‘My home was attacked’: Trump impeachment defense lawyer says he was targeted

Since the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, Democrats and the media have cast the event as being reflective of all Trump supporters and conservatives, and have accused former President Donald Trump of directly inciting and being a co-conspirator with the rioters.

Violence on the part of left-wing mobs, however, has received far less attention. This is a fact that Trump defense attorney Michael van der Veen — knows about firsthand. During a post-impeachment trial interview with Fox News on Saturday, van der Veen revealed that his Philadelphia home had been targeted on Friday. 

“My home was attacked,” van der Veen said, according to Breitbart.

“Under siege”

“[M]y entire family, my business, my law firm are under siege right now,” van der Veen explained.

“I don’t really want to go into that, though. What I’d really like to do is talk about the merits of the case,” he added.

According to a report from Newsweek, the word “traitor” was spray-painted in giant red letters across the entrance to the driveway of van der Veen’s house with an arrow pointing toward his home. According to investigators, eggs were also thrown at the property.

Newsweek reported that law enforcement is “investigating the incident,” but added that “police said there were no suspects at the time of publication.”

Fellow Trump attorney targeted

Van der Veen was not the only one on Trump’s impeachment defense team who was targeted. Fellow Trump lawyer Bruce Castor told Fox News that he too has been subjected to harassment.

“My house was the subject of unrest. These people are lawyers and they expect to do their jobs without having fear for their personal safety,” he said, according to Newsweek.

Castor continued: “If the country has reached the point where somebody needs a lawyer that lawyer is themselves attacked, where are we going to be going forward when somebody truly is in need of counsel and can’t find one because they’re afraid to defend a person who represents what half the country thinks an unpopular cause?”

While left-wing violence has grown less prevalent than it was last summer, the problem has by no means gone away.

Fox News reported that Tacoma, Washington was rocked by anti-police rioting late last month.

    1. You are expecting members of the Peoples Democratic Party to actually follow
      the LAW?? I am SHOCKED! I mean REALLY and truly SHOCKED that you would
      actually expect any member of that party to answer to the Law of the Land for their Criminal actions.
      That could happen in a Nation that believed in the Rule of Law. Misfortunate like with the CommieCrats holding the WHIP hand= Fat Chance.

    2. Why was Pres. trumps defense Attorney ‘s Home targeted, this needs to be investigated, they need to find out who was behind it & who did this , arrested & put in jail

  1. This is not a crime. There is no crime. No one to prosecute.
    Letting criminals go free. Corrupt judges & liberal prosecutors. We’re on our own.

  3. These people that vandalized this Lawyer are low lifes , they do not show their Face. They do not do anything by themselves, they only do there destruction with gangs or groups. They is easy words are Cowards . And when they are caught, they will pay and pay dearly . Come on out you scum bags . COWARDS

  4. These scumbags have no right to life. Shoot them dead on the spot and the riots will stop real quick. These cowards have crossed the line.

  5. Why aren’t the swamp rats being arrested? We could easily get them for treason, among other crimes. They believe in the satanic worship. Watch Gina Phillips explaining the superbowl half time show. I watched it and it is unbelieveable. God help us all.

    1. The reason your not seeing any arrest or charges is because they protect each other. AG Barr was a joke. FBI Director Wray was even a bigger joke and where in the hell is Durham? Trump put faith in these people too do their jobs and just like the Dems, they stabbed Trump in the back.

  6. Biden falsley campaigned on uniting the country; “even those chumps blowing their car horns”. What do the dems think that because we support our candidate that we are stupid, worthless and need to be “reprogrammed” per katie couric. America was built on freedom of speech and I’m not afraid to say that we republicans need to fight like hell! By that I mean speak out against this cancel culture. When they play the race card (blm) expose that organization for what it is marxist radicals. Fight for the morals and ethics that we had growing up. Not this bs that its ok for a biological man to compete in women’s sports and vise versa. And don’t let them tromp on our 2nd amendment biden worries about legal gun owners while crime rises in our cities involving illegal guns…chicago; 4 dead 20 shot. Impeachment was a sham to deflect from the crap biden is doing to our country. MAGA 2 SWAMP 0

  7. Hey! Since the left wants to report neighbors. We will report those who report neighbors to the Police. The Police really have time for that. Since criminals are being let out of jail, maybe the criminals can report each other. That will save some reporting time. After all it’s only unfair to report. Right? Or left? With all this reporting I kind of lost track myself. But then you have to ask yourself a question. Do I report or not report? Well do ya punk?

  8. Someone needs to go back to all the videos and investigations on those in the BLM and Antifa insurrections all of last year. Find them, prosecute them, jail them. When you compare what these groups did, (rioting, looting, beating people up, burning businesses down, rape, killing people including black people) it is highly criminal and everyone who voted for liberals in the last election is responsible for it. Prosecute the people who did these things.
    Liberals are delusional and belong in mental institutions. They have never told the truth in their lives, they lied about Donald Trump repeatedly and yet these “liberal followers” of the great libs of our times, are so brainwashed they cannot think for themselves anymore. Do what the dems did. Begin lawsuits against every liberal for everything, impeach everyone, centure every liberal, etc.

  9. My advice to this person is, 1- Take an approved gun safety and training course,purchase at least 2 firearms with a good supply of hollow-point rounds and regular rounds to use at the firing range, 2- Invest in additional security measures to your home, 3-The next time the cowardly demonRAT thugs decide to pay you and your family a visit,2 shots to the torso and 1 to the back of the head! Problem solved!
