Trump Lawyers Accuse House Impeachment Managers of Intimidation: ‘How Dare You’

Michael van der Veen, one of the attorneys defending former President Donald Trump in his Senate impeachment trial, accused House impeachment managers Friday of attempting to intimidate Trump’s lawyers.

Van der Veen noted that lead House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) had introduced a letter from 140 law professors who claimed that Trump’s First Amendment defense was not only wrong, but “frivolous.” That, he said, had specific consequences:

The House managers have made several references to this letter, signed by 140 partisan law professors, calling Mr. Trump‘s First Amendment defense legally frivolous. This is really an outrageous attempt to intimidate Mr. Trump’s lawyers. Whenever a lawyer advances a truly frivolous argument, they may violate professional ethical rules and could be subject to discipline. This letter is a direct threat to my law license, my career, and my family’s financial well-being. These law professors should be ashamed of themselves, and so should the House managers.

How dare you?
