Ill do whatever I want in impeachment trial, Trump says
President Trump will have impeachment just the way he wants it. In an Oval Office meeting with the president of Paraguay on Friday, Trump didn't have much to say about the South American country. Instead, he made it clear to reporters what he'd like out of his impeachment trial in the Senate, saying "I'll do whatever I want" when asked for his impeachment preferences. After reporting suggested Trump was pushing for a long, "TV spectacle" of an impeachment trial and Senate Republicans just wanted to get it over with, Trump was asked Friday flat-out what he'd prefer. Trump replied by saying he'd heard Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) suggest a quick trial without any witnesses, "and I like that." In short, "I'll do whatever I want," Trump said. Trump then repeated his claim that "we did nothing wrong, so I'll do long or short." And then he revealed he did have a preference, saying "I wouldn't mind a long process, because I'd like to see the whistleblower," whose identity is protected by law.
