Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee used her time to ask Stanford Law School Professor Pamela Karlan for her thoughts about the strength of the records from Robert Mueller’s report. Karlan went on from there to say the Ukraine scandal fits into Trump’s “pattern of behavior” and that the evidence suggests Trump pursued a quid pro quo when he asked President Volodymyr Zelensky for a “favor.”
“What comparisons can we make between kings that the framers were afraid of and the president’s conduct today?” Sheila Jackson Lee asked Pamela Karlan.
Karlan response: “Kings could do no wrong because the king’s word was law. Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article Two does not give him the power to do anything he wants. I will give you one example that shows the difference between him and a king, which is, the Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility. While the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”

I wholeheartedly agree with Melania Trump and the White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham:
Classless move by a Democratic “witness”. Prof Karlan uses a teenage boy who has nothing to do with this joke of a hearing (and deserves privacy) as a punchline. And what’s worse, it’s met by laughter in the hearing room. What is being done to this country is no laughing matter.

These are the people that are teaching our children on taxpayer $ Is there any mystery why Dems want to give away free college? MARXIST PROFESSORS have been carrying the water for Dems the only difference is we’re seeing it play out on national TV instead of a classroom
