It is up to the Senate to rule on it.

I do not believe Turley is making very valid arguments.

1. Turley is in the situation of having to defend a guilty President.

3. I've been thinking that he was the only one willing to even show up

to attempt to defend the GOP position and he is failing spectacularly at it by going in circles with what arguments he actually supports!

He whined about the impeachment investigation being "too narrow" then argued about it being "too broad" and then went on to argue other related process nonsense like it going "too fast" (and I think he even said something about it not being allowed to marinate" (or similar)). .

8. I think you're right. I also think he might have declined if he knew what was in the Intel report

That report really boxed him in, leaving him little room.

6. Even though I didn't agree...
