Trump says Senate giving ’credibility’ to impeachment by holding trial

US President Donald Trump has tweeted that the Senate risked giving credibility to the ’impeachment hoax’ by conducting a trial. He added that the impeachment trial should not even be allowed to proceed.

It’s not an impeachment, an impeachment is by Partisan, both sides agree there is an issue and there is at least one signature from the other side. This is a Democratic coup

Trump is being a bit bipolar on whether he wants a trial in the Senate or not.

Watched an interview with Steve Bannon yesterday and he strongly suggests that Trump delay the 'State of the Union' until after the Senate trial is done. That way he won't have the trial looming over him and he can also use it as a victory lap.

It is already incredible because of the way the impeachment hearings were conducted.

Trump is wrong here regarding the credibility issue. If they don't go through with this then it looks like the Dems are right. This process will put the whole thing to rest, at least in theory.

the process is clear. the Senate conducts a trial when they receive the articles. if they don't receive them, they don't have to do anything.

It’s likely theater on his part imo. It definitely is on the Democrats side.

I hate to say this, bit on legal grounds I completely agree with Trump. There is no reason that these articles should be given any consideration for trial. They were lazily passed without proving any conduct that rises to high crimes or misdemeanors. They rushed to a vote without litigating the subpoenas on white house officials to ascertain criminal conduct. If they want to pass legitimate articles of impeachment following the legal process and providing evidence for the indictment then we can have this talk again.

Why bother seeing why we arrested someone, just post his bail because he's a "nice guy" and maybe next time if we're in the same room as him when he breaks the law we can charge him then 🤷‍♂️ I love how we go from blowjobs being impeachable to breaking the law is within the constitution, all is well, do''t ask questions what are you trying to catch me in a lie? How dare you! 🤦‍♂️ give me a break

Yep. He also probably knows that whatever the outcome, the senators who vote against conviction are going to face a more mobilised Democratic electorate in their races for re-election (following on 2018), meanwhile the Republicans aren't as united on the issue as he had hoped. Whether impeachment is warranted or not doesn't affect this.

Ok, impeachment has been a train wreck. But Trump should really make up his mind on whether he wants a trial to clear his name or doesn't want a trial because it is a sham. Can't have it both ways.
