During an interview with Fox and Friends Friday morning, President Trump said if articles of impeachment pass the House, he wants a full, open and transparent trial in the Senate. He also said he wants the "whistleblower," who filed a second hand complaint to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, to testify.
"Frankly, I want a trial," Trump said. "They’ve looked like fools over the last five days."
"There's nothing there," he continued. “There’s only one person I want more than where’s Hunter and that is Adam Schiff...I want to see Adam Schiff testify about the whistleblower...the whistleblower in my opinion is a political operative just like his lawyer...the one I want to testify the most is shifty Schiff."
The lawyer for the whistleblower called for a coup against President Trump last year.
Meanwhile Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, who would lead the Senate trial, has opened up an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma. He's also said he won't allow a trial to proceed without testimony from the whistleblower.
