“This is not an election between Republicans and Democrats. This is not a fight between liberals and conservatives. This is nothing less than an epic struggle for the future of this country between Dark and Light, between the godly and the godless, between Good and Evil. And we will win this fight—or America will step off into a thousand years of darkness. We dare not fail!”
- Roger Stone @ Stop The Steal Rally Washington DC Jan 6th
Trump's entire legal team for his impeachment trial quit last night - citing that he won't let go of his "this election was stolen from me" angle as the main thrust of his defense. This will likely be his defense at the trial.
And he's furious that he's unable to punish the sitting president with any kind of legal retort, which he insists he's able to do (but no one was allowed to when he was in the chair). His legal team obviously disagreed.
So Maggie Haberman is reporting that the cheap bastard wants to save money on lawyers since the Senate signalled it's acquitting him. And he wants to push the fraud theory, which real lawyers won't do, ethically. Also (and this is insane) Bannon is telling him to represent himself in the Senate. That would turn the trial into TV event of the century. Which is what he wants.
Trump raised $170 million for his legal issues, didn't want to pay the 3 mil his lawyers were charging.
No wonder he hired Cosby and Stone's lawyers.
