Trump’s Legal Team Already Aggressively Responding To Impeachment: ‘Constitutionally Invalid’

If this is any indication of how quickly things are going to move, the impeachment circus could be over sooner than you think.

Trump has assembled an all-star legal team to defend him, and they are wasting no time going after the Democrats and their flimsy argument.

Trump lawyers respond to articles of impeachment: ‘Constitutionally invalid’

President Trump’s legal team on Saturday issued a full-throttle defense to the articles of impeachment, refuting the substance and process of the charges while accusing House Democrats of engaging in a “dangerous attack” on the right of the American people to freely choose their president.

“This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election — now just months away,” the legal filing said. “The highly partisan and reckless obsession with impeaching the president began the day he was inaugurated and continues to this day.”

“The articles of impeachment are constitutionally invalid on their face,” the seven-page filing continued.

The legal paperwork is the first formal response to the two articles of impeachment read in the Senate on Thursday for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Trump’s lawyers argued that the articles of impeachment “violate the Constitution” and are “defective in their entirety” because they were the product of invalid House proceedings that “flagrantly denied the President any due process rights.”

These are serious lawyers.

In the coming days, Democrats and their media allies will do whatever they can to discredit every lawyer on this team.

Ignore them.

All that matters at the end of the day is the facts in the case. This is a strong team.
