    Trump defense team gets reinforcements, battle over Senate impeachment trial witnesses, ground rules to begin

    In a surprise move Monday night, a group of high-profile House Republicans announced that they would formally join the president's legal team, including Reps. Doug Collins, Mike Johnson, Jim Jordan, Debbie Lesko, Mark Meadows, John Ratcliffe, Elise Stefanik and Lee Zeldin. The last-minute show of force underscored the fluid nature of the Senate trial, which is also set to feature full-throated arguments against impeachment from constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz and Bill Clinton independent counsel Ken Starr.

    I wonder if Jonathan Turley is part of it as well? He, like Dershowitz, is an admitted Democrat and liberal who has also warned against this flaky impeachment.

    Dershowitz apparently is distancing himself a bit, likely because his pronouncements on impeachable offenses during the Clinton impeachment directly contradict his pronouncements now.

    And they've just gotten started on Ken Starr, who made some very expansive claims for impeachable offenses, when he was frantically trying to find something impeachable for Clinton.

    In criminal trials there is such a thing as a motion to acquit.

    "A motion for judgment of acquittal rests on the claim that the evidence at trial was insufficient for a conviction. In other words, the defendant argues that no reasonable jury could possibly find guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. A defendant can ask a judge to acquit on all of the charges or just some of them." nolo.com
