South Carolina lawyer Butch Bowers will represent former President Trump if there is a Senate impeachment trial

"Excited to announce that Columbia, SC-based Butch Bowers has joined President Trump’s legal team," Trump advisor Jason Miller tweeted. "Butch is well respected by both Republicans and Democrats and will do an excellent job defending President Trump." 

The House voted to impeach Trump twice during his four-year term in office. The Senate acquitted Trump on both articles of impeachment after the first time the House voted to impeach him. The second House impeachment vote came earlier this month, shortly before Biden was slated to be sworn in as the next commander-in-chief. If the Senate holds an impeachment trial on that recent article of impeachment, it would occur during Biden's presidency.
