(PresidentialWire.com)- President Donald Trump has chosen a lawyer to represent him in the upcoming Senate witch hunt impeachment hearing, who this week revealed that he isn’t worried about what Democrats or the media think about him.
The lawyer, Karl “Butch” Bowers from South Carolina, spoke to The Washington Post about the upcoming unconstitutional trial being pushed by Democrats. He explained why he chose to represent the president, and why he doesn’t care what the media says.
“It’s who I am. It’s what I do. It’s all about the rule of law in the Constitution,” he said. “I’m not worried what other people think.”
Given how relentless the media and Democrats were to President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani during the election fraud evidentiary hearings, it seems almost certain that Bowers will face the same treatment.
Bowers also said that he hasn’t been watching the media coverage of the upcoming trial.
It comes after 45 Republican Senators voted to remind the Senate that the impeachment trial was unconstitutional as President Trump is now a private citizen. And with those 45 Republicans refusing to go along with the trial, Democrats don’t have the numbers to convict President Trump.
Some 67 votes are required to convict President Trump, meaning 17 of those 45 Senators need to have their minds changed.
The former president is accused of inciting a riot in Washington, D.C., on January 6. Democrats claim that the president encouraged his supporters to begin a violent insurrection in the Capitol Building, but have provided no evidence to support this claim.
Republicans roundly condemned the violence and President Donald Trump told extremists to remain peaceful and go home on the day that the incident occurred.
Bowers didn’t give the media much to work with when pushed about the president’s case and legal argument.
“You’ll see our case when we present it,” he said, “and I think the facts and the law will speak for themselves.”
Bowers did reveal that the two weeks he has before the trial begins has been enough to prepare a defense.
“Just like in any other endeavor, sometimes you get a ton of time as a lawyer, sometimes you get a short period of time, and you just adjust as needed,” he said.
When the Democrats know that the president didn’t commit the crime they accuse him of, and they know they don’t have the votes to convict, is the hearing anything more than just…a show trial?
A witch hunt?
