Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow says he'd advise the president not to attend his impeachment trial

President Trump may "love" the idea of attending his Senate impeachment trial, but his lawyer Jay Sekulow thinks he needs to sit this one out.

While in Davos on Wednesday morning, Trump told reporters he thinks it would be great to watch the trial in person, sitting "right in the front row" so he can "stare into their corrupt faces." When asked about Trump's comments, Sekulow responded, "His counsel might recommend against that. That's not the way it works. Presidents don't do that."

Like the House managers, Trump's defense lawyers will have 24 hours over three days to argue their case. Sekulow said he doesn't yet know how much time they will use. "When you're in a proceeding like this, you have to be flexible, you have to be fluid," he added. "We're doing that."
