Trump Impeachment Lawyer Interviewed About His Jewish Religious Observance

Jewish Press yesterday carried an interesting interview (full text) with David Schoen, one of  Donald Trump's lead impeachment trial defense lawyers. The paper describes the interview:

Two weeks ago, David Schoen – the lead lawyer for Donald Trump at his impeachment trial, and an Orthodox Jew – made headlines when he asked if the president’s trial could be suspended on Shabbos. Schoen’s observance became a hot topic again a few days later when he covered his head with his hand several times as took sips of water while speaking on the Senate floor.

The Jewish Press spoke to him yesterday about these and other topics.
