With Impeachment Trial Looming, Trump Loses Bulk of His Legal Team

Reports cited a rather ominous reason for the breakup.

Donald Trump has already gone down in history of being the only President to ever be impeached twice, and he may just find himself earning another dubious honor before the whole thing’s over still.

The House impeached Trump on Jan. 13 on a charge of “incitement of an insurrection” with 10 Republicans, including Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, crossing the aisle to vote with Democrats.

The trial, which begins on February 9th, runs the risk of wasting a lot of time for the Biden administration, with a litany of legislators being tied up in the proceedings during No. 46’s crucial first 100 days.
