U.S. President Donald Trump wants an impeachment trial to go forward in the U.S. Senate because he would receive due process there and he expects Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden would be among the witnesses, Reuters reports.

“President Trump wants to have a trial in the Senate because it’s clearly the only chamber where he can expect fairness and receive due process under the Constitution,” spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.

According to Gidley, they would expect to finally hear from witnesses "who actually witnessed, and possibly participated in corruption - like Adam Schiff, Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the so-called Whistleblower”.

Pelosi has earlier stated that Trump has "every opportunity to present his case" before Congress, and could "take the oath of office or he could do it in writing".

As we reported earlier, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said that U.S. and Russia leaders Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin do not want him to become President of the United States. 

According to Biden, he came to that conclusion after the Trump’s impeachment hearings took place in Congress.
