Last week, news broke that multiple lawyers for President Trump’s impeachment defense team resigned altogether.

Reportedly, the departures happened after the 45th president and his then-attorneys disagreed on the proper means to present a defense against impeachment. While Trump wanted to focus on election fraud, his attorneys disagreed and stated that arguing against the constitutional basis of putting a former president on trial was a better approach.

Many of Trump’s detractors wasted no time in gloating, amid news of his attorneys exiting from the defense team. Although on Sunday, Trump announced the new lawyers joining his legal defense group, Breitbart News confirms.

The New Defense Team for Trump

Attorneys Bruce L. Castor, Jr. and David Schoen are the newest attorneys who will be working with the 45th president. Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate will commence next week; therefore, his new lawyers will have between now and then to ready a defense for Trump.

In a statement from the former president, both Castor and Schoen are lauded for having “significant trial experience” along with national, impressive profiles. Both attorneys for Trump also maintain that the ongoing proceedings are unconstitutional and they’re prepared to see this thing through until the bitter end.

Schoen also already has prior experience of working with Trump.

Republican Senators

In order for the Senate to convict Trump, two-thirds of the body (hence 17 GOP senators) must be in favor and also vote accordingly. This is not going to happen. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has already explained that impeachment is “dead on arrival,” due to the strong opposition against it.

Democrats have a razor slim Senate majority; although, it’s not enough to convict the 45th president without Republicans in agreement. Up to 45 Republicans in the Senate have already argued that these proceedings are unconstitutional and unwarranted.

In truth, the congressional Democrats know that next week’s trial is not going to result in a conviction of Trump; however, they are willing to press ahead anyway. This form of grandstanding is a means of pandering to the radical left and putting on a show, despite the serious issues facing so many Americans.
