After a rocky start to the Senate impeachment trial Trump’s lawyers have found themselves in hot water. After the days formal proceedings came to a close Trump impeachment attorney David Schoen directly addressed the lackluster performance to Sean Hannity who questioned if the legal team would be better prepared in the next days of the trial.
According to Townhall:
“There’s a lot of criticism of the opening, not your part in particular. But it seemed to be free associating, extemporaneous, somewhat meandering,” the host said, referring to Bruce Castor’s performance. “Will the rest of this process … be more focused and will it be more prepared?”
“Well, the fellow who you say did the opening today has his law firm there. They seem to be very capable people. I’m sure — today, he hadn’t planned on going. And so, I’m sure they will be very well-prepared in the future and do a great job in the case,” Schoen replied.
Fox News’ Laura Ingraham admired Hannity for directly asking Schoen the question.
“It was terrible. You are way too charitable,” she said. “If you hire that guy in the case that you are paying the bills on, it would’ve been like I’m sure you’re a nice person, but enough. How much time could you spend praising the Democrats?”
“I’ll be quite frank with you, we changed what we were going to do on account that we thought the House managers’ presentation was well done,” Castor said in part of his speech.
According to sources close to Trump, the former president was “furious” with his team’s performance yesterday.
