President Donald Trump has called for the immediate trial of his impeachment in the US Senate.
The American president disclosed this on Twitter after the speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, refused to give a timeline on when the articles of impeachment would be transmitted to the Senate.
"So after the Democrats gave me no Due Process in the House, no lawyers, no witnesses, no nothing, they now want to tell the Senate how to run their trial. Actually, they have zero proof of anything, they will never even show up. They want out. I want an immediate trial!
"The House Democrats were unable to get even a single vote from the Republicans on their Impeachment Hoax. The Republicans have never been so united! The Dem’s case is so bad that they don’t even want to go to trial!
"The reason the Democrats don’t want to submit the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate is that they don’t want corrupt politician Adam Shifty Schiff to testify under oath, nor do they want the Whistleblower, the missing second Whistleblower, the informer, the Bidens, to testify!" Trump tweeted.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that President Donald Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives of the United States of America.
The members of the US House of Representatives voted 230 in favour of removing Trump against 197 for him not to be impeached on the first article of impeachment - abuse of power.
On the second article, which is obstruction of congress, the federal lawmakers voted 229 to 198 for Trump to be impeached.
With the votes, Trump became the third president to be impeached in the history of the United States.
The president was accused of using his public office to coerce a foreign government into attacking his political rival and frustrating Congress' investigation into the matter.
