Trump Legal Team Reaches Agreement On Finance Subpoenas

Description:

President Trump's lawyer says an agreement has been reached with the House Intelligence and Financial Services committees on the subpoenas over the president's financial records.


President Donald Trump's legal team filed a lengthy response to charges he abused his office and obstructed Congress, decrying the attempt to remove him as a "charade" and calling on senators to quickly reject it.
The 110-page filing reflects the most fulsome rebuttal of Democrats' accusations against Trump and amounts to a preview of the case Trump's lawyers will make on the Senate floor when the impeachment trial commences.
They argue the impeachment was a partisan sham that failed to prove any violation of law. They warn against dangerous precedents should Democrats' efforts prove successful. And they insist Trump was well within his prerogatives to raise the issue of his political rivals with a foreign leader.
President Trump's legal team for his impeachment trial is taking shape. It will be led by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and the president's personal attorney Jay Sekulow, along with Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr and Pam Biondi. CBS News' Natalie Brand, McClatchy congressional reporter Emma Dumain, and AP White House reporter Jill Colvin joined CBSN with the latest developments.
President Donald Trump's legal team for his upcoming impeachment trial includes controversial defense attorney Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr.
Donald Trump, Jr says if we're hearing from witnesses I would like to hear from the other side. #FoxNews
