Trump Just Picked Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz for His Senate Trial — and It’s Already Humiliating for Them All

President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team will include Kenn Starr and Alan Dershowitz, multiple outlets confirmed on Friday.

On a surface level, the picks make reasonable sense. Dershowitz is known for being a Democratic-leaning and notable constitutional scholar, who has become a repeat defender of Trump since his election. Starr was the prosecutor who brought the impeachment case against President Bill Clinton, so he knows the terrain well.

But on any further inspection, the reasoning behind the choices falls apart. And as news of their selection spread on Friday, several developments and arguments emerged that reveal the poor optics of Trump using Dershowitz and Starr as his defenders.

For many months now, we’ve known that presidential attorney Rudy Giuliani worked extremely hard, and was ultimately successful at, removing former ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch from her post to pave the way for an investigation into Joe Biden that would benefit Donald Trump. We know this because Giuliani has freely admitted as much on more than one occasion. “I believed that I needed Yovanovitch out of the way,” he told the New Yorker. “She was going to make the investigations difficult for everybody,” he added, explaining that he’d compiled a dossier on Yovanovitch as part of a smear campaign against her, which he turned over to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the F.B.I., and disgraced journalist John Solomon. What he hadn’t known until last night was that his business associate Lev Parnas, the guy who Trump reportedly recruited for the Ukraine plot at a White House party, was also working his connections to oust Yovanovitch, as revealed by disturbing evidence released by Democrats. Per the New York Times:

Trump Still Wants to Take Away Your Healthcare – but After the Election

The Department of Justice sees no need for the Supreme Court to hear a hugely important Obamacare lawsuit before November.

he Trump administration would very much prefer that Americans go to the polls this November with zero updates on the lawsuit that would overturn the Affordable Care Act and revoke health insurance from millions of people.

At least, that’s the implicit message in the Trump administration’s response to the coalition of Democratic-led states and members of the House which asked the Supreme Court to review the Obamacare lawsuit during the high court’s current term, which ends this summer.

To back up for a second: Yes, there’s an active lawsuit threatening Obamacare. After Congressional Republicans tried and failed to repeal the landmark law without a replacement in 2017 (remember John McCain’s thumbs down?), they decided to zero-out the penalty for not having health insurance in the massive tax bill passed in December 2017.

Words really do have consequences.

According to a new study reported by The Washington Post, counties that hosted political rallies with Donald Trump as the headliner in 2016 saw a 226 percent increase in hate crimes over comparable counties that did not host such a rally in subsequent months.

The three researchers behind the analysis, who are all professors or graduate students of political science at the University of North Texas, aimed to find out whether Trump’s divisive rhetoric on the campaign trail played a role in emboldening white nationalists. Using data from the Anti-Defamation League that maps out reported incidents of hate crimes, the authors designed a metric to measure how Trump’s campaign rallies correlated with incidences of hate crimes.

Their findings: “Trump’s rhetoric may encourage hate crimes.”
