Former U.S. President Donald Trump has selected two lawyers to lead his legal team in the impeachment trial.
As noted, it is about Bruce L. Castor – Jr. and David Shen. The latter had already worked with Trump during the preparation for the trial. All members of the former president’s team consider impeachment proceedings unconstitutional.
The day before, Trump’s team left lawyers Butch Bowers and Deborah Barbier. Later, Johnny Gasser, Josh Howard, and Greg Harris declined to defend him in court.
Recall that on January 13, the House of Representatives of Congress impeached Trump “for inciting rebellion” when supporters of the former U.S. president stormed the nation’s Capitol building on January 6. In late January, the U.S. Senate decided to postpone consideration of the impeachment of former President Donald Trump until February 9.
