Trump Says Does Not Really Care About Impeachment Trial at Senate

Republican Sen. Susan Collins said she's open to having witnesses at President Trump's Senate impeachment trial.

"The president has a spokesperson and I'm not the president's spokesperson", he said.

The New York Times story included new details on top officials pressuring President Trump to release the aid dollars to Ukraine.

Esper is quoted as saying that the aid has some 'really good benefits from it, ' including that Ukraine mainly bought USA -made military equipment with the tax dollars.

Billionaires and "their favorite presidential candidates" also were targeted in the speech, with Warren saying they have one goal: "to convince you that everything you imagine is impossible".

Collins, who has broken with the White House on issues in the past and is considered a swing vote, told Maine Public Radio on Tuesday that a potential framework for the coming Senate trial could be drawn from the impeachment trial of former President Clinton in the late 1990s. Trump and his supporters have espoused the theory that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 US election on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

'What I don't understand is why the House, having issued subpoenas, to Secretary Pompeo for example, did not seek to enforce those subpoenas in court, and instead rush [ed] to get articles of impeachment passed before Christmas, and yet have not transmitted them to us in the Senate, ' Collins said. "Andy and I observed active threats on the House floor that if the Blue Dog Democrats did not go along with the radical left of the Democratic Party and support impeachment, that they would not be supported by the DCCC".

Senator Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republican-controlled Senate and a staunch Trump defender against his impeachment, wants a sharply curtailed proceeding and a quick vote to clear Trump without calling any witnesses. The vote came months after a whistleblower complaint that alleged Trump tried to use the power of the presidency to coerce Ukraine to investigate the Bidens for his own political interests.

Sullivan does not believe the U.S. House has been fair and impartial. Trump released the assistance in September without Zelenskiy opening any Biden investigations.

"I think he's throwing gasoline on the fire with his communications", he said a year later of Trump's rhetoric.
