    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday hammered the lawyers leading President Trump's impeachment defense, saying they've trampled on the Constitution while questioning how they've been allowed to keep their jobs. "I don't know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they're making," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. Pelosi was responding largely to comments made Wednesday evening by Alan Dershowitz, a celebrity lawyer on Trump's legal team, who asserted on the Senate floor that presidents cannot be impeached for actions designed to boost their reelections — if they believe that retaining a grip on the White...

    Deputy White House Counsel Patrick Philbin shredded House Intelligence Committee Chairman and lead Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) for his contact with the Ukranian whistleblower, which led to the impeachment inquiry, and eventually the current trial. As it currently sits, we are still in the dark about what role Schiff and his staff played in the whistleblower's inquiry. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) presented the question on behalf of Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO). "Is it true that Shawn Misco and Abigail Grace and the alleged whistleblower were employed by or detailed by the National Security Council in...

    Jennifer Rubin, the Washington Post writer and MSNBC contributor who still claims to be a conservative, made a fool of herself once again on Twitter. Last week she swooned over Adam Schiff’s legal skills during the Democrats’ arguments against Trump in the Senate trial. “This is the most brilliant legal presentation I have heard,” she tweeted. “None comes close. The tone, the facts, the anticipated defenses. I am in awe.” Rubin couldn’t help but outdo herself by taking her Trump Derangement Syndrome to the next level Tuesday evening. In order to convince herself the Trump defense team was failing hard,...

    President Trump’s legal team on Sunday previewed what will be the meat of their forthcoming defense this week by saying that even if all the allegations Democrats laid out last week were true, they would still fall short of “impeachable” offenses under the U.S. Constitution. After House Democrats got their chance to make the case against Mr. Trump last week, the focus now turns to the defense as Republicans eye an end to a Senate impeachment trial that could see a vote to acquit the president by the end of the week. “Even if the factual allegations are true —...

    Video at link. After Trump's legal team quickly and efficiently destroyed the Democrat's so-called impeachment case on Saturday, CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin was reduced to complaining about the whiteness of the president's legal defenders. Toobin began his in-depth legal analysis by stating, "White House and white people." "This is a lesson in the diversity of the two parties," Toobin declared. "You look at the House managers. It was almost evenly divided between men and women. You had two African Americans. You had a Hispanic. It was all white men today." The chief legal analyst admitted that there are...
  • Media-savvy Jay Sekulow set to hold his own on Trump's big-name legal team

    Flanked by an independent counsel whose name is already etched into impeachment history and a marquee constitutional scholar who has stood beside some of the most notorious defendants in a generation, most lawyers would run the risk of being overshadowed. But Jay Sekulow, one of President Donald Trump's personal attorneys since his first few months in office, is just as accustomed to the spotlight. Having weathered the former special counsel's probe into Russian election interference, Sekulow has also proven himself adept at waging battles on behalf of the President -- even when working off less-than-ideal facts. Sekulow will serve as...

    The White House is offering a fiery legal response to the articles of impeachment, in an executive summary of a legal brief obtained by NPR. Decrying a "rigged process" that is "brazenly political," President Trump's legal team accuses House Democrats of "focus-group testing various charges for weeks" and says that "all that House Democrats have succeeded in proving is hat the President did absolutely nothing wrong." They sum up the impeachment as "a dangerous perversion of the Constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemn."

  • Giuliani: Yes, Trump Will Answer Questions From Mueller Investigators

    There’s been a lot of movement on the legal front concerning President Trump and Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Last night, The Washington Post reported that there was a tense meeting between the president’s lawyers and Mueller in which Trump’s legal team said there was no obligation for them to arrange time for questions from investigators. Mueller politely reminded them that he could just subpoena the president. Now, we have reports that former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who joined the president’s legal team last month, said Trump could be sitting down with the Mueller investigation to answer questions for a two-to-three hour...

    From the article: In an interview with The Post, former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giulani — who is now serving as Trump’s lead personal attorney dealing with the special counsel — said the president did not force Cobb to leave. “It was just time for him to go, but he’s still going to be available to us,” Giuliani said. He added that Jay Sekulow, another member of Trump’s legal team, “had the most to do with it.” “Jay felt he need someone that more aggressive,” Giuliani said. “That’s not a criticism of Ty, but it’s just about how we’re...

    Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a combative former prosecutor and longtime ally of President Trump, told The Washington Post on Thursday that he has joined the president’s legal team dealing with the ongoing special counsel probe. “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in an interview. Giuliani, who joins a legal team that has struggled to recruit new members to its ranks, said he has been speaking with Trump for weeks...
