Trump’s Impeachment Team Refuses To Call Him A Former President

The core of Donald Trump’s impeachment defense is that he’s a civilian, making it unconstitutional for the U.S. Senate to move on with a trial.

The only issue with that argument is that the very same group of attorneys are likewise declining to acknowledge that Trump lost the election and is a previous president, not the present resident of the Oval Workplace.

As Dave Weigel of The Washington Post kept in mind on Monday after the ex-president’s legal group launched a declaration, “The Trump office’s insistence on never calling him ‘former’ president while screaming that he’s a private citizen is genuinely funny. How many private citizens have official seals[?]”

Weigel went on to describe the fantastic lengths to which Trump’s defense group goes to not describe him as the previous president of the United States.

Trump’s vulnerable ego is damaging his defense group’s argument

If Donald Trump’s legal group truly wished to lean in on its “private citizen” impeachment defense, then they would consistently describe him as a previous president.

However as conservative analyst Costs Kristol stated on Monday, Trump’s ego is standing in the method of that technique.

“Trump’s vanity requires it to be ‘President Donald J. Trump’s legal team,’” Kristol stated.  “Trump’s defense strategy requires him to be merely ‘a private citizen.’”

It’s not a surprise that Donald Trump had a hard time to discover any attorneys going to represent him in the Senate impeachment trial.
