Trump could also be represented by Jim Jordan in impeachment proceedings
Donald Trump has been involved in over 3,500 lawsuits throughout his professional career. He has a lot of experience with good and bad lawyers.
During the Mueller report, Trump had Ty Cobb, John Dowd and Jay Sekulow in his corner. In his first impeachment trial, Trump again had Sekulow, who represented him along with Pat Cipollone and Alan Dershowitz. Cipollone and Sekulow say they won’t be returning for a second try.
But when the president tried to challenge the election results back in November, his legal team looked very different. With every reputable lawyer turned down the case, Trump had to rely on his “elite strike force”.
This legal team, comprised of Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell, and Joe DeGenova, was a catastrophe. Powell, who frequently proposed ridiculous conspiracy theories, is being sued for billions by Dominion voting machines.
Giuliani was worse. Not only did he hold a press conference next to a sex shop, he also had hair dye dripped down his face at one hearing and openly gasping at another.
And now that Trump faces a new impeachment trial, he may have run out of lawyers to replace the old ones. According to a report by Bloomberg, he could reach out to supporters in Congress.
Bloomberg notes that Trump could be represented by Jim Jordan and Elise Stefanik. Jordan attended and graduated from law school, but he has not passed the bar in any state.
While she was attending and graduating from Harvard, Stefanik did not graduate from law and has no legal education.
