After Donald Trump revealed David Schoen and Bruce L. Castor, Jr., will lead his Senate defense many went to Twitter to point out that Trump’s new impeachment lawyers have a history – one is connected with Jeffrey Epstein and the other with Bill Cosby.
„Bruce Castor will be Trump’s new attorney for the second impeachment. Castor is the guy who refused to prosecute Bill Cosby after he drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand even though he had Cosby’s deposition. Cosby was convicted of that assault in 2018“, tweeted Victoria Brownworth.
Schoen, on the other hand, led the unsuccessful judicial challenge to Roger Stone’s convictions.
Schoen is also known for meeting with Jeffrey Epstein in prison to represent him before Epstein died.
„Trump is being represented by a guy who wanted to represent Jeffrey Epstein and a guy who refused to prosecute Bill Cosby. Can’t make this stuff up“, tweeted Brett Meiselas.
According to CNN, Trump has struggled to find lawyers willing to take his case as he refuses to budge from his election fraud claims.
Trump’s advisers have been talking to him about his legal strategy and he keeps bringing up election fraud for his defense, while they have repeatedly tried to steer him away from that, according to a source familiar with those discussions.
It’s unclear whether Schoen and Castor will go along with what Trump wants.
“Schoen has already been working with the 45th President and other advisors to prepare for the upcoming trial, and both Schoen and Castor agree that this impeachment is unconstitutional – a fact 45 Senators voted in agreement with last week” CNN reports.
