Trump Never Conceded He Lost, but His Impeachment Lawyer Did
WASHINGTON (AP) — One of the lawyers heading former President Donald Trump’s defense at his second impeachment trial did what Trump himself has not: conceded Joe Biden won the presidential election.
In opening remarks Tuesday, lawyer Bruce Castor said the American people are “smart enough to pick a new administration if they don’t like the old one, and they just did.”
The comments by Castor, a former county prosecutor in Pennsylvania, were a surprising contrast to Trump’s defiance.
The former president repeatedly disputed the results of the election, falsely claiming he won in a “landslide.”
Trump watched Tuesday’s proceedings from his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, where he was furious about his lawyers’ performance.
