Patrick Philbin Trump Impeachment Trial

Philbin was the attorney who took on the whole article of impeachment charging Trump with obstruction of Congress, and his response relied very heavily on the dubious claim that subpoenas issued before a formal House vote to authorize impeachment proceedings were invalid. It’s true that such a House vote took place during prior presidential impeachment efforts, but it hasn’t in other impeachments, and the requirement of a prior vote appears nowhere in the Constitution, which makes the Housemaster of its own procedures. Philbin also ignored the fact that presidential refusal to cooperate in the impeachment inquiry didn’t end when the House did formally authorize proceedings in October.

While Trump’s attorneys were far from systematic in their initial presentation, it was enough for his political allies in and beyond the Senate, who treated its brevity as a virtue. Other lawyers include Ken Starr,  Pat Cipollone.
