Anchor: A new Trump attorney gets acclimated. This is WBS News Radio, and it’s 4:24.

Bruce Castor, one of former President Trump’s new impeachment attorneys, says he just assumed the team was planning to plead guilty to the single charge of inciting an insurrection ahead of next week’s Senate impeachment trial.

Castor: I mean, that’s what I thought we were doing. Is that wrong? Could somebody tell me?

Anchor: Castor, a former prosecutor, was brought on this week, along with fellow attorney David Schoen, after five of the former president’s previous lawyers quit the team last week. And now he has some catching up to do.

Castor: It’s an impeachment, right? That’s the thing? Okay, that shouldn’t be too bad. Let’s see here, “incitement of insurrection.” Ooh, that sounds bad.

Anchor: Castor started getting down to work.

Castor: Okay, so first thing to do is plead not guilty, right? So let’s get going on that. Um, how do you spell “plead?”

Anchor: Soon, Castor was face-to-face with the daunting task of mounting a defense for a former president who was captured on every television station in the country appearing to promote violence at the Capitol building.

Castor: Here’s what I’m thinking: We plead insanity across the board. What do you think?
