Impeachment Hearings: Trump Will 'Strongly Consider' Testifying
US President Donald Trump said he will consider the opportunity to testify at the trial for his impeachment.
Trump recalled that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had suggested on TV for the president to answer charges against him at the hearing.
“She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Democrats in Congress began impeaching Trump for allegedly putting pressure on Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to investigate Trump’s political opponent, former vice president Joe Biden. Trump himself says that he urged the Ukrainian authorities only to fight corruption.
