Schoen wrote that he was withdrawing his request because he was “concerned about the delay in the process in a process that I consider important to draw a conclusion for all concerned and for the country”.

Two people who are aware of what happened told CNN that Trump – who has a place in Florida and is ready for a calmer and potentially more lucrative phase of his presidency – does not want the trial to be further delayed, and he thought suspended for Saturday will extend the case for several days.
Trump himself, who comes up through several legal teams in preparation for the trial, is more concerned about the impact the trial may have on public opinion, according to one person who discussed the matter with him, rather than the possible outcome. Since leaving his office, Trump has spoken to business partners overseas several times about future projects.
The former president has been low-profile since he dropped out of Washington dramatically in the hours leading up to Biden’s swearing-in, and he can’t wait for his trial to end so he can start his post-presidential life, which people close to him said will probably include paid speeches overseas. and domestic rallies directed at those who crossed him politically. Trump, who is expected to stay in Florida during the trial, has repeatedly told people he thinks he will be fired a second time and is ready to move on.
He replaced the evenings at Mar-a-Lago and the nearby golf club, where one of the most recent evenings, cash was distributed to onlookers with adhesive tape.
His defense team was put together a little over a week after the five lawyers originally represented all the left-wing days before the due date of the legal briefing, which one person classified as a mutual decision, while another said the strategy was a difference. Now Trump is relying on Schoen and Bruce Castor to secure a second dismissal.
The staff of the two lawyers arrived in Washington on Monday to walk through the Senate floor where their client’s case will be presented. The walkthrough was almost the same as a year ago, although instead of Trump working in the vice president’s senate office, Trump’s team will set up shop in the adjoining room for this trial.
While their defense is expected to focus on the argument that it cannot be tried out of office, Trump has also told people that he wants his allegations of voter fraud to be included that are not supported by evidence.
One of his suggestions that his lawyers are likely to contain are videos made by Democrat lawmakers arguing that Trump’s pre-January 6-riot rhetoric should not be considered incitement. Sources skilled in the design, who spoke on an anonymous basis to share sensitive details, said Trump’s defense team plans to play videos by Democrat MPs Maxine Waters and Ayanna Pressley, among others.
The former president was not as close to defense as he was last time. He has been “investigated” better than expected because he is confident he will be acquitted, a man told CNN.
Instead, Trump was more preoccupied with the role he would play in the Republican Party. He was annoyed after Republican leader Kevin McCarthy supported Liz Cheney, House Republican No. 3, as Trump’s loyalists tried to oust him from his leadership role in a remarkable intra-party strife.
After McCarthy said Trump had some responsibility for the riots at the U.S. Capitol last month, he traveled to Trump’s private club to meet him in South Florida. While McCarthy sought access to Trump’s list of donors, one man made an effort to get McCarthy to realize that Trump’s influence in the GOP would remain here.
