Donald Trump will be represented at his impeachment trial by South Carolina lawyer Butch Bowers, who’s best known for helping save a former governor from being removed from office following a scandal over an extramarital affair.
Trump’s adviser Jason Miller confirmed the hiring in a statement posted to Twitter on Thursday. Trump, who left office Wednesday after one term, will go on trial soon in the U.S. Senate after being impeached in the House for inciting an insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6 that led to five deaths.
Excited to announce that Columbia, SC-based Butch Bowers has joined President Trump’s legal team. Butch is well respected by both Republicans and Democrats and will do an excellent job defending President Trump.11:02 PM · Jan 21, 2021
