Trump’s new impeachment lawyer David Schoen also represented Roger Stone in Stone’s sentencing and appeal.

“I consider it a privilege to represent the 45th President,” Castor wrote. “The strength of our Constitution is about to be tested like never before in our history. It is strong and resilient. A document written for the ages, and it will triumph over partisanship yet again, and always.”
