On Sunday, an announcement was released from Trump’s office saying two lawyers; now appointed, have been working with Trump and other advisors in preparing for the trial.

Trump’s adviser, Jason Miller, confirmed the reports of a reshuffle of the team on Saturday evening.

The two new lawyers will represent the former president in defence for the trial on February 8. David Schoen, an attorney from Alabama and Bruce Castor Jr. who is a former prosecutor in Pennsylvania.

“It is an honor to represent the 45th President, Donald J. Trump, and the United States Constitution,” Schoen said in the statement.

It was noted that Trump, regardless, would not appear in person to defend himself against charges following riots at the Capitol on January 6 in Washington, DC.
