UPDATE:  Alan Dershowitz Denies Being ‘Member’ of Trump Impeachment Team – Clarifies His Role Presenting Arguments.

It looks like we relied on a faulty report concerning Alan Dershowitz and his role in the Trump impeachment team.

Opinion| Mark Sidney|  One of the things I was looking forward to this week was learning just which attorneys President Trump would enlist to counsel and represent him in his trial in the Republican controlled Senate.

Well, as usually, team Trump did not disappoint.

The Gateway Pundit is reporting:

BREAKING THIS FRIDAY MORNING– Ken Starr, Robert Ray and Democrat law professor Alan Dershowitz were selected to defend President Trump at the Senate impeachment trial starting next week.


Ken Starr is famous fr having lead the investigation and impeachment of HRC’s husband, President Bill Clinton.

According to Wikipedia, Starr:

Kenneth Winston Starr (born July 21, 1946) is an American lawyer who has also been a United States circuit judge and U.S. solicitor general. He is best known for heading an investigation of members of the Clinton administration.

Starr served as a federal Court of Appeals judge and as solicitor general for George H. W. Bush. He received the most public attention for his tenure as independent counsel while Bill Clinton was U.S. president. Starr was initially appointed to investigate the suicide of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster and the Whitewater real estate investments of Bill Clinton. The three-judge panel charged with administering the Independent Counsel Act later expanded the inquiry into numerous areas including suspected perjury about Bill Clinton’s sexual activity with Monica Lewinsky. After more than four years of investigation, Starr filed the Starr Report, which alleged that Bill Clinton lied about the existence of the affair during a sworn deposition. The allegation led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton and the five-year suspension of Clinton’s law license.’

Alan Dershowitz is an author andProfessor at Harvard Law School, he also represented OJ Simpson in his infamous murder trial.’

Wikipedia explains:

Alan Morton Dershowitz (/ˈdɜːrʃəwɪts/; born September 1, 1938) is an American lawyer and academic. He is a scholar of United States constitutional law and criminal law.  He has also been described as a noted civil libertarian. He began his teaching career at Harvard Law School where, in 1967, at the age of 28, he became the youngest full professor of law in its history. He held the Felix Frankfurter professorship there from 1993 until his retirement in December 2013, and has been a regular media contributor, political commentator, and legal analyst. He is also a prominent voice on the Arab–Israeli conflict and has written a number of books on the subject.

Dershowitz has been involved in a number of high-profile legal cases. As a criminal appellate lawyer, he won 13 of the 15 murder and attempted murder cases which he had handled, and has represented a series of celebrity clients, including Mike TysonPatty Hearst, and Jim Bakker. His most notable cases included the successful appeal of Claus von Bülow‘s 1982 conviction for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny, and the 1995 O. J. Simpson murder trial, in which he served on the legal “Dream Team“, alongside Johnnie Cochran and F. Lee Bailey, as an appellate adviser.’

Dershowitz has long been a defender of President Trump in the media.

TGWP went on to explain: ‘The House Judiciary Committee voted 23 to 17 along party lines on Friday to approve two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

After several weeks of threats and testimony the Democrats accused President Trump of two non-crimes:
1.) Abuse of power
2.) Obstructing Congress

In December Harvard Attorney Alan Dershowitz told Sean Hannity that the recent decision by SCOTUS to review President Trump’s legal arguments against Congress’s request for his financial records nullified Democrats’ “obstructing Congress” charges against the president.

Dershowitz is one of the last remaining honest Democrats.’

‘Alan Dershowitz: Look, the most important development happened TODAY. The Supreme Court of the United States absolutely pulled the rug out of part two of the impeachment referral by granting certiorari, by granting review in a case where Trump challenged a congressional subpoena! And the Supreme Court said we’re going to hear this case!… Think of what that message is – It’s Trump was right!’
