The additions to the Trump defense team come from both sides of the political spectrum and add a bipartisan flair to the defense.
President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team will include Ken Starr, whose investigation led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, whose clients have included notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The Trump team choices came to light as the impeachment trial is set to begin in earnest next Tuesday in the Senate.
“The president asked me to do this, and the legal team asked me to do this,” Dershowitz said Friday morning in an interview with CNBC.
Dershowitz said he will be presenting oral arguments in the Senate “to address the constitutional arguments against impeachment and removal.”
