Trump’s lawyers reportedly jump ship ahead of second impeachment trial

Only 270 electoral votes are needed to win a U.S. presidential election.

The announcement from Trump's office said that Schoen and Castor agree that the trial against Trump is unconstitutional.

"The Republican Party as I knew it no longer exists". And while the circumstances were far different from this second impeachment, they share the same underlying accusations that Trump was resorting to extreme and impeachable actions to win re-election in 2020.

As the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump approaches, we are beginning to get some idea of how the House managers intend to proceed. "The number is growing every day", Purcell said.

The Senate acquitted Trump in that case, largely on party lines.

Trump's trial will be the first for a president not now in office. The fact that then-Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., made sure the Senate was not in session to receive the Article of Impeachment until Joe Biden took office gives away the game on that one. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel was quoted as saying the party was "having a little bit of a spat right now". But we are going to come together.

Representatives for Trump did not respond to a request for comment. She is a follower of the QAnon conspiracy theory that holds Trump as a savior of sort in a battle against an alleged Satanic ring of child pedophiles plotting against the former president.

The only US president to be twice the target of the indictment process will also be the first head of state to be targeted by the process since Trump ends his term.

Mr Trump is due to file a response to the House impeachment charges by Tuesday.

CNN and NBC News report that Trump has urged his legal team to focus on his still-unproven claims of widespread voter fraud as his defense, while those departing his legal team had pushed for a defense based on the legality of impeaching a former president.

Donald Trump's "incitement to rebellion" process is set to begin on February 9, following the January 6 invasion of the Capitol by supporters of the former president.

The unwillingness by party leaders to disavow Trump was the final straw for some former Republican officials.

High-profile names like former USA solicitor-general Ken Starr and prominent lawyer Alan Dershowitzwere also part of the team.

His options include contributing to lawmakers he views as loyal to him, such as U.S. Representative Jim Jordan of OH, as a possible Senate contender, or funding challengers to those he sees as disloyal, such as U.S. Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the highest-ranking House of Representatives Republican to vote to impeach him. There are dozens of court transcripts from indicted insurrectionists who say they believed that the president had told them to do what they did.

One of those, Suzy DeFrancis, a veteran of the Republican Party who served in administrations including those of former presidents Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, said she voted for Biden in November but that breaking the party apart now will only benefit Democrats.
