Trump Furious With "Meandering" Lawyer

Day one of the second Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump was focused on whether it was constitutional for the Senate to go forward with the case, since Trump is no longer the sitting president, and thus cannot be removed from office. Democratic impeachment managers put together a superb presentation, including video clips from the insurrection itself, as well as slides to demonstrate the precedent that exists for trying former federal officeholders. Congressmen Jamie Raskin and Joe Neguse did so well that it caught Trump’s defense lawyers off guard. One Trump attorney, Bruce Castor, admitted that they had to change their defense strategy in real time because they found the impeachment managers’ presentation to be “well done.”

In contrast, Trump’s lawyers rambled and argued the weakest of points in what was an embarrassment of a defense. Castor spent much of his time bloviating about how great senators are, how people know their senators, and how he happens to have a good relationship with his own senators. Castor went on to say that the Department of Justice could arrest Trump if they find his conduct to be criminal, which is not the best defense of a client. Also, he admitted that Joe Biden won the 2020 election fairly by making the point that the American people were able to change administrations since they didn’t like the last one. The other lawyer for Trump, David Schoen, did not do much better. According to CNN, Trump was furious with the weak defense, reportedly “borderline screaming over what was going on.”
