From an interview with Jewish Insider:
Trump’s legal defense got off to a rocky start on Tuesday with a speech by Castor that was maligned by many, including a number of the former president’s closest allies. That speech was a “spur of the moment decision,” Schoen explained — Schoen himself was originally scheduled to deliver the opening argument.
“The House put on a pretty good presentation. [Castor] seemed to think he was the best lawyer on the team, or something. So he stood up and said, ‘I think I better jump in here,’” Schoen recounted. “He jumped in and obviously it was like a filibuster. It was not a good presentation.”
“I thought, ‘This guy’s career is going to disappear. I don’t know how he’s going to get up in the morning,’” Schoen added. “He still thought he did a good job.”

Trump impeachment defense attorney David Schoen told JI’s @marcrod97 that seeing the online speculation about his yarmulke “made me feel really awkward and kind of embarrassed.”https://t.co/wumEiBcNhV
