Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Donald Trump spent the dying weeks of his presidency vehemently denying the obvious fact that he had lost the 2020 election. In fact, his insistence that his “stolen victory” be his major defense in the impeachment trial against him was one reason why several lawyers decided not to represent him. 
But today, in a rambling and disjointed speech, Bruce Castor, who is one of two attorneys representing the former president, admitted that Trump was indeed voted out by “fed up” voters last November. Castor repeated this fact three times, directly contradicting one of the former president’s most-repeated lies.
Something tells me a certain someone is not gonna be happy with this performance. Maybe Rudy Giuliani should be standing by.
Watch for yourself:

“The people… are smart enough to pick a new administration if they don’t like the old one. And they just did.”
Donald Trump’s own lawyer just refuted the former president, who has refused to accept the results of the 2020 election. (Castor repeats this fact three times.)
