One day I will laugh about this, but today is not that day, I’m too disgusted. As expected, Donald Trump has hired “television lawyers” an area of legal specialization that he invented, and which is not found in any state bar directory in the country, to defend him at his impeachment trial. Visibility on the tube is Trump’s only qualification to save his hide legally. And yes, it’s shaping up to be exactly the circus that you expect, and then some. Fox News contributors Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr and Robert Ray, of Whitewater fame, are set to go before the cameras. Needless to say, they’re framing their participation in the loftiest to terms. CNN:
In a statement, the legal team said, “While Professor Dershowitz is non-partisan when it comes to the Constitution — he opposed the impeachment of President Bill Clinton and voted for Hillary Clinton — he believes the issues at stake go to the heart of our enduring Constitution.”–
“He is participating in this impeachment trial to defend the integrity of the Constitution and to prevent the creation of a dangerous constitutional precedent,” the legal team said.–Starr and Ray are expected to play a constitutional and historic role during the proceedings to support Cipollone and Sekulow.
