Former President Donald Trump's new legal team was announced Sunday after it was revealed the day previously that his entire team quit.

CNN's Jim Acosta tweeted a release from the Trump team announcing the two men who will lead up the effort. The release indicates that they're already turning away from Trump's claims of a "stolen election" defense and returning to the "it's unconstitutional to hold a trial" defense.

"Trial lawyers David Schoen and Bruce L. Castor Jr., will head his impeachment defense legal team, bringing national profiles and significant trial experience in high-profile cases to the effort. Notably, Schoen has already been working with the 45th President and other advisors to prepare for the upcoming trial and both Schoen and Castor agree that this impeachment is unconstitutional - a fact 45 Senators voted in agreement with last week," the release said.


Trump's lawyers make it sound like he's ready to go, despite upheaval in the legal team. So, it appears the case will move on as scheduled to begin Feb. 9.
