Trump impeachment lawyer David Schoen told Fox News on Tuesday that the team will be more prepared in the future after a first day widely panned by critics and supporters of Donald Trump alike.
Schoen told Sean Hannity that Bruce Castor, hadn’t planned to start his argument Tuesday but reassured MAGA world that they will do a better job in the future.
“So, I’m sure they will be very well prepared in the future and do a great job in the case,” Schoen said.
Castor received sharp criticism for his performance on Tuesday that included him praising some senators and only briefly mentioning the events of Jan. 6 that led to Donald Trump’s impeachment.
Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy who voted to say the trial is constitutional, a complete 180 from last month, said the Trump legal team appeared “disorganized”, “random” and at times “embarrassed to make their arguments.”
“It was disorganized, random, had nothing—they talked about many things but they didn’t talk about the issue at hand,” Cassidy said.
The impeachment trial will resume at noon on Wednesday. Each side will have up to 16 hours to make their case to the senators who will decide whether to convict Trump on the charge of inciting the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.
