There was a lot of pearl-clutching and jaw-boning on the “news” channels over the weekend about the word that President Trump had “lost” his impeachment legal defense team. It was rumored that they wanted to argue the unconstitutionality of the entire procedure while Trump wanted to focus on issues surrounding election fraud. Most legal analysts say that’s a bad strategy.
But on the other hand, if Trump thinks the entire process is unconstitutional anyway, he may see it as a chance, at long last, to force the Senate, the media and the public to look at any evidence of voter fraud he may have that courts refused to examine. And there’s no reason why his attorneys can’t present both arguments.
As for him being “abandoned” by the legal profession, he already has new attorneys, and they seem to have pretty solid resumes.
