The Democrats had a much-hyped witness testify before Congress yesterday in favor of the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
That witness, was Noah Feldman, who besides perjuring himself before Congress, has written what’s been called a ‘glowing defense’ of Shariah law.
“Islamic law offered the most liberal and humane legal principles available anywhere in the world,” wrote Feldman in an op-ed for the New York Times. He also claimed the West “needs Shariah and Islam.”
Among its judgments, currently under Sharia law women are blamed for being raped by a man and homosexuals are executed.
Feldman later wrote generously of the terrorist group ISIS, it’s adherence to Sharia law, and it’s desire to create “an Islamic utopia.”
“But it must be said that the Islamic State does try to ground all its practices in some Islamic basis, wrote Feldman. “In this sense, it is laying claim to producing an Islamic utopia — one that its followers believe will come as close as possible to the divinely ordained Shariah.”
Feldman is a professor at Harvard Law School.
Yesterday, Feldman perjured himself while testifying, arguing to Congressman Matt Gaetz that he was an “impeachment skeptic” until July 25, 2019.
“Until this call on July 25th I was an ‘impeachment skeptic.’ The call changed my mind sir, and for good reason,” said Feldman.
As journalist and lawyer Mike Cernovich has reported, Feldman has made many statements previously that make his testimony perjury.
“What the president did is an outrage. It’s impeachable, and obstruction of justice in the sense of being a ‘high crime and misdemeanor,’” said Feldman in 2017. That quote was printed in a Vice article titled “Trump Just Took a Big Step Closer to Impeachment.”
Cernovich, a constitutional law scholar, said “Feldman doesn’t qualify his statement. He doesn’t express skepticism or doubt. He is clear with his words: ‘What the president did is an outrage. It’s impeachable.’”
Many have called for perjury charges against Feldman, who committed the crime of lying to Congress, for which former Trump advisor Roger Stone was recently maliciously prosecuted.
“Feldman’s testimony shows that this entire process is dishonest and without any respect for the rule of law,” wrote Cernovich, whose report detailed numerous statements proving Feldman was not an impeachment ‘skeptic’ as he testified.
Another Democrat ‘star’ witness disgraced herself yesterday by attacking the 13-year-old son of the president, Barron Trump.
Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan, reportedly Hillary Clinton’s would-be nominee to the Supreme Court, made a joke at the expense of Barron Trump, stating to Congress, “So while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
First Lady Melania Trump fired back on Twitter, “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.”
Congressman Matt Gaetz lit into Karlan for her remark.
Karlan later gave a half-hearted apology in which she managed to take another shot at President Trump, saying “I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.”
