President Trump plans to add three seasoned lawyers to his legal defense team, people familiar with the matter said, including Kenneth Starr, the hard-charging prosecutor whose work led to the country’s last impeachment trial.
The list also includes Alan Dershowitz, the constitutional lawyer, and Robert Ray, Starr’s successor at the Office of Independent Counsel during the Clinton administration.
The three are expected to join a legal team headed by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and outside attorney Jay Sekulow, who are still expected to deliver statements on the President’s behalf on the Senate floor.
Even the liberal Alan Dershowitz! I’m sure he can massage the facts to make all the various trysts with Russia barely legal.
As for Ken Starr, here’s a subtle plot detail in our story: The investiture of Starr as Baylor’s president, where he was paid $4.8 million a year to cover up the fact that the school’s athletic department was a rape factory, was blessed by a keynote address from Even the Liberal Yale Law Professor Stephen Carter.
Oh it’s all a cozy little racket.
