2. Assume he means John Turly, judge and commentator...

he promotes himself as a judicial scholar. He has faded a bit lately in my esteem. Used to think of him as pretty smart and fair, but he's been pushing a rather rigid Conservative story line the last few years IMHO.

3. Jonathan Turley from his Wikepedia page:

Turley holds the Shapiro Chair for Public Interest Law at The George Washington University Law School where he teaches torts, criminal procedure, and constitutional law. He is the youngest person to receive an academic chair in the school's history. He runs the Project for Older Prisoners (POPS),[5][6] the Environmental Law Clinic, and the Environmental Legislation Project.[1]

Prior to joining the George Washington University, he was on the faculty of Tulane University Law School.[1]

His articles on legal and policy issues appear regularly in national publications; as of 2012, Turley has had articles published in newspapers such as The New York Times,[7] The Washington Post,[8] USA Today,[9] the Los Angeles Times,[5] and the Wall Street Journal.[10] He frequently appears in the national media as a commentator on a multitude of subjects[11][12] ranging from the 2000 U.S. presidential election controversy to the Terri Schiavo case in 2005.[13] He is often a guest on Sunday talk shows,[11] with over two-dozen appearances on Meet the Press, ABC This Week, Face the Nation, and Fox News Sunday. He served as a contributor on Countdown with Keith Olbermann from 2003 until 2011, and later on Current TV[14] in 2011 and early 2012; Turley also appears occasionally on Pacifica Radio's Democracy Now!.[15]

Since the 1990s, he has been the legal analyst for NBC News and CBS News covering stories that ranged from the Clinton impeachment to the presidential elections.[1] He is on the board of contributors of USA Today.[16]

Guess everyone has their breaking point.

9. Professor Turley is another Conservative, starting to eat their own.

The die is cast and Trump's end looms large. Though we are doomed to still have a GOP in the WH (succession line is Pence, then Ryan, then Hatch - or anyone 'planted' - should one such resign and be replaced); it will be a great relief to see the Orange Klan - gone.
