Dershowitz claims he won't take payment for work done with Trump's impeachment defense


Alan Dershowitz has stated that he does not plan to take any payments for the work he does with Donald Trump's impeachment defense.

He stated this during an interview with Anderson Cooper, where he also said he believes in the Constitution and does not support the impeachment efforts set forth against the president.

Dershowitz also expressed a concern that suggests impeachment is being weaponized and could essentially be used against any and all further presidents, as per a report on Epoch Times.

Discussions about payment haven’t yet occurred, but he said that if payment is made, “all the money would go to charity.”

Dershowitz is among the eight counsels confirmed to join Trump’s legal team for the Senate impeachment trial. The defense team will be led by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Trump’s private attorney Jay Sekulow, according to the White House.

Also joining the legal team are Ken Starr, a former U.S. solicitor general; Trump adviser and former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi; former independent counsel Robert Ray, who was part of the Whitewater investigation of the Clintons; Jane Raskin, one of Trump’s private lawyers who was part of the president’s legal team during Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation; and former independent counsel Eric Herschmann of the Kasowitz Benson Torres legal firm, which has represented Trump in numerous cases over the past 15 years.

Dershowitz is a Harvard constitutional law professor emeritus and he's been tapped to focus on the constitutional aspect of the impeachment, and if there's appropriate criteria for Trump to face impeachment at all.

His job will be to prove that Democrats did not meet the Constitutional criteria for impeachment, nor did they find an impeachable offense.
