As this past election season heated up the cold winter days, former President Donald Trump has parted ways with some of his impeachment lawyers. According to house democrats, the reason for impeachment is due to the events that took place at the US Capitol building on January 6th. All but five Senate Republicans are in favor of dismissing the trial before it starts. Trump has had a very hard time finding attorneys who are willing to defend him after he became the only US president to be impeached twice. A lot of the attorneys who previously defended him declined to take on the current case. Former President Trump’s strongest argument will be that the trial is unconstitutional because he is no longer in office. House Democrats are accusing Trump of provoking the riots that took place at the US Capitol building on January 6th. Trump has since announced that he has hired a new legal team, it will be led by David Schoen who is a criminal defense attorney who works both in Alabama and New York, and Bruce Castor Jr. who is a former district attorney in Pennsylvania. Since President Joe Biden has taken office many of the same House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump now agree that it is unconstitutional to even have a trial. Many people have also attempted to forget about Trump’s conduct saying that it was just his way of dealing with frustration over the handling of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. According to U.S. Senator Rand Paul the vote for a trial is already dead on arrival. The trial is scheduled to start on February 8th.
