“You can pay family members from our highest government officials and no one is allowed to ask questions?” Herschmann said during the proceedings. “What was going on?”
He also dug into Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), one of the Democrats’ impeachment managers.
“Can you imagine what House manager Schiff and his Democratic representatives would say if it were President Trump’s children on an oligarchs payroll?” Herschmann said.
It was not immediately clear what would be in Herschmann’s portfolio at the White House. Before joining the Kasowitz law firm, he was vice chairman of the board at Southern Union Company and counsel for CitiBank. Before that, he was an assistant district attorney in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. That office is now investigating Trump’s finances, according to a recent court filing.
