Trump’s impeachment defense is ‘the Four Seasons Landscaping of the legal profession’
The disorder of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment attorney Bruce Castor reminds Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) Of a previous fiasco that involved another Trump attorney.
During a Tuesday night interview with MSNBC presenter Joy Reid, Coons said he didn’t think Castor or his colleague David Schoen had even prepared for their opening arguments. “I have to tell you that this was the legal profession’s four season landscaping as I listened to these two,” Coons said. “It was one of the weakest arguments I have ever heard.”

This was a call back to the November 7th press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia. During this Rudy Giuliani production, the Trump team discussed its legal challenges for the Pennsylvania voting process. It was a widespread event where most people believed Giuliani was upset and wanted to hold the press conference at the luxury Four Seasons hotel, not a landscaping company near a crematorium and sex shop.
Joking aside, Coons said Castor “went on and on with no clear focus or purpose,” adding that the “reasoning [was] not well founded, not well thought out and not very convincing. “In contrast, he found the property managers” made a “focused, concrete, persuasive argument, and they had quotes from over 150 constitutional law professors and scholars, from conservative to conservatively progressive, to back them up. “
After hearing from both sides, Coons said he “wondered how anyone could have voted today that this was an unconstitutional process.” He also made it clear that he believes Trump must be indicted because “if we don’t hold him accountable this time” it will “advance the idea that a president is not bound by the limits of the constitution”.
