With Speaker Nancy Pelosi expected to send the two articles of impeachment over to the Senate sometime this week, a move that would nudge the Republican-led Senate to begin the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump, the president is once again sharing his opinion on how he thinks the trial should go, and who should be called as a witness.
Trump has said that he would like to see the Bidens called in as witnesses, now he wants House Intel Chief Rep. Adam Schiff and Speaker Nancy Pelosi called in to testify as witnesses.
If Pelosi does send over the articles of impeachment to the Senate, the measures would be all-but dead on arrival, as Sen. Mitch McConnell has already signaled that he would have a quick vote to end the debate once and for all.
But now the chance of an actual trial has increased as President Trump himself has openly stated that he wanted to have a public trial.
Whether the senate conducts a trial or just quickly votes on the articles of impeachment, or if Pelosi decides to drag out the process to election day, impeaching Trump could turn out to be a self-inflicted fatal wound for Democrats.
Why did Nervous Nancy allow corrupt politician Shifty Schiff to lie before Congress? He must be a Witness, and so should she!
