The lawyer defending Donald Trump in the Senate impeachment trial says it has “not been communicated” to him that the former president is furious or angry with him over his defense team’s showing despite reports indicating otherwise.

"My reaction is you need to check those sources because that has not been communicated to me by the president or anybody associated with the president," Bruce Castor told Fox News Tuesday night. "Including Mark Meadows, who specifically came to the Capitol yesterday to tell me don’t read news coverage."

Fox earlier Tuesday reported that Trump was “furious” and “beyond angry” over Castor’s effort.

Meadows, said Castor, also said “everything is going fine” and to “continue doing what you’re doing.”

Castor also admitted to a last-minute strategy change following damning video evidence and constitutional appeals from House prosecutors.

"I'll be quite frank with you, we changed what we were going to do on account that we thought the House managers' presentation was well done," Castor said in his opening statements, which he concluded with an admission that Trump “was removed from office by the voters.”

"The American people just spoke, and they just changed administrations,” he said, appearing to undermine Trump's argument that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him. Castor and his team have sought to argue that convicting an impeached president who is no longer in office is unconstitutional.

"The people are smart enough to pick a new administration if they don’t like the old one,” Castor said. "And they just did."
