Trump Taps Fox News Legal Panel to Defend Him in Impeachment Trial
AP ImagesPresident Donald Trump has officially assembled his legal defense for the Senate impeachment trial, and much of it looks like a Fox primetime line-up.

This is, at least in part, by design. Two sources close to the president say that he's routinely stressed the importance of how his legal defenders perform on cable news—a common metric for virtually any Trump official with a public facing job.  

On Friday, Team Trump announced Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr, the independent counsel during President Bill Clinton's impeachment trial, former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi as well as  Robert Ray, who succeeded Starr at the Office of the Independent Counsel during the Clinton administration, and Jane Raskin, who helped defend Trump during the Mueller probe, would join White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Trump's personal attorney Jay Sekulow in defending the president on the Senate floor.

"They Must Conduct a Full and Fair Trial": Senators Sworn in for Historic Trump Impeachment Trial
For just the third time in history, the U.S. Senate has opened a trial to determine if a sitting president should be removed from office. The Senate trial comes a month after the House impeached President Trump for pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who will preside over the impeachment trial in the Senate, later swore in senators who will serve as jurors when the trial officially begins on Tuesday. This comes as more information is coming to light about the actions of President Trump and his associates. On Thursday, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office said the White House Office of Management and Budget violated federal law by withholding $400 million in aid money to Ukraine even though the funds had been allocated by Congress. We speak with attorney John Bonifaz, co-founder and president of Free Speech for People and co-author of "The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump."
