1. Trump just threw a monkey wrench into McConnell's best laid plan

But maybe Mitch can make sure they only talk in the middle of the night on day 2 of Trump's legal team making its case.

9. They're only "advisors" and will not be presenting the case to the Senate

Basically, Trump threw them a bone so they can claim that had something to do with Trump's acquittal.

21. You don't think Trump wants these dolts to have TV face time?

Trump fancies himself the best producer of reality TV and these guys are just his style.

13. Most of them are not

Stefanik and Lesko are not. Meadows does not even have a bachelor's degree according to Wikipedia

Zeldin and Collins are lawyers, as is Johnson

11. Window dressing.

They're just "advising" and not actually participating in the presentation of the defense. It's a way for Trump to throw his defenders a bone so they can claim they played a role in his acquittal.
