Trump goes after Democrats over impeachment

Trump goes after Democrats over impeachment

Trump delayed almost $400 million in aide as Ukraine battled Russian Federation on its border while he pushed the country's new president to investigate political rival Joe Biden. Pelosi said she has not eliminated the possibility of ever subpoenaing and going forward with former national security advisor John Bolton. "A vast majority want the do-nothing Democrats to move on to other things now".

"They take an oath to have a fair trial and we think that would be with witnesses and documentation". Let's be optimistic about the future, a future that will not have Donald Trump in the White House.

Fifty-one senators can vote to subpoena witnesses in an impeachment trial, meaning that if one more Republican senator joins the 47 Democratic senators, the group could force McConnell to subpoena Bolton, who has said he would testify if subpoenaed.

First Mr Trump was suggesting his own ideas for trial witnesses, then he said nearly the exact opposite on Sunday by tweeting that the trial shouldn't happen at all.

Mr Trump first said on Sunday that it's Ms Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff who should both testify, which would be unlikely. "However, we want the American people to see the truth, and why are [Republicans] afraid of the truth?"

A major difference between Pelosi and McConnell is whether witnesses will be called.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said House Democrats will determine on Tuesday when to send formal impeachment charges against President Donald Trump to the Senate and warned that Republicans will pay a political price for denying a trial with witnesses.

In a telephone interview with Reuters from his home state of Texas, Gramm said he did not believe there was even a need for witnesses in Trump's trial. Democrats are certain that the president violated his duty to the country and equally sure that there's zero chance that the necessary two-thirds of the Senate - a share that would require 20 or more Republicans - will vote to remove him from office.

McConnell is reluctant to pursue any more witnesses at all, wary of dragging out the Senate trial.

'I have always said I would send them over. Participants in the meeting, held a few weeks before the formal floor votes in the House, reportedly agreed that it'd be in the president's interest to have "a full trial", of "some length", featuring a "factual affirmative defense on the merits". Warren says she's prepared to spend days in the Senate, then fly back to Iowa for evening campaigning "if that's what it takes".

She continued, "Everything that he has done, whether it's in Syria vis-a-vis the Turks, whether it's been in Ukraine in terms of withholding assistance as they try to fight the Russians, his denial about their role in our election then and now-all roads lead to Putin".

The Democrat-led House impeached Trump last month for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, charges the White House has refuted. Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican, that would allow a senator to offer a motion to dismiss if the House did not transmit the articles of impeachment within 25 days.

A Morning Consult poll showed that 57 percent of registered voters want the Senate to call additional witnesses to the impeachment trial, while only 24% do not.

Trump spent the weekend presenting his aggressive moves against Iran as a contrast to alleged Democratic inaction domestically while impeachment has played out. But they won't have to make a final decision for some time under this format.
