The lady was a former prosecutor asked to investigate bitcoin, she is now a general partner at a VC firm and co-heads $350 million in cryptos.
She had never heard of Bitcoin before and while investigating on BTC (to shut it down? lol) she understood Bitcoin and the blockchain tech , she even tells Bitcoin helped in her job to catch criminals

It started by:

...They said 'we have this perfect assignment for you'–there’s this thing called bitcoin and we need to investigate it...

...That was the first time I’d ever heard of bitcoin...

Quote
...Over the next few years Haun would go on to sit on the board of U.S. bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase and teach a class on cryptocurrency at Stanford Law School...

But

Quote
Any serious attempt made by the U.S. Department of Justice to shut down bitcoin inevitably came to naught

Finally, it turns out she understood BTC and she's in favor

Quote
it would have been akin to saying ‘let’s go prosecute cash.
