Trump chooses former Montgomery County DA Bruce Castor, Jr. to defend him at his upcoming Senate impeachment trial.

In the lead for Trump’s impeachment trial is former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr, writes Jeremy Roebuck for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

In a statement released Sunday night, Trump said Castor will work along with a new counsel, Alabama criminal defense lawyer David Schoen, saying this new team will bring “national profiles and significant trial experience” to his case.

Over the weekend, the former president broke with his previous team of lawyers disagreeing over defense strategy.

Montco’s Castor, of Lower Salford, made his name know in the 2000s as a top prosecutor after a string of positions in county government, a short stint as PA’s Acting Attorney General, and as a defense witness at Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial, among other local cases.

Castor must now pull from his years of law experience to defend the twice-impeached former president.

The case is scheduled to begin next week.
