Attorney Jay Sekulow will be a member of Trump’s defense team for the Senate impeachment trial, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Sekulow, who became one of Trump’s private lawyers in mid-2017, specialized in constitutional issues during the Robert Mueller investigation. White House Counsel Pat Cipollone will lead Trump’s legal team for the trial.

Separately, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio -- one of the most nationally recognizable House Republican defenders of Trump -- is being recommended by some of the president’s allies to the White House as a potential member of his defense team.

Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, who has the president’s ear and is another one of Trump’s staunchest supporters, said he recommended Jordan.

“That’s totally up to the White House,” said Jordan, on whether he has expressed interest in such a role.
