President Donald Trump does not mind an impeachment trial as long as it provides him due process rights that the Democrat-led House has denied in their impeachment push.

In a statement on Thursday, Nov. 21, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said President Trump is ready for a trial in the Senate where he can receive due process and fairness and the witnesses there may include Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, the so-called whistleblower who sparks an impeachment inquiry in the House, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son.

“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,” Reuters citing Gidley reported.

“We 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, to name a few,” Gidley said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a formal impeachment inquiry into the president on Sept. 24, seizing on the whistleblower complaint based on a July 25 phone call between President Trump and the Ukrainian president.

However, the Democrats have refused to allow the president’s legal team to participate in the impeachment hearings and cross-examine the witnesses Democrats are calling.

The president and his Republican allies have been complaining that Democrats have denied his basic due process rights, breaking with U.S. history of previous impeachment proceedings.
