Welcome to Tuesday, January 14th, glass and plastic...
President Trump has suggested the Senate shouldn't hold an impeachment trial.
President Donald Trump argued in a tweet Sunday that if the Senate holds an impeachment trial, it gives "credence to a trial based on the no evidence, no crime, read the transcripts, 'no pressure.'"
Earlier in the day, Trump complained of the "stigma" of having an impeachment as part of his legacy.
"Why should I have the stigma of Impeachment attached to my name when I did NOTHING wrong?" Trump tweeted. "Read the Transcripts! A totally partisan Hoax, never happened before. House Republicans voted 195-0, with three Dems voting with the Republicans. Very unfair to tens of millions of voters!"
