The article of impeachment drafted by House Democrats would charge Donald Trump with ‘inciting violence against the government of the United States’
Like I’ve said previously….
Thing’s Donald Trump touch tend to turn to shit……
His second impeachment trial hasn’t even begun and it’s a mess….
Chance of a conviction low even though the Senate GOP leader initially would have voted to convict maybe?
Democrats looking for more evidence…
FBI running it’s biggest case against those in the January 6 Capitol protest that turned into a violent ‘riot’…..
Biden praying for a speed trial….
Pelosi is set against THAT….
The top two lawyer’s bail out?
And top level lawyer’s do NOT want to handle the case against the big guy….(Rudy Giuliani wanted in but Trump did NOT invite his services)
Former President Donald Trump has lost his top impeachment lawyer just days before his trial is to begin, a person familiar with his legal strategy and two attorneys close to the team confirmed on Saturday night.
Butch Bowers, a South Carolina lawyer who was reportedly set to play a major role in the Senate’s trial of the former president, is now no longer with the team. Deborah Barbier, another South Carolina lawyer, won’t be either. The person described it as a “mutual decision” and said new names will be announced shortly.
The decision by Bowers and Barbier to not join the team raised immediate questions, both about what compelled them to part ways and who actually will play the role of lawyer to Trump when the impeachment trial starts in early February.
Trump has had difficulty finding legal help for his second impeachment, with some of the lawyers who worked on his first trial saying they wouldn’t do the same this go around….
“To expect something to go without controversy and chaos would be too much to expect from this guy,” Harpootlian [ a prominent South Carolina lawyer and longtime Democratic official in the state ] said of Trump.
Gloria Borger over at CNN reports that 3 orher Trump defense lawyers have left the Trump impeachment case for a roday of 5 gone…..
