Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., stated on Friday that lawmakers will wait patiently to execute Trump's impeachment hearings for many weeks, delaying the beginning of the trial before the week of Feb. 8.
"Well, to start with, I believe that the trial is dumb. "We have a flaming fire in this country, and it is like carrying a lot of gas and pouring it in addition to the flame.
"Secondly, I return at one time, by way of instance, Richard Nixon, who'd obviously perpetrated offenses and wrongdoing, and in hindsight I believe we'd agree that President Ford's pardon was significant for the nation to have the ability to move forward. And history Richard Nixon rather accountable for that which he did as a outcome."
"I feel that the president bears responsibility for some of the things occurred. It was certainly a predictable effect of everything that has been happening," Rubio said. "All I am arguing is we've got a few really significant things to use. ... We are gonna leap right into what we've been going through for the past five decades, and stirring it up again using a trial, and it is going to be awful for the nation."
"I feel that is an arrogant announcement for anybody to make. Voters get to pick that. Who are we to inform voters that they could vote for in the long run?" He explained.
"The GOP is the party that nominated Donald Trump and also the main reason it did -- and finally got him elected, and he obtained 75 million votes -- is since you have thousands of Americans who believe this market is not functioning for people like themthat sense socially displaced, actually like strangers in their own nation," Rubio said.
"That is exactly what I expect we will be a celebration of," he added. "I really hope we can get it done in a manner that keeps the men and women who think we are fighting them and brings some of the folks who possibly did not vote for Republicans or did not vote for the president since they might not enjoy, you know, how it was stated or how it was completed.
"I feel that is really possible, and I believe that is the future of the Republican Party, since, honestly, on that is determined by upon the future of the nation."
