Trump’s legal team: OJ’s lawyer and man who got Clinton impeached

Donald Trump has brought in a high-profile legal team to launch the defence during his impeachment trial – including the lawyer who got OJ Simpson acquitted and the man who got Bill Clinton impeached.

One of the top lawyers is Ken Starr, whose investigative report on President Clinton’s sexual affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky served as the basis for his impeachment in 1999.

Another is prominent lawyer and Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz, who was part of the “Dream Team” of lawyers who got former NFL star OJ Simpson acquitted of murdering his wife and her friend.

Both were on Jeffrey Epstein’s legal team in 2008 when the businessman pleaded guilty to soliciting prostitution of an underage girl.

Mr Dershowitz also advised film producer Harvey Weinstein’s team in the 2018 sexual abuse case against him, and was accused by a teenage victim of being one of the men Epstein trafficked her to.
