Donald Trump’s legal team is in disarray after cutting roads with top impeachment attorneys
Mr Trump has struggled to find lawyers willing to defend him after becoming the first president in history to be impeached twice. He was assigned to To appear in court in the week of February 8 Accused of inciting his supporters to storm Congress before the inauguration of President Joe Biden in an attempt to halt the peaceful transfer of power.
After several of his attorneys previously refused to take over the case, Mr Trump was introduced to Bowers by one of his closest allies in the Senate, Lindsay Graham.
Mr. Bowers, a familiar figure in Republican legal circles, has years of experience representing elected officials and political candidates, including then South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford against a botched impeachment attempt that turned into a moral investigation.
Bowers and Barbier did not immediately respond to messages requesting comment on Saturday night.
Republicans and Trump aides have made it clear that they intend to present a simple argument at trial: Trump’s trial is unconstitutional because he is no longer in office.
While Republicans in Washington appeared eager to split from Trump after the deadly events of January 6, they have since toned down their criticism, after being tired of angering the former president’s loyal voter base.
CNN was the first to report the lawyers’ departure.
