WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday urged House Democrats to move fast if they are going to impeach him, so that the Republican-led Senate can take up the issue.

“If you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate, and so that our Country can get back to business,” Trump tweeted.
