The four witnesses called today to testify were supposed to be constitutional experts with no bias.
At least one witness, however, is nothing more than a Democrat mouthpiece.
That same witness not only has ties to presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s news agency, he may have also just lied under oath.
The So-Called Unbiased Expert
Noah Feldman is a law professor at Harvard University.
He is one of four constitutional “experts” testifying today.
While I cannot speak to the other three just yet, I was able to dig up some dirt on Feldman that brings into question his integrity and honesty during these proceedings.
Feldman, while testifying, called himself an “impeachment skeptic.”
We can take this to mean that he was approaching the Trump presidency with an open mind.
He stated that the July 25 phone call is what changed his mind.
However, I just located an article on Bloomberg.com, the news outlet owned by Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, that was penned on March 6, 2017, with the headline, “Trump’s Wiretap Tweets Raise Risk of Impeachment.”
The sub-headline on the article is the really damning statement, though, reading, “If the president has made false claims of a crime without proof, there’s only one constitutional remedy.”
Clearly, Feldman was looking at impeachment more than 18 months ago, which would make his statement on the stand a complete lie.
Not only that, if he is contributing on Bloomberg.com, he is being paid, which would put him in the pocket of a presidential candidate, yet he has been allowed to testify during an impeachment hearing for the removal of a Republican president.
If he is not being paid, he is being given a major platform to raise his profile free of charge.
If this were related to an election, it would be considered an in-kind donation.
Point being, even if it is not monetary, he is receiving some sort of compensation for his contribution to the website. Either way, he is indebted to Bloomberg.
Now I would not exactly call that an unbiased witness, would you?
Before I leave you, you have to see the statement Feldman made when he recommended impeachment for Trump.
He literally warned people of the price they will have to pay in the afterlife if they do not impeach Trump.
Feldman stated, “It’s very unusual for the framers’ predictions to come true that precisely, and when they do, we have to ask ourselves.
“Someday, we will no longer be alive, and we will go wherever it is we go, the good place or the other place, and we may meet there Madison and Hamilton.
“And they will ask us, ‘When the president of the United States acted to corrupt the structure of the republic, what did you do?’
“And our answer to that question must be that we followed the guidance of the framers, and it must be that if the evidence supports that conclusion, that the House of Representatives moves to impeach him.”
He is literally speculating what our Framers and Founders, people that have been dead for centuries and individuals he did not obviously personally know or ever met, are thinking.
This man sounds as though he belongs in a white coat with his arms strapped around his back, not sitting in front of a House committee with the fate of sitting president hanging on his testimony.
