Trump Names Dershowitz As His Lead Impeachment Attorney, Schiff Gets Torched

Adam Schiff isn’t having a good day. Earlier in the week, Nancy Pelosi named the House Intel Chairman as the lead prosecutor who will be making the Democrats’ case at the Senate impeachment trial. Now, President Donald Trump has named Alan Dershowitz as his attorney who will be going “head to head” against Schiff. Dershowitz strikes fear into any legal team, and that’s why poor Adam is getting torched everywhere he looks. You’ll love this.

Americans love a good match-up. However, that’s not what we are going to get in the impeachment trial when the Democrat team led by Adam Schiff takes on the president’s team led by legendary attorney Alan Dershowitz.

While Trump is literally bringing the “dream team” of attorneys, the Democrats have Schiff, who used to be a mediocre prosecutor, at best. 

“Professor Dershowitz will present oral arguments at the Senate trial to address the constitutional arguments against impeachment and removal,” a spokesperson for the legal team said in a statement Friday. “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.”

Dershowitz, one of the country’s most high-profile constitutional lawyers, confirmed the news to CNBC. “The president asked me to do this, and the legal team asked me to do this,” he said.

Americans had a heyday torching poor Adam Schiff, letting him know Dershowitz is going to destroy him. 

“Let’s see: Speaker Pelosi sends in Schiff and Nadler and President Trump sends in Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr. That should tell you everything you need to know about the quality of the two cases,” tweeted former House Speaker Newt Gringrich.

“Trump impeachment team to have Dershowitz, Starr, Sekulow, etc while House team to have partisans Schiff, Nadler, etc? Oh, this is going to be a brutal beat down that even Collins, Romney, & Murkowski cannot stand against,” tweeted “AtlantaStu.”

“Alan Dershowitz will eat Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, and Chuck Schumer alive! Should be highly entertaining. It’s a legitimate trial now. Democrats worse nightmare!” tweeted Twitter user “John.”

Alan Dershowitz vs. @AdamSchiff Shifty Schiff–Shifty is about to have his butt handed to him!” tweeted David Little.

“Hey Jakey, your fear that the premier Constitutional attorney, Alan Dershowitz, will totally destroy this hoax is showing. It will be glorious to watch pervert Schiff reduced to rubble,” tweeted Twitter user “Kathy.”

“Adam Schiff vs Alan Dershowitz? That’s what legal experts call a ‘lay-up'” tweeted Reverend Calvin Barnes.

“Dershowitz is going to destroy Schiff and Nadler. Get your popcorn ready,” tweeted Brian Salter.

“Pat Cipollone, Jay Sekulow, Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr, Robert Ray, Pam Bondi, and Jane Raskin will be the President’s legal team in this sham impeachment trial. President Trump has an all-star team lined up for him! Schiff & Nadler are gonna look like fools against this team,” tweeted Frank Dinardo.

Looking forward to watching@AlanDersh make mince-meat of @RepAdamSchiff and @RepJerryNadler,” tweeted Joe Giganti.

President Donald Trump rounded out his team with other legal heavyweights. 

Ken Starr, a former appeals court judge who headed up the investigation into the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky scandals, has yet to confirm the news.

Robert Ray, an ex-federal prosecutor and independent counsel who took over for Starr in the Whitewater probe, is also expected to join the president’s legal team, CNN reports.

“You can confirm that I expect an announcement this afternoon,” Ray told CNBC of the report.

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow, President Trump’s personal attorney, will lead the defense team.

Nancy Pelosi named the Democrat team, and every single one called for Trump’s impeachment months before the Ukraine phone call.

Pelosi announced the seven House Democrats who will serve as impeachment managers in the trial, naming: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), and Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Val Demings (D-FL), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Jason Crow (D-CO), and Sylvia Garcia (D-TX). Schiff was appointed lead impeachment manager.

Start popping the popcorn as the Senate trial will commence this coming Tuesday. Not only does President Trump have the best legal minds in the country representing him, but he also has the Constitution on his side. This entire sham-impeachment has been truly one of the biggest farces ever perpetrated on the American people.
