(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Defense attorney Michael Van Der Veen, who represented former President Donald Trump in the second Senate impeachment hearing, revealed over the weekend how his home was attacked following the Senate vote to acquit Trump.
Speaking to America’s News HQ on Fox, Van Der Veen explained the extreme consequences he has faced from far-left activists and Democrats for representing the former president.
“My home was attacked,” he said. “I’d rather not go into that. To answer your question, my entire family, my business, my law firm are under siege right now. 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.”
The Daily Mail reported how Van Der Veen’s home in Philadelphia was vandalized with graffiti the day before the Senate vote, reminding readers of how he was “seen hugging and fist-bumping other members of the team after the Senate trial.”
The word “Traitor” was painted in huge red letters outside of the driveway of his suburban home.

On Saturday, Detective Scott Pezick from the West Whiteland Township Police Department of Chester County said that no arrests were made, but that the home now has private security protection.
The same day, the home was attacked again. Protesters appeared outside of Van Der Veen’s office in Philadelphia, also, shouting words like “fascist.”
Others could be heard chanting, “When Van Der Veen lies, what do you do? Convict. Convict.”
Left-wing activists attacked his business following a compelling defense of the former president. Van Der Veen slammed Democrats during the hearing for doctoring evidence.
“Where I come from, when you get caught doctoring the evidence, your case is over. And that’s what happened,” he said.
