On Monday, President Donald J. Trump’s lawyers who are representing him in the upcoming impeachment witch hunt beginning on Tuesday released a statement slamming the proceedings as “absurd” and commenting on the Senate’s next steps to ensure due process.
The statement reads, “President Trump and his counsel are pleased that there was bipartisan support on how to structure the impeachment trial. We appreciate that Senate Republican leadership stood strong for due process and secured a structure that is consistent with past precedent. This process will provide us with an opportunity to explain to Senators why it is absurd and unconstitutional to hold an impeachment trial against a private citizen.”
According to multiple reports, Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Lee Zeldin of New York, Elise Stefanik of New York, Mike Johnson of Louisiana, Matt Gaetz of Florida, and Andy Biggs of Arizona will take part in defending Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
