Days before President Trump was formally acquitted, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed Trump lawyers have “disgraced” themselves and suggesting they be disbarred. Pelosi was referring to Alan Dershowitz.
“I don’t know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they’re making.” Pelosi told reporters at the Capitol.
With Trump now acquitted, Dershowitz is firing back and calling for her and Schumer to go.
TheHill reports Alan Dershowitz, an associate of President Trump who served on his impeachment defense team, said Democrats need new leadership in Congress and that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) “have to go.”
“I think they need new leadership. I think Schumer and Pelosi have to go. Schumer because of his history of lying. You know, Pelosi actually called for me to be disbarred … because I had persuaded some senators” in the impeachment trial, Dershowitz said on John Catsimatidis’s radio show Sunday.
“I think the Dems need new leaders if they have any chance of returning to power,” he added.
Dershowitz’s comments come days after the conclusion of the Senate’s acrimonious impeachment trial.
The House voted in December largely along party lines to impeach Trump on allegations that he abused the power of his office by pressing Ukraine to investigate his political opponents and obstructed Congress by hindering subsequent probes about his dealings with the country and its officials.
The Senate acquitted Trump this week, with only Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) breaking party lines to vote to convict on abuse of power.
