Now that the impeachment articles have been transferred to the U.S. Senate and Senators have been sworn in as jurors, Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial is officially underway.
And while it's adjourned for the long weekend, the White House just announced their legal team, and it's a doozy.
In addition to lead attorneys Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow, Trump's legal team will consist of five additional lawyers who are expected to have speaking roles on the Senate floor throughout the trial:
- Robert Ray
- Alan Dershowitz
- Ken Starr
- Jane Raskin
- Pam Bondi
And none other than Monica Lewinsky herself weighed in with a reaction that was relatable AF:
