Top Trump impeachment lawyer Bowers leaves team: reports

Butch Bowers, the lead attorney that was slated to represent former President Trump during his second impeachment trial, has left the legal team, according to multiple reports. 

Last week, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). announced that Bowers, a South Carolina attorney, would act as the Trump legal team’s “anchor” during the trial.

“I think [Trump’s] gonna have a good [legal team],” Graham said. “Butch Bowers I think will be sort of the anchor tenant. I’ve known Butch for a long time, solid guy. And I think, you know, over time, they’ll put the team together.”

Now, with less than two weeks to go before the impeachment trial is set to begin, Bowers is reportedly no longer on the defense team, two attorneys close to the situation told Politico. 

Deborah Barbier, another South Carolina lawyer, has also dropped off the Trump legal team, one person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press.

The decision was a mutual, a person familiar with Trump’s legal strategy told Politico.

On Jan. 13, days before he left office, Trump was impeached by the House for the second time in his presidency on the charge of “incitement of insurrection,” for his involvement in the Jan. 6 riots at the Capitol that resulted in several deaths. 

Trump’s team and Bowers did not immediately respond to The Hill’s requests for comments.
