In Karlan’s opening statement, she responded to ranking member Republican Georgia Rep. Doug Collins who said that Karlan had not read all of the testimony delivered to the impeachment inquiry, declaring she was “insulted” by that suggestion.

Later, as a guest on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Gohmert conceded that Harvard Law School had perhaps provided some credible legal scholars, citing law professor Alan Dershowitz as an example.

“I have some respect for some people who went to Harvard law school or taught at Harvard Law School. You had Alan Dershowitz on again tonight. I mean he’s terrific … But we’re going to keep fighting because truth, justice, the American way has got to prevail.”
