Statement from White House Press Secretary Announcing President’s Senate Trial Counsel

Today, President Donald J. Trump announced his Senate trial counsel, led by Counsel to the President Pat A. Cipollone and Jay Alan Sekulow. Mr. Cipollone and Mr. Sekulow will be joined by the following attorneys:

Kenneth Starr, Former Solicitor General of the United States, Former Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and Former Independent Counsel

Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, Harvard Law School

Pam Bondi, Special Advisor to the President and Former Attorney General of Florida

Jane Serene Raskin, Private Counsel to President Donald J. Trump

Eric D. Herschmann, Kasowitz, Benson, Torres LLP

Robert Ray, Partner, Thompson and Knight, LLP, and Former Independent Counsel.

President Trump has done nothing wrong and is confident that this team will defend him, the voters, and our democracy from this baseless, illegitimate impeachment. The Articles of Impeachment House Democrats have adopted threaten grave and lasting damage to our institutions and to our Nation. The President looks forward to the end of this partisan and unconstitutional impeachment. It’s time for Congress to turn its attention back to the work of the American people and leave sham political investigations like this one in the past.
