Lawyer says his home, family ‘under siege’ as retaliation for representing Trump in trial

Lawyer says his home, family ‘under siege’ as retaliation for representing Trump in trial. By Alex Swoyer.

Michael van der Veen, one of the lawyers who defended former President Donald Trump successfully in the Senate impeachment trial, said after the verdict Saturday that his family, home and law practice are “under siege” due to his representation of Mr. Trump.

“My home was attacked. I’d rather not go into it because it would encourage other people to do it more, but you know, I’ve had nearly 100 death threats,” he told reporters. “My home was attacked last night — windows broken, spray paint, really bad words spray-painted everywhere.”

Among the vandalism, someone spray-painted the word “traitor” on the driveway of his Philadelphia home.

Why bother with persuading people or using evidence, when you can just bully or scare away your opponents with name-calling, threats and violence, or bribe them (like the lawyers advising Trump after the election)?

Notice how the chicanery is all coming from one side of politics at the moment. Must mean they have truth on their side (cough).
