Impeachment trial termed ’unconstitutional’ by Trump lawyers

Lawyers who are representing former President Donald Trump have slammed the impeachment trial and have argued it is unconstitutional to impeach a former president. They also argued that Mr. Trump’s speech did not directly lead to the deadly siege on the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6. The defense brief has argued that Mr. Trump’s speech was protected under the First Amendment.

He was impeached during his term before he left office. You can have the trial at any point after that. This is a BS talking point. Don't fall for this nonsense.

There is already precedent for impeachment after a governmental official leaves office. Believe this spans back to the 1870’s.

Does he have a lawyer yet? Lol I heard he's having trouble finding representation. Maybe he could try a publicly appointed attorney 🤣😭

What I think is that they’re afraid of Trump running again and might win. That sounds a whole lot like what Russia is doing to Alexi Navali. It’s very anti democracy
