Alan Dershowitz took to the digital airwaves to distance himself from the “full-fledged” legal team defending President Donald Trump at his Senate impeachment trial.

In a three-part statement on Dershowitz's Twitter feed, the Harvard law professor issued a statement about his his role.

“Professor Dershowitz will present oral arguments at the Senate trial to address the constitutional arguments against impeachment and removal,” the statement declared, adding that while he's "non partisan when it comes to the constitution—he opposed the impeachment of President Bill Clinton and voted for Hillary Clinton— he believes the issues at stake go to the heart of our enduring Constitution."

“He is participating in this impeachment trial to defend the integrity of the Constitution and to prevent the creation of a dangerous constitutional precedent,” the statement concluded.

In a separate interview with Dan Abrams on SiriusXM’s POTUS Channel, Dershowitz reiterated his assertion, saying he’ll only give a single speech before the Senate, Mediate reported.

Abrams is the founder of the news outlet.

“I think it overstates it to say I’m a member of the Trump team,” he told Abrams.

“I was asked to present my constitutional argument against impeachment,” he added. “I will be there for one hour, basically, presenting my argument. But I’m not a full-fledged member of the defense team in any realistic sense of that term.”
