Trump hires South Carolina lawyer Butch Bowers to defend him in Capitol riot impeachment trial, repo

Former President Donald Trump has hired a lawyer, South Carolina attorney Butch Bowers, to defend him at his Senate impeachment trial, which could start as early as next week.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a Trump loyalist, told fellow GOP senators on Thursday that Bowers had agreed to represent Trump in the case, where the former president is accused of inciting the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S Capitol, according to the D.C. newsletter Punchbowl.

The New York Times soon after confirmed that report, and noted that Trump’s other lawyers “had all bowed out” of representing him in what will be his second impeachment trial.

2. Here's the obvious suggestion

Hey Butch!

Get paid up front. Estimate the hours you'll need to spend on the case. Double it because you know it'll get screwed up since this is Trump. Then add and additional 50% for contingencies and protecting yourself when your client compromises your professional integrity.

Better yet, drop the case. It's a fool's errand and you probably now it. You just can't resist the publicity it will bring you, right? Sucker. If there's anything we've learned it's that Rick Wilson was right: Everything Trump Touches Dies.

5. If the GOP doesn't stop him from running again IMO he'll be back in 2024, possibly having built up

his base again. None of them will stand a chance without likely a struggle. FFS, they must be crazy if they let this ass continue.

11. Yes, all those 2024 wabnnabes love trumps followers, BUT

if trump is allowed to run in 2024 they are screwed. But they can't vote to indict him.

Another 'Catch 22'
