Trump to add Dershowitz, Ken Starr to impeachment defense team
By Morgan Chalfant and Brett Samuels - 01/17/20 10:19 AM EST

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.

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.

Damn good choices.

Would it be too provocative to say Trump hires only the best?

It would definitely be untrue.... considering all of the "bad hires" (Omarosa?  Scaramucci?  Sessions?)...

so why would you want to lie?

No.   Not really.   I would have said that Trump tries and seeks to hire only the best.   Which is true.

Now, there’s a rousing campaign slogan Trump should have used: “I’ll try to hire the best.”  :smokin:

Well, realistically.... that's a no-brainer....since most would-be presidents or presidents would naturally try to hire the best.   But claiming that you always do hire the best is just setting yourself up for failure.... considering that you have no control over that employee or staffer, ultimately.  If it turns out that they suck at their job, it is what it is.   As far as him hiring Omarosa.... I knew from the get go she would not only suck, but would turn on him like she did.  That too was a "no-brainer", IMO.   Oh well...

All liberals.  He has one of the best sitting in the Senate chambers; Ted Cruz.  Dershowitz himself called him brilliant.  It really is a shame.

If cruz were to be his lawyer he would not be able to vote. Given the current ratio of R v. D loosing Cruz would give to much power to Romney, Murkowski and Collins.

Sure, Dershowitz is a self identified liberal. But, he also identifies as a constitutional liberal. And he has a track record calling out democrats when they’re wrong on the constitution. As in this case.

Beyond that, there’s a significant chasm between America’s liberals, and leftists who themselves support the goals of the international Left and the UN globalists.

No, they're not all "liberals".  Each fills a gap in the team very well....including Dershowitz.  He adds what Pelosi's team has so sorely lacked:  a bi-partisan agreement that the Schitt show lacks all Constitutional credibility and reduces impeachment of a President to what the Founders tried to prevent:  Using impeachment as a political weapon.

So was Jonathan Turley. Being an honest human being well versed in Constitutional law is the only qualification to be successful in this job.

The only other one besides Starr and Dershowitz that I am familiar with is Bondi -- not a fan.

Turley's an honest, old fashioned liberal. Not the variety of lying ends-justifies-the-means type that predominates today.
