Trump’s newest lawyer has fought for Jewish causes, believes Epstein was killed

Trump’s newest lawyer has fought for Jewish causes, believes Epstein was killed

Many legal scholars, however, say there is no bar to an impeachment trial despite Trump having left the White House.

Castor has focused on criminal law throughout his career, while Schoen specialises in "civil rights litigation in Alabama and federal criminal defence work, including white collar and other complex cases, in NY".

Trump announced his new legal team on Sunday after a sudden departure of lawyers who had been working on his defense to answer charges relating to his alleged role in inciting the insurrection in Washington, D.C., last month that led to the storming of the Capitol Building and the deaths of five people. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, requested the trial be delayed to give Trump time to put together his impeachment defense.

It cites his earlier attempts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the election, including that astonishing phone call in which Trump openly asked an election official in Georgia to "find" the votes needed to overturn the election in his state.

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

USA congressional Republicans face a week of reckoning ahead of Donald Trump's second impeachment trial as the former president contends with a deadline to respond to the charges and his party mulls whether to punish Representative Liz Cheney for backing impeachment.

Although senators were sworn in for the impeachment proceedings last week, the formal trial will not begin until February 9.

Trump commuted Stone's prison sentence in July 2020, saying he was "treated very unfairly".

If convicted in the Senate trial, senators could then hold another vote to bar Trump from political office in future. "We have our lawyers in place, we have a solid team, and we're looking ahead", Jason Miller, a senior adviser to Trump, told Axios.

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

Schoen recently represented Trump ally Roger Stone and met with Jeffrey Epstein.

"I represented all sorts of reputed mobster figures", Schoen told the Atlanta Jewish Times in an interview a year ago, pointing to organized crime figures from Russia, Israel and Italy.

In 2004, Castor ran for state attorney general unsuccessfully.

After Trump's original five lawyers dropped out on Saturday, the need to assemble a new team was urgent. Meanwhile, lawmakers are questioning why Democrats are pushing for impeachment when President Trump is no longer in office.
