Just when you thought this impeachment hoax couldn’t get anymore ridiculous, the witness invited by Democrats is throwing cheap shots at the 13 year old son of @realDonaldTrump. Gross and shameful! pic.twitter.com/ugVZfVYDR9— Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS (@RepGosar) December 4, 2019
Professor Karlan just went full neocon and said we need to arm Ukraine to fight the Russians there so we don’t have to fight them here. Yes, really. pic.twitter.com/jeMPXgP7kf— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) December 4, 2019
Norm Eisen, the Democrat who will be questioning the impeachment "witnesses" today, is a partisan hack who's had it out for @RealDonaldTrump since the beginning.— Trump War Room (Text TRUMP to 88022) (@TrumpWarRoom) December 4, 2019
In November 2016 he tweeted "Vive le resistance!"
On Inauguration Day, he tweeted "Let the battle begin!" pic.twitter.com/fRrBhJRQb8

Here is Pamela Karlan, law professor Democrats invited to urge impeachment, explaining how she once decided to cross the street rather than walk by Trump Hotel pic.twitter.com/xWVqhhPtQx

And we wonder why our legal system is so distorted & unfair?! Where "legal ethics" have gone?!@realDonaldTrump @BernardKerik @RightOnCrime @newtgingrich @BarbaraRedgate https://t.co/HH7LZWmiDD
Try this article about Noah Feldman's views on impeachment:
That's right. The Harvard Law prof is Feldman. That's some constitutional scholarship. But it's where our law schools are now.
More Noah Feldman (h/t TGP), who is a big admirer of Shariah Law but not so much of Western civilization:
In fact, for most of its history, Islamic law offered the most liberal and humane legal principles available anywhere in the world. Today, when we invoke the harsh punishments prescribed by Shariah for a handful of offenses, we rarely acknowledge the high standards of proof necessary for their implementation. Before an adultery conviction can typically be obtained, for example, the accused must confess four times or four adult male witnesses of good character must testify that they directly observed the sex act. The extremes of our own legal system — like life sentences for relatively minor drug crimes, in some cases — are routinely ignored. We neglect to mention the recent vintage of our tentative improvements in family law. It sometimes seems as if we need Shariah as Westerners have long needed Islam: as a canvas on which to project our ideas of the horrible, and as a foil to make us look good.
Good for Melania--dignified response. You can think anything you want about Mr. and Mrs. Trump and their private life, but what does Barron have to do with anything? Karlan was clearly using a rehearsed line she thought was clever:
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.— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) December 4, 2019
Professor Pamela Karlan of Stanford Law School became the pompous face of the academic impeachment panel today when she ridiculed the son of President Trump in an effort to highlight her resistance bona-fides. Imagine the hate that necessarily exists in the heart of a witness who would rehearse such a line to gain tribal cheer.￼
Professor Karlan’s tone-deaf effort is a result of a life in an echo-chamber of far-left liberalism. However, the exhibited hatred did more to support the argument of the impeachment opposition than a thousand hours of granular testimony. Karlan’s disposition during her diatribe is a case study in Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Of course Pam Karlan's dishonesty was on full display at the hearing today. Jim Jordan eviscerated her beautifully:
