Trump Stumps Democrats by Hiring Two Legal Legends to Impeachment Team

The time is nigh, my fellow countrymen:  Impeachment is upon us.

There’ll be no more hemming and hawing from the obstructive Democratic Party in the House, nor will there be any more lengthy procedural roll call votes, ad nauseam, by Republicans looking to send viewers at home searching for the remote.  No, we’re in the thick of it now.  Dead center on the mid-rare filet of this American nightmare.

We know that it would take a miracle for the Democrats to come out on top in this scrap.  Mitch McConnell and his GOP-led Senate are poised for a deafening and swift exoneration of President Trump, and it there appears to be no path to remove him from office – barring some unforeseen and truly unprecedented happenstance not yet imagined.

Now, as if to put the proverbial nail in the Democrats’ coffin, Trump is bringing in two of the legal world’s most prestigious litigators to try the case.

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 additions Friday bring experience in the politics of impeachment as well as constitutional law to the team, which faced a busy weekend of deadlines for legal briefs before opening arguments begin Tuesday even as more evidence rolled in.

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.

Should the Democrats try any of their patented political trickery on these two, retribution will be both quick and everlasting.
