Washington: Former US President Donald Trump has selected lawyers to lead his defense in the impeachment case. The process will begin on February 8th.
Reported by Reuters.
Reportedly, Trump will be defended by lawyers David Sean and Bruce Castor. The decision was taken after five of the former president's lawyers refused to take part in the impeachment case and represent the defense just a week before the start of the trial.
Recall that among the lawyers who left Trump are the main defenders Butch Bowers and Deborah Barbery from South Carolina. Their aides from the state Johnny Gasser and Greg Harris also left the Trump team. In addition, lawyer Josh Howard stopped working on the impeachment case. This happened as a result of disagreements over the defense strategy.
