Jonathan Turley Says Joe Biden Went Too Far: “Nixonian-type allegations of the abuse of office”

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley said President Joe Biden’s White House has crossed the line by trying to create “a de facto state media in the United States.”

Turley accused Biden of trying to bully the media and Facebook into covering up his scandals.

The George Washington University Law School professor was responding after Biden’s White House sent threatening letters to corporate media outlets and Big Tech companies demanding they try to discredit the president’s recent impeachment inquiry launch.

Turley wrote: “First, as I have previously noted, the White House is now actively involved in pushing narratives and denying factual allegations linked to the Biden corruption scandal.

‘That could create Nixonian-type allegations of the abuse of office in the use of federal employees to counter impeachment efforts.

“Second, the letter was drafted by Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House Counsel’s Office.

“So White House lawyers are now enlisting the media in a counter media campaign against impeachment?

“The letter removes any pretense of separation between the Biden personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s office.

“Sams has been the most aggressive White House official in actively swatting down allegations of corruption as well as the president’s documents
