2020 ELECTION/IMPEACHMENT: “Donald Trump’s lead defense attorney for the upcoming Senate impeachment trial said Wednesday [Feb. 3, 2021] he has not been pressured to reprise the former president’s unsubstantiated claims that the election was ‘stolen’ from him, insisting that his defense of Trump will focus strictly on ‘technical’ arguments.

The comments from Bruce Castor, a former Philadelphia-area district attorney, come a day after his team’s first official response to the impeachment charge explicitly doubled down on the former president’s false allegations about widespread fraud in the 2020 election…

The filing also maintains that Trump has a First Amendment right to express his opinion that the election results were inaccurate or disputed.”
