While the impeachment farce continues and hapless Democrats deal with the problem of having no case against the POTUS, those same Dem’s were dealt another blow today as a presidential move significantly underlines the Democrat self-caused political destruction.
President Donald Trump has assembled a made-for-TV legal team for his Senate trial that includes household names like Ken Starr, the prosecutor whose investigation two decades ago resulted in the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said he will deliver constitutional arguments meant to shield Trump from allegations that he abused his power.
“The two new Trump attorneys are already nationally known both for their involvement in some of the more consequential legal dramas of recent American history and for their regular appearances on Fox News, the president’s preferred television network.
“Dershowitz is a constitutional expert whose expansive views of presidential powers echo those of Trump. Starr is a veteran of partisan battles in Washington, having led the investigation into Clinton’s affair with a White House intern that brought about the president’s impeachment by the House. Clinton was acquitted at his Senate trial; the same outcome Trump is expecting from the Republican-led chamber.”
Now, taken from a purely legal perspective these additions to Trump’s team demonstrate considerable knowledge, power, insight and skill possessed by very few, if any, practitioners in today’s courtroom environment. This writer, however, believes there’s another aspect of the team expansion which indicates an almost certain decision in the POTUS’s favor.
While both of these individuals could most certainly recover should the POTUS lose his case in the Senate, this writer believes that neither attorney would willingly choose to face that kind of consequence. And thus by the simple virtue of these two esteemed barristers stepping up on this kind of presidential behalf, clearly portends a complete and spotless acquittal.
That’s it for today folks,
