Trump Lawyers to Senate: Reject ‘Defective' Impeachment Articles to Protect the ‘Will of the American People'
Nicholas Kamm/AFP/GettyOn the eve of the Senate's impeachment trial, President Trump's attorneys outlined a defense strategy that seeks to turn House Democrats' articles of impeachment on their head, arguing it was not the president who abused his power, but the House, and it was not the House's duty that was unjustly obstructed, but the president's.

In a fiery, six-page letter released on Saturday, Trump's lead lawyers—Jay Sekulow and Pat Cipollone—argue that the Senate should not only reject the articles of impeachment but that those articles are blatantly unconstitutional and violate the will of the American people.

The articles, the attorneys claim, are "defective in their entirety… They are the product of invalid proceedings that flagrantly denied the president any due process rights. They rest on dangerous distortions of the Constitution that would do lasting damage to our structure of government."

Under Secretary Glawe attends 2019 World Summit on Counter-Terrorism
WASHINGTON - Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) and Chief Intelligence Officer David J. Glawe traveled to Herzliya, Israel this week to provide keynote remarks at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism's (ICT's) 2019 World Summit on Counter-Terrorism. ICT's annual conference is among the world's most influential forums for experts in the fields of intelligence, defense, policing, and security studies, attracting more than 1,400 leaders from over 65 nations.

In addition to advancing global collaboration and facilitating new partnerships, this year's conference commemorated decades of international cooperation following the tragic attacks on September 11, 2001. Under Secretary Glawe called upon this shared history on Tuesday in an address to a memorial ceremony for the victims of 9/11 and terrorism worldwide.

"Terrorism is terrorism - whether domestic or international - and violent threats to our freedom and the basic tenants to our free society must be eliminated," stated Under Secretary Glawe. "The necessity to share information between international partners is critical to preventing future terrorist attacks. We must continue to work to raise our intelligence capacities to identify and mitigate terrorist threats."

Under Secretary Glawe's remarks further underscored how enhanced collaboration, both at home and abroad, can aid in the early identification and mitigation of terrorist activities. Amongst Under Secretary Glawe were the Executive Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Jay Tabb, Director of the Office of Counter-Terrorism for the United Nations Dr. Jehangir Khan, Ambassador-at-Large and Coordinator for Counterterrorism Nathan Sales from the State Department, and Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan in Israel. The ICT annual conference serves as an excellent forum to share innovative ideas for policymakers and senior officials to fight against terrorism.
