The strangeness from the 57-year-old personal injury attorney, who works out of Philadelphia didn’t end there as footage has appeared to capture him taking a handful of Senate coasters for himself after the trial had finished.
Anne Gearan of The Washington Post reported on Sunday after the trial had concluded, “When it was over, there were no handshakes or any apparent interaction between the two panels of lawyers. Van der Veen did return to the lectern, where he appeared to pocket Senate coasters.”
Indeed some rather shaky footage that has been shared on social media and viewed more than 800,000 times would appear to suggest just that.
