TIL Desk/World/Washington/ United States President Donald Trump predicted that his impeachment trial in the US Senate will be over quickly and again dismissed abuse of power charges against him as “a hoax.”
“I think it should go very quickly,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office as the upper chamber’s members were sworn in to serve as the jury in Trump’s historic trial over the Ukraine scandal.
“It’s totally partisan,” Trump said. “It’s a hoax. It’s a hoax and everybody knows it’s a complete hoax.” Asked about new Ukraine-related accusations leveled by a former associate of his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Trump said they had nothing to with him.
