Graham said Trump is still pulling together a legal team but that Bowers would act as the “anchor.”

“I think [Trump’s] gonna have a good [legal team],” Graham said. “Butch Bowers I think will be sort of the anchor tenant. I’ve known Butch for a long time, solid guy. And I think, you know, over time, they'll put the team together.”

The House voted Jan. 13 to impeach Trump for a second time during his tenure. The article accuses him of inciting insurrection after a mob of his supporters overtook the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6 in an effort to stop the Electoral College vote count.
