image for Trump wants to set up ‘MAGA party’ to challenge Republicans who voted to impeach him, says report

While three presidents have been impeached by the House – Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump – none have been convicted by the Senate.

The Senate is due to start hearing the case on the week beginning February 8.

He said that he has not spoken to Ivanka Trump or anyone about Marco Rubio possibly getting a primary challenge from her. »
