We have filed our post-trial brief in the Senate Impeachment Trial of United States District Court Judge Thomas Porteous. The brief, linked below, presents the factual record on each of the articles of impeachment after the conclusion of the Senate trial. We are expecting final arguments to be heard in December before all 100 Senators on the Senate floor.
The brief was submitted the day before I left for France and I never got a chance to post it.
I cannot include the link to the post-trial brief of the House because the Senate has rejected the submission of the House pre-trial brief due to the inclusion of material excluded from evidence by the Senate. The House has been ordered to remove various quotations and citations to legal experts who were called by the House to support impeachment. Such testimony on the ultimate legal question is routinely excluded from trials and has never been introduced as expert testimony in a Senate trial. This was previously made clear by the Senate in this case, so the House has been ordered to resubmit its post-trial brief at a future date.
