Stanford Law School Professor Pamela Karlan appeared before Congress on Wednesday as part of the House impeachment hearings. The law professor warned Congress that if they did not take proper action against Donald Trump, then they would be allowing this type of unlawful and unethical behavior to continue with future presidents.
“Because this is an abuse that cuts to the heart of Democracy, you need to ask yourselves,” Karlan said, “if you don’t impeach a president who has done what this president has done — or at least you don’t investigate and then impeach if you conclude that the House Select Committee’s findings are correct — then what you’re saying is, it’s fine to go ahead and do this again.”
Karlan suggested that there is a “clear and present danger” to the U.S. election system.
“It’s your responsibility that all Americans get to vote in a free and fair election next November,” she added.
