"You know who else has donated to Democrats? @RealDonaldTrump," Jayapal tweeted after Gaetz pressed the three witnesses invited by Democrats about their past donations. 

Asked by the Florida Republican whether he donated to former President Obama, University of North Carolina law professor Michael Gerhardt said, "My family did, yes."

Stanford University law professor Pamela Karlan confirmed or did not contest that she has donated $1,000 to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), $1,200 to former President Obama and $2,000 to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who ran against President Trump in 2016.

The professors were part of a panel of three witnesses invited by Democrats and one invited by Republicans who testified about whether President Trump's dealings with Ukraine rose to the level of impeachment.
