Trump's Impeachment Attorney Just Made A Surprising Admission

After the presidential election in 2020, former President Donald Trump disagreed with the results, even after Joe Biden officially won (via BuzzFeed News). While giving a speech on Jan. 6, he said, "We will stop the steal. Today, I will lay out just some of the evidence proving that we won this election, and we won it by a landslide. This was not a close election." This was followed by the riot at the Capitol, which led to Trump being charged with incitement of insurrection and impeached for a second time (via BBC News).

It has been confirmed that there was no widespread fraud in the election, and Trump's legal challenges were all shut down, as reported by MarketWatch. And when Inauguration Day rolled around, Trump skipped the ceremony and never offered up his congratulations to Biden. When his second impeachment trial started on Tuesday though, one of the lawyers heading up Trump's defense was able to admit that Trump lost and Biden replaced him

Bruce Castor said 'the American people just spoke,' leading to Trump being 'furious'

"The American people just spoke, and they just changed administrations," stated Bruce Castor Jr. (via The Associated Press). He went on to say that Americans are "smart enough to pick a new administration if they don't like the old one, and they just did."

Castor also said that Trump can't be impeached now, as the Constitution says the punishment for it shall not extend further than removal from office. "President Trump no longer is in office," he said. "The object of the Constitution has been achieved. He was removed by the voters."

According to The New York Times, Trump watched the trial from his new home in Florida, and he was apparently "furious" about his lawyers' performance. Since he has been banned from social media, though, he was not able to share his thoughts with the world. Twitter's chief financial officer Ned Segal went as far as to say that the ban is permanent, even if Trump were to run for office and win again (via CNBC).
