To speed up the process of impeachment against the US President Trump, the Senate Republicans are pushing to finish the trail and trying to finish it as soon as possible. With this Trump becomes the fourth President to face impeachment.


"It's clear Sen. McConnell is hell-bent on making it much more difficult to get witnesses and documents and intent on rushing the trial through," Senate Minority Leader Schumer said.

"On something as important as impeachment, Senator McConnell's resolution is nothing short of a national disgrace," he added.

Talking about the impeachment process, White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland said, "We look forward to presenting a vigorous defense of the President on the facts and the process as quickly as possible, and seeking an acquittal as swiftly as possible," he said.
