Heads Up, Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr Are Here From Fox News To Save The Constitution

One day I will laugh about this, but today is not that day, I’m too disgusted. As expected, Donald Trump has hired “television lawyers” an area of legal specialization that he invented, and which is not found in any state bar directory in the country, to defend him at his impeachment trial. Visibility on the tube is Trump’s only qualification to save his hide legally. And yes, it’s shaping up to be exactly the circus that you expect, and then some. Fox News contributors Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr and Robert Ray, of Whitewater fame, are set to go before the cameras. Needless to say, they’re framing their participation in the loftiest to terms. CNN:

In a statement, the legal team said, “While Professor Dershowitz is non-partisan 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.”
“He is participating in this impeachment trial to defend the integrity of the Constitution and to prevent the creation of a dangerous constitutional precedent,” the legal team said.
Starr and Ray are expected to play a constitutional and historic role during the proceedings to support Cipollone and Sekulow.
Now this is great. We’ve got the Vince Foster and Whitewater crowd represented here, with Starr and Ray, respectively, plus Alan Dershowitz contributes all the élan and style that one would expect from associating with the likes of Jeffrey Epstein. The shade of Epstein is riding high, here. Bear in mind that both Starr and Dershowitz negotiated the sweetheart deal in Florida that kept Epstein out of prison when he was accused of the molestation of dozens of teenage girls, and Trump is hoping that they will work the same magic for him. And we look forward to Dershowitz keeping his shorts on, while we fondly recall that Starr was ousted as president of Baylor University in 2016 after an investigation of his handling of sexual assaults against football players was brought into question. This is shaping up to be a day at the political zoo, with these specimens in charge. Invite clowns, expect a circus.

Well those Democrats need to get out their big boy pants and go after these clowns. What I hate is that the Democrats play this timid turn the other cheek. This reminds me of a fight scene in the Fifth Element movie. Bruce Willis is fighting the aliens. One decides he wants to negotiate. While he’s talking Bruce shoots him. Then he asks the rest. Anyone else want to negotiate? That’s what republicans do. Dammit Democrats ask them if they want to negotiate?
