First, the Judicial Committee fixed a hearing for a day it knew President Donald Trump would be attending a very important NATO meeting in London.
Second, the “star witnesses” turned out to be 4 university professors who have no connection to Trump nor Ukraine but whose mission was to lecture America on why the president should be impeached. None is a member of the U.S. house of representatives. One confessed that “I did not vote for Trump.” And yet another said she practically walks blind to avoid “seeing a Trump hotel”.
And just when you think that the joke can’t go any more ludicrous, Pamela Karlan, Sanford University professor of “Constitutional Law”, didn’t think Trump should be president because he named his son Baron. Ms Karlan’s attacks on the 13 -year- old youngest son of the president and only child of First Lady Melanie was the poorest taste ever on display in the capitol building. If you thought Newt Gingrich was unhinged in 1998, the former speaker is today a decaffeinated version of the gaping hate, envy and bitterness by those who seek to remove Trump. As typified by Karlan.
Baron Trump is by agreement of all rational people off limits. But because the impeachment which the president calls a “sham” has become like a crumbling circus, the actors no longer know boundaries. Ironically, professors of the constitution didn’t know the first letter of why a constitution is in place ,to start with.
What’s more, Professor Karlan managed to convey the impression that the constitution is no longer sacred. That nothing is off limits. What’s worse, she managed to warn America that they need to be protected against the democratic party.
Baron’s heartbroken mother who is almost reticent by Washington standard had to reply Ms Karlan. And only in a few words:“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it”.
And a few more:
Sara A.Carter:“It’s disgusting how much hate she has in her heart for @POTUS – the worst witness because her bias is so obvious she even targeted the president’s young son with her statements… a sad state of affairs and reality that extreme leftists r attempting to overturn an election”.
Donated $1,200 to Obama
Donated $2,000 to Hillary Clinton
Donated $1,000 to Elizabeth Warren
Is anyone surprised that Democrats chose her as an expert witness?
And is anyone surprised they’re all okay with her attacking President Trump’s 13-year old son?”
@Rep. Mark Meadows.
” I remain lost as to what my Democrat colleagues thought they were accomplishing bringing in 3 liberal law professors to explain why President Trump should be impeached. This is a debacle”.
The putative main streams media is awash with headlines about prof Karlan’s apologies. But I know from experience that what she dead wasn’t really a mea culpa. Instead she gauged correctly that she failed. “If I can say one thing, I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that“. Karlan said.
One of the professors, Jonothan Turley, sensing immense damage,changed his mind. Even though he didn’t vote for Trump, doesn’t like his opinions, etc, the impeachment didn’t follow due process. According to him, the framers of the constitution knew that at some point, people like professor Karlan would be able to influence the removal of a president out of sheer hate.Prof. Jonathan Turley: “This would be the first impeachment in history where there would be considerable debate and in my view not compelling evidence of a commission of a crime.”
Professor Turley saved himself but not the day. He certainly didnt save his profession. Did he rescue the democratic party? No ,he couldn’t. Professor Karlan had done too much damage.
By the way, we hear that Professor Turkey’s Dean at GW is being pressured to fire him. For daring to be different from Pamela Karlan.
