Donald Trump condenms public impeachment inquiry, says he wants a trial


Embattled President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has condemned the ongoing public impeachment inquiry against him, while also defending his use of personal lawyer Giuliani for Ukraine policy.
Trump said on Friday that he wants a trial in the US Senate, suggesting he would be vindicated.
“Frankly, I want a trial,” Trump told Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends programme.
The US president said, however, he did not think the House of Representatives would impeach him.
“I think it’s very hard for them to impeach you if they have absolutely nothing,” Trump said.
The development comes two days after two key witnesses identified as Fiona Hill, the former senior director for Russia and Europe at the White House National Security Council, and David Holmes, the top political counsellor at the US embassy in Kyiv, testified against Trump on Thursday in the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
The pair testified against Trump in the last of this week’s scheduled hearings in the ongoing impeachment inquiry against the US president for abusing the power of the presidency.
They both told the United States House of Representatives that a number of officials openly pushed Ukraine for partisan investigations with the knowledge and backing of Trump.
