American law schools are notoriously Leftist
The Never-Trump Resistance is fretting that the Jerry Nadler Show on Wednesday (12-04-19) didn’t sell any laundry detergent. That’s because the three law profs called by the Democrats were entirely partisan and unsympathetic.
The three law profs had their snoots so high in the stratosphere they fairly whistled. You’ve got to wonder what the three dozen or so Democrats elected from Trump districts are hearing from the Deplorables back home.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Florida, eviscerated the three partisan law profs, particularly Pamela S. Karlan of Stanford University.
Karlan is the one who dragged the President’s 13-year-old son into the mire.
“Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article 2 [of the Constitution] does not give him the power to do anything he wants. The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
Doesn’t get much more arrogant
Gaetz revealed that Karlan donated $2,000 to Elizabeth Warren, $1,200 to Barack Obama, and $2,000 to Hillary Clinton. The prof also appeared on a Resistance podcast called “Versus Trump.” Karlan once wrote this:
“Liberals tend to cluster more, conservatives tend to spread out more — perhaps because they don’t even want to be around themselves.”
Ann of Althouse is a retired constitutional law prof at UW-Madison. Ms. Althouse blogs:
What I like about that Instapundit commenter quote — “It’s always a constitutional crisis when liberals don’t get what they want” — is that it seems to me that the real impeachable offense has always been that Donald Trump got himself elected.
Schools of liberal law
This hearing was never going to change minds … [It] seemed a microcosm of that political debate and of the impeachment process that, to the chagrin of Trump’s critics, has failed to transcend it.
