“The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he cannot make him a baron”
Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan is leaving her position on Facebook’s ‘oversight committee’ to join the civil rights division at the Department of Justice.
You may remember Karlan from her testimony at Trump’s first impeachment hearing in 2019.
Cristiano Lima reports at Politico:
Facebook oversight board member decamps for Biden DOJ
A law professor serving on Facebook’s independent oversight board is resigning her post to join the Justice Department’s civil rights division on Monday.
A notable transition: Pamela Karlan, a Stanford Law professor who was chosen as one of the group’s 20 original members, has been tapped to serve as principal deputy assistant attorney general in the civil rights division for the Biden administration, the board said.
“Pam Karlan’s legal and civil rights expertise played an important part in shaping the Board and we’re grateful for her contributions,” board spokesperson John Taylor said in a statement. “The Trustees and Board members congratulate Pam on her new role and wish her the very best.”
In 2009, Karlan was passed over as a possible U.S. Supreme Court nominee because she was too radical for Obama.
This is also the same woman who used her time at the impeachment hearings to mock Barron Trump:
Democrats’ Star Impeachment “Witness” Mocks 13-year-old Barron Trump in Hearings UPDATE/S: FLOTUS Responds
If Democrats hoped that today’s panel of anti-Trump law professors explaining impeachment to “deplorables” was going to sway public opinion, they may have miscalculated. Bigly.
Stanford law professor Pam Karlan decided the House impeachment hearings of the president of the United States was a great place to mock the president’s 13-year-old son.
Democrat "witness" Pamela Karlan is completely UNHINGED.

She later offered a non-apology apology:
Pamela Karlan: "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." pic.twitter.com/7lYiRWCKjw

She also once described how she crossed the street rather than walk by a Trump hotel:
Pamela Karlan can’t walk by Trump hotel without getting Triggered but don’t worry she’s totally not biased!
