"Five attorneys who were prepared to defend former President Donald Trump in his upcoming Senate impeachment trial have departed his legal team, people familiar with the situation confirmed to CNN and The New York Times. Butch Bowers and Deborah Barbier, who were expected to be two of the lead attorneys, are out, as are Josh Howard, Johnny Gasser, and Greg Harris. No other attorneys have announced they were involved with the case, so it appears that, for now, Trump is defenseless.
The lawyers reportedly left because of a disagreement over legal strategy. Trump reportedly wanted them to push his unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud in last year’s presidential election rather than focus on whether convicting a former president after he’s out of office is constitutional, an argument that appears to be the consensus among Republicans and the reason he’ll likely be acquitted. Bowers, a source said, lacked chemistry with Trump and the decision to leave was reportedly mutual."
