WASHINGTON — President Trump’s impeachment team in the Senate trial will include two former independent counsels and constitutional-law professor Alan Dershowitz, a person familiar with the matter said Friday.
The team, which will be led by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and will also include Jay Sekulow, a personal lawyer to the president, will be joined by Kenneth Starr, whose five-year Whitewater inquiry led to the impeachment and acquittal of former President Bill Clinton; and Robert Ray, who succeeded Starr in the Whitewater investigation, the person said.

Dershowitz’s role in the Senate trial will focus on the constitutional arguments against impeachment and against removing the president from office, the team said Friday.
