- The Washington Post divulged that House Democratic managers will argue the Senate must “eliminate the threat that the President poses to America’s national security” as per a 111-page legal brief they filed Saturday. The brief lays out their impeachment case against President Trump. With opening arguments in the Senate trial to begin Wednesday afternoon, the seven House managers had until 5 p.m. Saturday to file their brief describing why Trump should be convicted and removed from office. The White House defense team has until Noontime Monday to file its argument why he should be acquitted. Democrats assert “The evidence overwhelmingly establishes that POTUS is guilty of both,” the managers wrote. “The only remaining question is whether the members of the Senate will accept and carry out the responsibility placed on them by the Framers of our Constitution and their constitutional Oaths.” Yet Trumps’s legal team released a seven-page response to the charges against Trump, which it filed shortly after the House made its brief public, dismissing the case as a “dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their president.” The case against and for the President is a legal interpretation of the Constitution. Can the public arrive at an informed conclusion or will they side with identity politics?
- President Trump hired Alan Dershowitz and Kenneth W. Starr to serve on his defense team for the Senate impeachment trial that begins in earnest on Tuesday. Do their being hired suggest a shift in legal strategy?Starr has conceded the strength of the House’s impeachment case against Trump when he demanded a “quid pro quo” of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Starr on Fox News pronounced it “one of those bombshell days” and said, “It doesn’t look good for the president, substantively.”
- Dershowitz told “The Dan Abrams Show” on SiriusXM radio, and on MSNBC that he would argue that the abuse of power is not an impeachable offense but other legal eagles disagree. Which is it?
- The Hill reports the Trump administration is reportedly planning to unveil a rule this week aimed at cracking down on “birth tourism” — a term referring to pregnant women traveling to the U.S. in order to give birth and secure U.S. citizenship for their child. Three officials told Axios on Sunday that the plain will be unveiled in the days ahead, though it was unclear what enforcement mechanism would go in place. POTUS has previously threatened to issue executive orders nullifying birthright citizenship, yet it is enshrined in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution.
