Trump's defence team: Clinton's impeachment lawyer & celebrity lawyer

Jan 18, 2020 13:20 IST

Ken Starr, who was at the center of Bill Clinton's impeachment in the 1990s, and America's biggest celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz will be joining President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team, bringing the legal world's equivalent of rock stardom to the trial on Tuesday. The administration has yet to unveil the full team but has confirmed that White House counsel Pat Cipollone will be the lead lawyer, backed by Trump's personal attorney Jay Sekulow. Dershowitz's past clients include disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, NFL star OJ Simpson, film director Roman Polanski and former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson. Meanwhile, among the first to react to the news was Monica Lewinsky, whose affair with Clinton was the subject of Starr's investigation during the former President's impeachment.
