or do you agree with Trump?White House officials and Republican senators agreed the Senate should not immediately dismiss any articles of impeachment against the president.” Participants in the meeting, held a few weeks before the formal floor votes in the House, reportedly agreed that it’d be in the president’s interest to have “a full trial,” of “some length,” featuring a “factual affirmative defense on the merits.”
But before you decide, keep in mind:President Trump on Sunday injected fresh instability into final preparations for the Senate’s impeachment trial, suggesting that senators should dismiss the House’s charges of high crimes and misdemeanors against him outright rather than dignifying them with a full tribunal.
linkAs is always the case, I’d caution against assuming that Trump’s tweet represents the White House’s, or even his own, new position. He’s likely to say or tweet the opposite at any moment, and it’s possible the presidential missive was part of a fleeting thought, triggered by something random the Republican saw on television.
