As my friend Rosie Tennent. says, “The articles are illegal they are not constitutional they don’t meet the criteria.”
I want a GOP leader with the balls of a Democrat.
McConnell – dismiss impeachment as groundless. Because they are.

Trump defense team for impeachment trial to include Ken Starr, Alan Dershowitz
By Yaron Steinbuchm NY Post, January 17, 2020 |
President Trump’s legal team in his impeachment trial will include former independent counsel Ken Starr, his successor Robert Ray and famed defense attorney Alan Dershowitz, according to reports.
The three seasoned veterans are expected to join a team headed by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and outside attorney Jay Sekulow, who plan to deliver statements on Trump’s behalf on the Senate floor, CNN reported.
The team also will include Pam Bondi, the former Florida attorney general who is serving as special adviser to the president for impeachment, according to The AP.
Dershowitz “will present oral arguments at the Senate trial to address the constitutional arguments against impeachment and removal,” a spokesman for the president’s legal team told CNN.
“While Professor Dershowitz is nonpartisan 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,” the team said in a statement.
“He is participating in this impeachment trial to defend the integrity of the Constitution and to prevent the creation of a dangerous constitutional precedent,” it added.
The president has relied on Dershowitz, a constitutional lawyer, for advice throughout special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and during his impeachment.
Starr is the hard-charging prosecutor who led the Whitewater investigation that led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
He was succeeded by Ray at the Office of Independent Counsel during the Clinton administration.
