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.

Trump, the vulnerable senator from Arizona snapped back: "You're a liberal hack—I'm not talking to you. You're a liberal hack."

Regardless of whether new post-House impeachment revelations are introduced in the Senate trial, the drip-drip-drip has created a lose-lose proposition for Republicans who face tough electoral crosswinds in 2020. They can defend the indefensible, or they can risk invoking the wrath of their president. (Clearly, McSally has decided her best bet is to avoid the latter.)

But as evidence mounts, McSally also risks alienating Arizonans who elected a maverick named John McCain and aren't looking to send a Trump toady to Washington.
