Trump relented and instead hunkered down at the White House to watch television images of the mob rioting he is accused of triggering. Trump’s last days in the White House have been marked by rage and turmoil, multiple sources said. The White House declined to comment for this story. If convicted by the Senate in a trial that would occur after he has left the White House, Trump could be banned from holding federal office again. “I would be floored if that were to happen,” another White House official said.

Eastman, 60, who made unsubstantiated claims of election fraud at the rally, would neither confirm nor deny whether he will represent Trump, citing attorney-client privilege. A former clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Eastman represented Trump last month in unsuccessful challenges to the election. He does not think Trump has culpability, either. Giuliani’s own pressure on Ukraine helped lead to Trump’s impeachment trial. Jay Sekulow, another personal lawyer for Trump who played a role during the first impeachment, also is not expected to be involved.

Aides talked President Trump out of showing up in person to defend himself at Wednesday's impeachment vote in the House of Representatives, reported The New York Times. Aides are said to have convinced the president it would be a bad idea to offer a defense during Wednesday's vote. In Wednesday's vote, Trump was impeached by 232-197 on a single charge of "incitement of insurrection" at last Wednesday's riot at the US Capitol. Having been kicked off Twitter after the attack on the Capitol, Trump is without his favored platform to intervene and attempt to shape events. "Violence and vandalism have no place in our country... No true supporter of mine would ever endorse political violence," Trump said.

Mark, he is listening to some extent - and to be clear, I don’t think he’s going to testify - but there are so, so few people around him right now. The White House counsel, Pat Cipollone, has endured basically daily abuse since election day but has stayed on anyway. He will not be involved in an impeachment defense.

(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.

Dominion Voting Systems on Friday brought a $1.3 billion defamation suit against the conservative lawyer Sidney Powell, alleging that her false and outlandish claims about fraud in the 2020 election "caused unprecedented harm." Dominion, the supplier of voting machines to Georgia and other states and counties, brought the suit in the U.S. District Court in Washington. The suit lists "Defending the Republic, Inc.," a company Powell has used for fundraising purposes, as a defendant alongside Powell. Clare, speaking to reporters on a call after the suit was filed, suggested that Trump himself could be sued. "Sidney Powell and others created and disseminated these lies, assisted and amplified by a range of media platforms," he said.

A reporter during a press call noted that Trump had called on his supporters at a rally before the riot to fight for him. The Times also reported Thursday that Trump since Election Day has told advisors that he is considering pardoning himself for any crimes, and has asked whether he should do so. For weeks after Election Day, Trump, his lawyers and allies had waged a long-shot effort to overturn Biden's win by filing lawsuits.

Dominion lawyers sent a similar letter to Pat Cipollone, President Donald Trump's White House counsel, also obtained by Insider. Both letters ask the recipients to preserve copies of documents and communications "referring or relating in any way to Dominion."

Earlier this month, Dominion sent a letter to Powell demanding that she retract her claims and threatening to sue her for defamation as well. Legal ethics experts previously told Insider that Giuliani and Powell have been "playing with fire" with their election conspiracy theory lawsuits and were at risk of court sanctions and possibly disbarment.
