The Democrats really haven’t thought this whole impeachment ordeal through, and it has shown in these impeachment hearings as one by one their witnesses have been ripped to shreds by Republican lawmakers.
Today was no different, as Democrats allowed the nutty-professor Pamela S. Karlan speak on impeachment, and it did not go well.
Democrat “witness” Pamela Karlan is completely UNHINGED.

When Matt Gaetz was allowed to ask questions, he did not mince words. Here’s the exchange in all its brutality:
Gaetz: YOU GAVE $2,000 TO HILLARY CLINTON.
Karlan: THAT’S CORRECT.
Gaetz: WHY SO MUCH MORE FOR HILLARY THAN THE OTHER TWO.
Karlan: BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN GIVING A LOT OF MONEY TO CHARITY RECENTLY BECAUSE OF ALL THE POOR PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES.
At this point Karlan was beginning to show her true colors, later apologizing for “getting heated”.
Gaetz: THOSE AREN’T THE ONLY FOLKS YOU HAVE BEEN GIVING TO. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ON A PODCAST CALLED VERSUS TRUMP.
Karlan: I THINK I WAS ON A LIVE PANEL THAT WILL THE PEOPLE THAT RAN THE PODCAST CALLED VERSUS TRUMP.
Gaetz: ON THAT DO YOU REMEMBER SAYING THE FOLLOWING? LIBERALS TEND TO CLUSTER MORE. CONSERVATIVES, ESPECIALLY VERY CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE TEND TO SPREAD OUT MORE, PERHAPS BECAUSE THEY DON’T EVEN WANT TO BE AROUND THEMSELVES. DID YOU SAY THAT?
Karlan: YES, I DID.
Gaetz: DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THAT REFLECTS CONTEMPT ON PEOPLE WHO ARE CONSERVATIVE?
Karlan: NO, WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT THERE WAS THE NATURAL TENDENCY, IF YOU PUT THE QUOTE IN CONTEXT, THE NATURAL TENDENCY OF A COMPACTNESS REQUIREMENT TO FAVOR A PARTY WHOSE VOTERS ARE SPREAD OUT.
(Thats a bunch of BS)
Gaetz: I HAVE LIMITED TIME PROFESSOR SO WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT HOW LIBERALS WANT TO BE AROUND EACH OTHER AND CONSERVATIVES DON’T WANT TO BE AROUND EACH OTHER AND HAVE TO SPREAD OUT, YOU MAY NOT SEE THIS FROM THE IVORY TOWERS OF YOUR LAW SCHOOL BUT IT MAKES PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY — EXCUSE ME, YOU DON’T GET TO INTERRUPT ME ON THIS TIME. NOW LET ME ALSO SUGGEST THAT WHEN YOU INVOKE THE PRESIDENT’S SON’S NAME HERE. WHEN YOU TRY TO MAKE A LITTLE JOKE OUT OF REFERENCING BARRON TRUMP. THAT DOES NOT LEND CREDIBILITY TO YOUR ARGUMENT. IT MAKES YOU LOOK MEAN AND LIKE YOU’RE ATTACKING SOMEONE’S FAMILY, THE MINOR CHILD OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. SO LET’S SEE IF WE CAN GET INTO THE FACTS TO ALL OF THE WITNESSES. IF YOU HAVE PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF A SINGLE MATERIAL FACT IN THE SCHIFF REPORT, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. AND LET THE RECORD REFLECT NO PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF A SINGLE FACT AND YOU KNOW WHAT, THAT CONTINUES ON THE TRADITION WE SAW FROM ADAM SCHI IF,FF. MR. KENT NEVER MET WITH THE PRESIDENT. FIONA HILL NEVER HEARD THE PRESIDENT REFERENCE ANYTHING REGARDING MILITARY AID. MR. HEAL WAS UNAWARE OF ANY ACTIVITY WITH AID. AND DENIED THERE WAS A QUID QUID PRO QUO AND MR. MORRISON SAID THERE WASN’T ANYTHING ON THE CALL. AND THE ONLY DIRECT EVIDENCE WAS MR. SONDLAND THAT SAID I WANT NOTHING. NO QUID PRO QUO AND IF WIRETAPPING A POLITICAL OPPONENT AND MAYBE IT’S A DIFFERENT PRESIDENT WE SHOULD BE IMPEACHING.
I might be alone in this, but I cannot wait for the Senate hearing. Can you imagine what will happen when Republicans get a chance to call WHOEVER THEY WANT!
