Battle lines have been drawn following Tuesday's articles of impeachment alleging that President Donald Trump abused his power by coercing Ukraine to help him politically and obstructed Congress by stonewalling its investigation. Addressing a rally in Pennsylvania, Trump called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "embarrassed" by "her stupid impeachment." Meanwhile, she said the process is "about the Constitution" and avoiding "saying goodbye to a republic."
How are Republicans reacting? They're solidly behind the president, although Trump reportedly wants a prolonged Senate trial, which he's expected to win, while Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is seeking a quick decision.
