This is a juxtaposition of delusion and not giving a f%$# that positively buggers the mind:
President Trump enlisted the former independent counsel Ken Starr and the celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz to join his defense team on Friday, turning to two veterans of politically charged legal cases to secure his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial that gets underway in earnest next week.Dershowitz did not just represent Jeffrey Epstein, he is alleged to have have participated in the rape of under-age girls as a part of his ongoing relationship with the now dead financier.
Mr. Starr, whose investigation into President Bill Clinton led to his impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice in 1998, will be joined by Robert W. Ray, his successor as independent counsel, who negotiated a settlement with Mr. Clinton as he left the White House that included a fine and the suspension of his law license.
Mr. Dershowitz, a Harvard Law School professor emeritus who became famous as a defense counsel for high-profile defendants like O.J. Simpson, Claus von Bülow and Mike Tyson, will have a more limited role, presenting oral arguments at the Senate trial “to address the constitutional arguments against impeachment and removal,” the legal team said in a statement.
In choosing the three prominent lawyers, the president assembled what he regards as an all-star television legal team, enlisting some of his favorite defenders from Fox News. But each of them brings his own baggage. Mr. Dershowitz represented Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender. Mr. Starr was pushed out as a university president because of his handling of sexual misconduct by the football team. And Mr. Ray was once charged with stalking a former girlfriend.
And we need to remember that Starr was fired for covering up for the, "Ever present football player rapist," at Baylor.
While there may be a bit of method to this madness, it certainly DOES provide a strong signal of in group solitary to movement Republicans.
I would not that the impeachment will clearly be a complete sh%$ show, and Monica Lewinski's reaction to all this just won the internet:
