Trump’s Impeachment Defense Team Departs Less Than Two Weeks Before Trial

Donald Trump‘s defense team is falling apart after five impeachment defense attorneys left, a little more than a week before his impeachment trial begins.

According to CNN, sources familiar with the case claim the attorneys left amid a disagreement over his legal strategy.

Trump’s defense has been struggling from the beginning. The former one-term, twice impeached president has had difficulty finding lawyers willing to take his case. Now, with legal briefs due within the next week and a trial that’s set to begin a few days later, Trump may find himself without adequate legal representation.

Butch Bowers, who assembled the team, and Deborah Barbier were supposed to be two of Trump’s lead attorneys on the case, but they are both gone. A source told CNN, it was a mutual decision for both to leave the team.

Josh Howard, an attorney from North Carolina, who was recently added to the team, has also already left, and lawyers Johnny Gasser and Greg Harris, from South Carolina, are suddenly no longer involved with the case, either.

Trump is desperately clinging to his election fraud charade and wanted his legal team to focus on presenting that argument rather than focus their efforts on the legality of convicting a president after he’s left office. The source told CNN, Trump was not receptive to the discussions about how they should proceed with his case in that regard.
