Donald J. Trump will act as his own defense attorney at his impeachment trial after receiving a law degree from Trump University.
Trump bestowed the degree upon himself in his capacity as the dean of the Trump University School of Law, where he graduated first in his class.
In his first official statement as the lead attorney of his defense team, Trump vowed not to quit the team “like those other losers.”
Davis Logsdon, a law professor at the University of Minnesota, called Trump’s new status as his own attorney “problematic.”
“It’s true that he will now have a fool for a client, but that was also true of his other attorneys,” Logsdon said. “One downside of working for himself, however, is that he definitely will not get paid.”
