The impeachment trial against President Donald Trump went just the way I was afraid it would. If the president really is innocent you would think the Republicans would have wanted witnesses to prove it. But they knew he was guilty.
Kenneth Starr, an attorney appointed to defend Mr. Trump, sucked up $40 million of taxpayers’ money when he went after then-President Bill Clinton during his 1988 impeachment trial. And here he was again with Mr. Trump’s trial, stuffing his pockets with our money. It’s a shame we can’t get a law that makes a politician pay for his own defense when he gets himself in hot water. Maybe that would cut down on some of the corruption.
