Hm, it looks like Moscow Mitch is at odds with Trump now? I do not know how else to explain this decision.
Trump wanted a long trial with witnesses. And we all know why he wanted it-to get even. Now, he will not have that chance. And he could have derailed the Dems and prevented them from having a peaceful campaign.

This is crucial:
“A long Senate trial could delay the chamber’s approval of a U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement known as USMCA, which would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, and detract from Republican senators’ campaign message of a strong U.S. economy as some of them seek re-election next year”.

So it looks like these Republican senators are putting their own interests ahead of Trump’s.
