Iconic liberal civil and human rights defense attorney and Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz announced Friday has joined President Donald Trump’s legal team and will present oral arguments against impeachment and removal in the Senate trial.

Dershowitz issued a three-part statement making the announcement on Twitter, saying that, even though he voted for Hillary Clinton for president, he is non-partisan regarding the Constitution.

Thus, Dershowitz says, he is defending Trump in order to prevent the perversion of the Constitution:

STATEMENT REGARDING PROFESSOR DERSHOWITZ’S ROLE IN THE SENATE TRIAL - Professor Dershowitz will present oral arguments at the Senate  trial to address the constitutional  arguments against impeachment and removal.   (1of 2)

(2 of 3) While Professor Dershowitz is non partisan when it comes to the constitution—he opposed the impeachment of President Bill Clinton and voted for Hillary Clinton— he believes the issues at stake go to the heart of our enduring Constitution.

(3of 3)  He is participating in this impeachment trial to defend the integrity of the Constitution and to prevent the creation of a dangerous constitutional precedent.
