BREAKING: Trump to add two well-known lawyers to impeachment defense team
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
President Trump’s impeachment defense team for his upcoming Senate trial will include Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr, sources confirmed to The Hill on Friday.
Starr worked as independent counsel investigating former President Bill Clinton on allegations that ultimately led to his impeachment. Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor who opposed Clinton’s impeachment, has defended clients such as Jeffrey Epstein and O.J. Simpson.
The article goes on to state the following:
Starr and Dershowitz have made regular television appearances defending Trump against the House case for impeachment throughout the impeachment proceeding, a key factor for a president who values media savvy.
The report states that another attorney, Robert Ray, who followed Starr as independent council, will also play a key role, joining White House counsel Pat Cipollone, his deputies, and Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow in defending the president in the impeachment trial.
President Trump quoted Dershowitz in a Twitter post Friday morning. He wrote:
“The GOA got it exactly backwards. Here’s what they said. The law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities to those Congress has enacted into law. It’s exactly the opposite. The Constitution does not allow Congress to substitute its own priorities for the foreign policies of the President.” @AlanDersh Alan Dershowitz @seanhannity @FoxNews
“They do what the House asks. The Swamp!” Trump added.
