Former President Donald Trump’s legal team is unclear and undefined with just over a week to precede his second impeachment trial starts in the Senate, according to Trump advisor Jason Miller.
Since recently, South Carolina attorneys Butch Bowers and Deborah Barbier were expected to join the team, now a source familiar with the matter states it was a “shared choice” to part ways.
” We have actually done much work, but have actually not made a final decision on our legal group, which will be made soon,” Miller stated in a statement Saturday, including that “Democrats’ efforts to impeach a president who has actually already left office is completely unconstitutional therefore bad for our country.”
It was uncertain whether lawyer Josh Howard, who was expected to assist represent Trump, is on board. Those near to the former president are unable to determine anybody on his legal team with simply over a week to go up until the trial starts on Feb. 9.
Trump is not preparing to appear face to face to defend himself versus the charge that he incited the fatal riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
