Turley: Media's 'One-Sided' View of Mueller Probe 'Increasingly Alarming'
Law Professor Jonathan Turley said Thursday night that the media's "one-sided" view of the Russia investigation is becoming increasingly alarming.
He said on "Hannity" that the media seems unwilling to cover any positive news about the probe, let alone Trump's presidency itself.
"There is not a strong, credible case of crime that is emerging from this investigation," Turley said.
Turley wrote in an op-ed piece for The Hill that the media is in "denial" that Trump committed any type of collusion or obstruction.
"Rather than refusing to accept indicators of impending death, many journalists and analysts seem incapable of accepting signs that the Trump presidency could survive," he wrote.
The Washington Post reported Tuesday night that Special Counsel Robert Mueller told Trump's attorneys last month that the president is the subject of the investigation, but not a criminal target at this juncture.
The president has said he wants to testify before the special counsel, and in person, but many have said doing so could be risky and advise answering written questions.

Turley also told Sean Hannity that in the case of potential obstruction of justice -- as it pertains to the firing of former FBI Director James Comey -- the president would have "insurmountable defenses."
