Five impeachment lawyers left Trump a week before the case begins.
Former President Donald Trump is in his impeachment trial without lawyers. All five lawyers preparing his defence would have packed their bags. The case will begin in the Senate in a week.
CNN and Reuters news agency report this based on sources. Next week is the deadline for submitting essential documents. The House of Representatives has already voted for impeachment; the Senate must now determine whether he is guilty.
Trump’s impeachment is deployed for inciting violence and insurrection. Trump is said to have provoked the storming of the Capitol on January 6 in his speech.
