SHOCKER! Most Of Trump’s Impeachment Lawyers Have Anti-LGBTQ Background

President Trump’s impeachment starts this week, and while he appears to have chosen his defense team lawyers on the basis of how well they’ll perform on television – he might just as easily have chosen them (with one exception) on the basis of their anti-LGBTQ record, reports LGBTQ Nation.

The site takes a look at each of the lawyers who will be defending Trump during his Senate trial, and their history attacking LGBTQ people.

Attorney Jay Sekulow, for example, has praised Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay “crackdown,” said that judges who upheld marriage equality were “flouting the laws of our country,”  and considered Supreme Court ruling striking down sodomy laws an assault on “the traditional family.”
