Donald Trump was not happy with his impeachment defense team’s performance yesterday and was screaming as Bruce Castor delivered his arguments, a source told CNN.
Castor, who is representing Trump alongside attorney David Schoen, delivered a meandering argument during the first day of the Senate impeachment trial, including praise for the House impeachment managers for a presentation that he said was “well done.”
Trump was almost screaming as Castor struggled to get at the heart of his defense team’s argument, which is supposed to be over the constitutionality of holding a trial for a president no longer in office. Given that the legal team was assembled a little over a week ago, it went as expected, one of the sources told CNN.
Trump’s impeachment team performance was widely panned by critics and allies of Donald Trump alike.
David Schoen the other lead attorney on the team sought to reassured MAGA world on Fox Tuesday night telling Hannity that the team “will be very well prepared in the future and do a great job in the case.”
