Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer outlined his requests for the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, asking that additional documents and witnesses be included in the proceedings. So far, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated he plans to hold a quick trial and will work in line with the White House. “Sen. McConnell has come up with no good reason why the trial shouldn’t have these witnesses or documents,” Schumer said in a news conference on Dec. 23. Schumer spoke after newly released email shows U.S. aid to Ukraine was ordered to be withheld shortly after Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president.
