David Schoen, Donald Trump's Impeachment Lawyer, Representing Steve Bannon

David Schoen, one of the leading attorneys for Donald Trump during his second impeachment trial, is set to represent Steve Bannon after he was charged with contempt of Congress.

Schoen is listed in documents as being signed on to represent Bannon as the Trump ally is set to surrender to a court after criminal charges were filed against him last week.

Reuters reporter Jan Wolfe and Ryan Barber, justice reporter for Insider, tweeted out the court listing with Schoen's signature.

The Department of Justice (DoJ) announced on November 12 that a federal grand jury indicted Bannon on two counts of contempt of Congress after he failed to comply with a subpoena issued to him by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack of the Capitol.

Bannon, a former White House senior adviser, refused to hand over any documents in relation to the inquiry while citing Trump's executive privilege argument.

District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan rejected Trump's attempt to use executive privilege to keep the National Archives from releasing papers and conversations from his time in the White House on November 9, which led to increased calls for the DoJ to file criminal charges against Bannon.

Schoen, a Boston College Law School graduate, represented Trump in his impeachment trial where he was accused of inciting the riot at the Capitol after spending weeks spreading false voter fraud claims about the 2020 election.

Trump became the first president in history to be impeached twice, although the Senate acquitted him following the trial in February 2021.

On the first day of proceedings, Schoen said the impeachment trial against Trump would "tear this country apart."

He added: "They say you need this trial before the nation can heal, that the nation cannot heal without it. I say our nation cannot possibly heal with it."

As reported by Fox News, the attorney was also in talks to represent the billionaire, and convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein after he was charged with trafficking underage girls for sex before his death in August 2019.

Schoen said he did not believe Epstein's death in his New York cell was a suicide.

"I saw him a few days earlier," Schoen said on Fox Nation's Deep Dive in 2020.

"The reason I say I don't believe it was suicide is for my interaction with him that day. The purpose of asking me to come there that day and over the past previous couple of weeks was to ask me to take over his defense."

Schoen has been contacted for comment.
