Prof. Pamela Karlan is a hero to liberals today after her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. They were thrilled with her unbiased, no-nonsense, straight-down-the-middle stance on President Trump’s impeachment … right.
As Twitchy noted, Rep. Matt Gaetz had the opportunity to ask the four law professors if any one of them had “any personal knowledge of a single material fact in the Schiff report,” and of course, none of the “witnesses” raised their hand.
As CNN saw it, Republican Congressman Gaetz was attempting to paint Karlan as a liberal elite with his questioning. You could almost say he pounced on her testimony.

In his questioning, Gaetz attempted to paint Karlan as a liberal elite biased against conservatives.
Gaetz first noted that Karlan had previously given money to Democrats, including $1,200 to Barack Obama, $2,000 to Hillary Clinton and $1,000 to Elizabeth Warren. Karlan did not dispute these figures, but later noted that she has a constitutional right protected by the First Amendment to give money to candidates.
Gaetz then pressed Karlan over her appearance at an event affiliated with a podcast called Versus Trump, during which she said that conservatives generally spread out, geographically, “perhaps because they don’t even want to be around themselves,” Gaetz noted.
It’s a good thing Gaetz failed in his attempt, or else people might have thought that the Stanford law professor really was a liberal elite with contempt for conservatives.
aaaaaaaaaand, he succeeded.

Attempted?! She basically silenced with one question. She had no reply. Facts matter. Not feelings.

Wow, after watching this clip, we’re beginning to wonder if Karlan really is biased against conservatives:
