Trump trial could be over in two weeks

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Bill Clinton’s 1999 impeachment trial lasted five weeks; Andrew Johnson’s went on for three months in 1868. If the White House and Republicans have their way, United States (US) President Donald Trump’s trial will be over in two weeks, just in time for him to celebrate his expected acquittal in the February 4 State of the Union Address. But that depends on Republicans being able to block Democrat demands to subpoena documents and witnesses that could strengthen the case against the President. More details in Monday’s Borneo Bulletin.
