Trump Creates Legal Defense Team That Should Have House Dems Concerned
Trump is preparing his defense to take on the House Dems partisan articles of impeachment and he is coming out swinging with heavy hitters on his defense team. He has hired Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz to help him combat the House Dems attempt at ousting him.
“Ken Starr, the former independent counsel who led the Whitewater investigation into then-President Bill Clinton in the mid-1990s, and attorney Alan Dershowitz will join President Trump’s impeachment defense team, Fox News has learned.
The prominent lawyers are among several attorneys added to the team as the president’s impeachment trial gets underway, with proceedings kicking off Thursday and moving into full swing next Tuesday.
The team will also include former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi, former federal prosecutor Robert Ray, and Jane Raskin, who was part of the president’s legal team during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. Both Starr and Dershowitz are former Fox News contributors.
Fox News reported earlier this week that White House Counsel Pat Cipollone will take the lead on the president’s defense team in the Senate trial, along with Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow. Cipollone deputies Michael Purpura and Patrick Philbin will also work on the team.”
Watch The Clip Below.
The House Dems are complaining that they want witnesses called, but they have no real say in the matter as it is up to Senate. McConnell claims they are going to go by the 1999 standard. So by that standard, they don’t call in witnesses initially.
There is still much to be decided when it comes to handling the impeachment process. A big part of this depends on how flimsy the case is. From what has been presented through the media there is a lot of hearsay. If the case is as evidence lacking as has been reported then the Senate may vote to dismiss the case altogether and they will never have to call in any witnesses. But we will have to see how the Senate reacts and hopefully, they can finish it up quickly so our politicians can get back to serving us.
