That Didn't Last Long: Raleigh Lawyer Josh Howard Leaves Trump Defense Team


White-collar defense lawyer Josh Howard was only hired about three days ago as a part of Donald J. Trump's impeachment trial defense team. Maggie Haberman reported this morning that Howard has abruptly left the team, one of five who discovered they couldn't work with Trump's insistence that there was mass election fraud and that the election was stolen from him. The legal team apparently wanted to focus on the legality of convicting a president after he's left office. "Trump was not receptive to the discussions about how they should proceed in that regard" (CNN).
