"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", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement on Thursday.

In Thursday's hearing, the committee heard testimony from former White House national security adviser Fiona Hill and David Holmes, the political counselor at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine.

"I want to see Adam Schiff testify about the whistleblower, who is a fake whistleblower", Trump added, referring to the Intelligence Committee's chairman.

Collins, whose seat is expected to be one of the most expensive and competitive next year, has refused to comment on the impeachment hearings, citing her view that she will serve as a juror in the Senate trial, should the House vote that the president should be impeached.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Thursday called Weddle a "great guy" and called the issue "much ado about nothing". Conversely, Weddle's Rams are 6-4 and would not be in the playoffs if the postseason started today.

The Post also reported that people familiar with Trump's sentiments said that the President has privately expressed how "miserable" he finds the impeachment inquiry and has pushed to dismiss the proceedings right away.

However, despite these wishes, the White House doubts they will be allowed to participate in the Judiciary Committee process because House rules say they can be blocked unless they drop their objections based on executive privilege to allow investigators access to administration witnesses and documents. The White House official says they discussed three options: no trial, a short one and a long one. A Senate trial on whether to remove him from office would likely follow.

The aides spoke on condition of anonymity to describe a private meeting.
