Trump Demands Quick End To “Impeachment Hoax”

The Guardian reports:

Trump has again weighed in on the looming impeachment trial over Twitter, dismissing the controversy as a “con game” and calling for a rapid end to the matter.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi has not yet transmitted the aricles of impeachment to the Senate, but many expect her to do so this week. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has made clear the delay will not affect his handling of the trial.

Once the articles are transmitted, the Republican-controlled Senate will need to determine the parameters of the trial, which is expected to end in the president’s acquittal.
