Trump's Lawyers Demand Senate Dismiss Impeachment Charges Over 'Unconstitutional Political Theater'

Donald Trump's lawyers have demanded that the Senate dismiss impeachment charges against the former president, blasting his upcoming trial as 'unconstitutional political theater' in a 78-page brief filed on Monday, the day before the Senate meets as an impeachment court.

"This was only ever a selfish attempt by Democratic leadership in the House to prey upon the feelings of horror and confusion that fell upon all Americans across the entire political spectrum upon seeing the destruction at the Capitol on Jan. 6 by a few hundred people," wrote Trump attorneys David Schon and Michael T. van der Veen.

"In bringing this impeachment in the manner in which they did, namely via a process that violated every precedent and every principle of fairness followed in impeachment inquiries for more than 150 years, they offered the public a master’s class in the art of political opportunism," the filing continues.
