Rick Perry’s legal team to target DA
Gov. Rick Perry’s team of nationally prominent lawyers previewed his legal and public relations strategy Monday, blasting the coercion and abuse of power charges against him as an “outrageous assault on the rule of law.”
The attorneys, in their first appearance, made it clear that they will put the local district attorney on trial.
“This is nothing more than banana republic politics,” said Houston personal injury attorney Tony Buzbee, who is leading the legal team.
