Here's how newspaper front pages announced Trump's impeachment

Longshot presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is facing some heat in her heavily Democratic home state of Hawaii for voting "present" on two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted Thursday that Senate Republicans must provide details on witnesses and testimony before she would send over the charges for Trump's trial.

"We remain at an impasse", he said.

McConnell has said he is working in tandem with the White House on trial preparations, drawing accusations from Democrats that he is ignoring his duty to consider the evidence in an impartial manner.

It means Mr Trump must now face a trial in the Senate in the New Year which could remove him from office. Schumer, who also met privately with Pelosi, has to bet that GOP senators won't hold the line and Republicans will peel away as public pressure mounts for a fuller trial.

They may not have suspected it, but the iron clad laws of arithmetic dictate the Republicans, and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell will control the next step.

For the record, Sen.

"He is demanding his day in court", Graham said in an interview on Fox News Channel Thursday evening. The leader of the upper chamber, Senator Mitch McConnell, has said there is no chance of the President being convicted. "That doesn't sound right to us".

"If Trump is acquitted and he does a victory lap, it really could be a minus for him", said University of MI political scientist Nicholas Valentino.

"When you have a trial you get to call witnesses", he told Reuters.

Mr Van Drew broke with his party and voted against impeaching Mr Trump - a move that bolstered the Republican Party's attempts to depict Democrats as divided on the matter.

Such messaging has been effective in driving outrage among the president's core supporters, which Trump's campaign hopes will help propel him to reelection next year.

But the vote to impeach him sent shockwaves through the United States, despite the likelihood of him actually being convicted and removed from office thought to be very small. On Thursday at the Capitol, she said, "We'd like to see a fair process, but we'll see what they have and will be ready for whatever it is".

Another 17 percent said Trump should be formally reprimanded with a congressional censure, 29 percent said they want the impeachment charges dismissed, and the rest said they did not have an opinion. At the rally, Mr Trump accused the Democrats of showing "deep hatred and disdain" for voters.

"Without receiving a single Republican vote, and without providing any proof of wrongdoing, Democrats pushed illegitimate articles of impeachment against the president through the House of Representatives", White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

"He added, "' The Senate shall set the time and place of the trial.' If the Do-Nothing Democrats decide, in their great wisdom, not to show up, they would lose by Default!"

"We can not name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side", Pelosi said. "Then we'll know the number of managers we may have to go forward and who we would choose".

When asked about the specific impeachment charges, 53 per cent agreed that Mr Trump abused his office and 51 per cent agreed that he obstructed Congress.

MccConnell announced he will speak on the Senate floor at 9:30am ET.

"McConnell claimed the impeachment was motivated by partisan rage", said Schumer.
