President Trump urged Senate Republicans Thursday to set a date for his impeachment trial, saying it would challenge House Democrats either to stop stalling the process or “default” their case.
“Pelosi feels her phony impeachment HOAX is so pathetic she is afraid to present it to the Senate, which can set a date and put this whole SCAM into default if they refuse to show up!” Mr. Trump tweeted. “The Do Nothings are so bad for our Country!”
Earlier the president criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for balking at sending the House-passed articles of impeachment, approved Wednesday night, to the Senate for a trial.
“Now the Do Nothing Party want[s] to Do Nothing with the Articles & not deliver them to the Senate, but it’s Senate’s call!” Mr. Trump tweeted.
Mrs. Pelosi said she will wait to send the articles to the Republican-led Senate until she and her troops are assured there will be a fair trial.
Senate Republicans have virtually guaranteed they will acquit Mr. Trump of the accusations of abuse of power and obstructing Congress over his dealings with Ukraine.
