President Trump just slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to hold off on transmitting the two articles of impeachment to the Senate and is now demanding an “immediate trial.”
“So after the Democrats gave me no Due Process in the House, no lawyers, no witnesses, no nothing, they now want to tell the Senate how to run their trial," Trump tweeted.
Trump's tweet comes after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer failed to reach an agreement today on the structure for the Senate trial, according to two senators and an aide, leaving the path for a bipartisan agreement in limbo as Congress breaks for the holidays.
The pair met privately for 20 minutes, but the initial talks stalled over a dispute over when the articles of impeachment should be transmitted to the Senate from the House.
The two leaders differ on how they see any initial agreement coming together and that gap hasn’t yet narrowed.
