"Ken Starr, Dershowitz join Trump’s impeachment defense team Ken Starr, the former independent counsel who led the Whitewater investigation into then-President Bill Clinton, and attorney Alan Dershowitz will join President Trump’s impeachment defense team, Fox News has learned. The prominent lawyers were among several attorneys added to the team as the president's impeachment trial gets underway. The team will also include Pam Bondi, the former Florida attorney general. Fox News reported earlier this week that White House Counsel Pat Cipollone will take the lead on the president’s defense team in the Senate trial, along with Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow. Cipollone deputies Michael Purpura and Patrick Philbin will also work on the team. Dershowitz confirmed his role in a series of tweets on Friday, saying, he would "present oral arguments at the Senate trial to address the constitutional arguments against impeachment and removal." https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ken-starr-dershowitz-join-trumps-impeachment-defense-team "
