Trump Hires New Lawyer For His Upcoming Impeachment Trial

Former US President Donald Trump finally seems to be waking up on the case of his upcoming impeachment trial. The former president hired Butch Bowers, a longtime Republican attorney with experience in election law.

Mr. Bowers will represent Donald Trump when the Senate considers an article of impeachment, likely in a matter of days or weeks.

The hiring comes after Trump opted against building out a war room or communications infrastructure to push back against impeachment when the House considered it.

Trump had also initially struggled with finding someone to lead his impeachment defense, as attorneys who previously represented him declined to sign for a second trial. They cited Trump’s political opponents had a stronger case this time.

‘’This is political theater and I am neither a politician nor an actor. I don’t see a role for me as a lawyer,’’ said Alan Dershowitz, the Trump allied attorney from last January’s impeachment defense team.

Trump’s new defense attorney received praise on Thursday for some of his former Republican clients. The South Carolina-based attorney previously represented former Gov.

Nikki Haley and Mark Sanford. He also serves as a judge advocate general officer for the South Carolina National Guard.

‘’Butch is a good friend and a fine lawyer. President Trump is fortunate to have him on his Team,’’ Haley said through a spokesperson.
