Former President Donald Trump has started putting together the defense team for his historic second Senate impeachment trial, starting with hiring South Carolina-based lawyer Butch Bowers. Trump adviser Jason Miller, who announced the hiring on Twitter, said Bowers "is well respected by both Republicans and Democrats and will do an excellent job defending President Trump." Asked later about Trump's legal team, Graham told reporters: "Well, I think he's going to have a good one. Nikki Haley's attorney, Butch Bowers, addresses the South Carolina House Ethics Committee in Columbia on June 28, 2012. Mark Sanford when he faced impeachment in the South Carolina House in 2009.

Former President Donald Trump faces numerous legal issues at the federal and state levels that could last for years. Trump could face criminal and civil matters at the federal, state, and local levels. By doing so, the now ex-president opened himself up to federal, state, and local prosecution for election-law violations, several election-law experts told Insider. Whether Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr does anything is another matter. Three Democratic members of Congress, in two separate requests filed in late December, have asked the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission to investigate whether the company violated election laws.

Rudy Giuliani told ABC News that he would not be able to represent President Trump during his second impeachment trial because he himself is a witness in the case. Giuliani appeared with Trump at the January 6 "Save America" rally where Trump is alleged to have incited an insurrection, and called for "trial by combat." It was widely expected that Giuliani, who served as lead counsel on the president's various challenges to the 2020 election, would head up Trump's impeachment legal team. Rudy Giuliani now says he won't be a part of President Trump's impeachment defense team because he was a witness to what happened. Two sources close to the White House had previously told Reuters that Giuliani was on the shortlist to represent Trump during the president's second impeachment trial of his term.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is considering a vote to convict President Donald Trump in an impeachment trial, Republican sources told Insider. "It's the time to shiv him and then brace for the fallout," said one GOP source with ties to the Trump White House. Sources close to the White House say the president's team remains in chaos after last week's riot. They also don't believe McConnell has the votes to convict him, according to another Republican close to the White House. "He's only going to get stronger," one of the sources close to the White House said, "if he survives all this."

No invitation for a meeting has been extended from the White House, Biden transition officials said. But conversations between Biden's transition team and the White House have escalated to more senior ranks this week. Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, has spoken with senior Biden transition officials within the past 24 hours, Biden and Trump officials said Wednesday evening. "He's got to get his branding back up or they're in trouble," a Republican close to the White House said. But others who were involved in impeachment in 2019, such as Alan Dershowitz, said they have not been contacted by the White House for any such assignment.

Trump, who would be the first president to be impeached twice, remains both defiant and sullen, said one former White House official who is familiar with his current discussions. Unlike his previous impeachment, Trump has few public defenders and the White House hasn’t been making efforts to marshal them. There have been no White House talking points distributed to surrogates to respond to the Capitol riot. With less than a week left in the White House, it is still unclear where Trump will be on Inauguration Day. Trump said he will not attend Biden’s swearing-in ceremony and some advisers have said they expect him to leave the White House before Inauguration Day.

Pence made that clear in a Tuesday night letter on White House stationary to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "They're telling him he can't," one of the GOP sources close to the White House said. And a wave of recent departures also came from top White House staffers citing the attack on the Capitol.. "This is him by himself and it is something that has never happened before," said one former senior Trump administration official. I just think that's a goofy theory," said the former Trump administration official.

(Reuters) - President Donald Trump may turn to Rudy Giuliani to defend him against possible impeachment over his role in last week’s violent siege of the U.S. Capitol, according to two people familiar with the matter. REUTERS/Jim BourgOne of the sources, an outside adviser to the White House, said Giuliani was expected to play a lead role in any impeachment effort. The other source familiar with the situation said Giuliani, a personal attorney of the president, would likely provide the kind of representation Trump wants. Giuliani, 76, led the legal team that tried unsuccessfully to overturn Trump’s election defeat. Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard Law professor emeritus who argued as part of the defense in Trump’s impeachment trial last year, told Reuters on Friday that he would be honored to help defend Trump given the First Amendment issues, if asked.

President Trump is considering appointing Rudy Giuliani and the high-profile lawyer Alan Dershowitz to his defense team in the event he faces another impeachment trial, CNN reports. Trump's original legal team who defended him during his first impeachment trial has been sidelined. President Trump is considering appointing his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and the high-profile lawyer Alan Dershowitz to his defense team in case he faces another impeachment trial this week, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN. Meanwhile, Trump's original team of lawyers who defended him during his first impeachment trial in December 2019, are unlikely to be rejoining him, CNN reports. Trump was impeached by the House in December 2019 on articles for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said. Plans for future armed protests were proliferating on and off Twitter, the company added, including a proposed secondary attack on the Capitol on Jan. 17. There was no immediate response from the White House to the move by Twitter. While he remains in office, Trump would still have access to the official @POTUS presidential account. Biden told reporters he viewed Trump as “unfit” for office but said he would let Congress decide what to do.

Simon & Schuster Cancels Plans for Senator Hawley’s Book

During most election cycles, publishers are quick to snap up books from the former president and first lady and from former administration officials. Simon & Schuster has been subject to public pressure campaigns in the past when it has worked with controversial authors. It’s unclear if Mr. Hawley will have to return his book advance, or whether Simon & Schuster will forfeit it. After the company canceled Mr. Yiannopoulos’s book, he sued Simon & Schuster for alleged breach of contract but later dropped the suit. It also remains to be seen whether Mr. Hawley will seek another publisher or self-publish the book.

President Donald Trump faces numerous legal issues at the federal and state levels that could occupy his time for years to come. Trump's legal turmoil involves the president's administration, campaign, inaugural committee, and businesses interests. The outgoing president could face criminal and civil matters at the federal, state, and local levels. During an hourlong phone call, Trump asked Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, to "find" 11,780 votes in Georgia — a state that Trump lost by roughly that many votes. Three Democratic members of Congress, in two separate requests filed during late December, have asked the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission to investigate whether it violated election laws.

Potential witnesses could always invoke the Fifth Amendment for state crimes. But criminal law experts say Trump probably doesn't have much to worry about. The Fifth Amendment offers wide protectionsProsecutors can still try other ways to force testimony. AP Photo/Evan VucciThe Fifth Amendment is simply too important to a democratic way of life to be waved away so easily, Zelin said. "If there's anything else that could be prosecuted for, other than what he was pardoned for, he still has the Fifth Amendment," Dershowitz said.

Dershowitz said that Trump's campaign needed a "perfect storm" in order to invalidate the election results, with courts, governors, and state election officials aiding his cause. "Whether you like that or you don't like it, that's the reality that the Trump team has to face." "The three justices that President Trump appointed, his three justices, voted not to hear the case," Dershowitz said. Whether you like that or you don't like it, that's the reality that the Trump team has to face." The Supreme Court ruling on Friday came just days after the court declined to take up a similar Republican-backed case that focused on Pennsylvania's election results.

Yet, two years ago at the Criminal Justice Summit at the Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood, Kardashian West told moderator Van Jones: "I've always said, 'Use me.' It seems like Kardashian West and other advocates have reached out to the White House and been rebuffed. Kardashian West needs to assure people that maintaining her social justice branding is less important than becoming the bulldog she needs to be. Johnson sought clemency for decades; Kardashian West turned it around in less than a week. But even if he doesn’t sit down with her, Kardashian West needs to try a little harder.

In a rambling 46-minute speech on Wednesday, President Donald Trump openly expressed concerns about facing prosecution for state crimes upon leaving office. President Donald Trump voiced his concerns about the prospect of being prosecuted by New York officials after he leaves the White House during a 46-minute, lie-filled speech he videotaped and posted to Facebook on Wednesday. New York Attorney General Letitia James and District Attorney of Manhattan Cyrus Vance are conducting both civil and criminal investigations into whether Trump and the Trump Organization committed tax, bank, and insurance fraud. But the Justice Department and New York state might not be so ready to play along. But, Dershowitz added, "The New York authorities will stop at nothing to go after [Trump]."

Enter the Justice Department, which in a court document released on Tuesday acknowledged a probe into an alleged presidential pardon "bribery conspiracy scheme." President-elect Joe Biden has expressed a desire to move beyond the Trump era, but the Department of Justice and officials in New York state may have other plans. All the while, Trump has denied wrongdoing, and he remained typically defiant Tuesday as news of a federal pardon probe broke. The White House and Justice Department did not respond Wednesday to requests for comment. Meanwhile, the Justice Department, led by Attorney General Bill Barr, has also taken recent action that favors Trump.

WASHINGTON — When President Trump pardoned Michael T. Flynn on Wednesday, he did more than wipe clean the record of his first national security adviser, who had twice pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. He also bolstered the hopes of a wide array of clemency seekers that he might deliver a wave of pardons and commutations before leaving office. Among the others looking for pardons are two former Trump campaign advisers, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos, who like Mr. Flynn were convicted in cases stemming from the special counsel’s Russia investigation. But lawyers and others who have been in touch with the White House say they anticipate that Mr. Trump will use his authority in cases that extend beyond those involving the special counsel’s inquiry and the lengthy cast of aides and associates who have gotten in legal trouble since he first ran for the presidency. Alan Dershowitz, the law professor who represented Mr. Trump during his impeachment trial, is advising two of his clients — a New Jersey man serving more than 20 years for defrauding investors, and a billionaire businessman convicted in what’s been called “one of North Carolina’s worst government corruption scandals” — on whether to seek clemency.
