President Trump acquitted of both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in Senate impeachment trial this afternoon
The farcical impeachment hoax brought forth by bitter Democrats with the hopes of stopping the re-election of President Donald Trump in November came to a sudden and abrupt end in the halls of the United States Senate this afternoon, shortly after 4:00 PM EST. So does this mean that constant and perpetual harassment of President Trump by the Democrats has come to an end? Not by a long shot. You won’t have to wait long for the next attack to come through, and in fact, I predict it will show up within the next 48 hours.
Again I will also warn that at some point, with the Democrats realizing, that if the Russian Dossier hoax, the Russian Collusion hoax, the Mueller Report, and now the impeachment hoax all failed to remove President Trump, that they will then turn to the one and only option they have left to try and stop his re-election. You know what it is, and yes, I believe they will at the very least attempt it. They are just that bitter and insane to do it.
The Senate on Wednesday voted to acquit President Donald Trump on both counts in his impeachment trial.
FROM CNBC: Forty-eight senators, including one Republican, voted to convict President Trump on a count of abuse of power, while 52, all Republicans, voted to acquit him. The president was also impeached on the charge of obstruction of Congress.
President Trump was accused of abusing his power by pressuring Ukraine to announce probes into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as a debunked conspiracy theory about interference in the 2016 election, while withholding nearly $400 million in congressionally appropriated military aid to the country.
Senate acquits Donald Trump of abusing presidential powers in impeachment trial
The US Senate has voted 52 to 48 to acquit Donald Trump of abusing presidential powers and obstruction of Congress.
Democrats say President Trump was attempting to cheat in the 2020 election by coercing a foreign ally to smear his possible political opponent with the stain of a criminal probe. They also argue he obstructed Congress by refusing to hand over any documents in the House’s probe, and by pressuring potential witnesses not to comply.
But with the outcome of the Senate trial all but certain since its first days, the suspense turned instead to an up-or-down vote late in the trial over whether or not to admit additional evidence, which only needed 51 votes to pass. For several days, Washington hung on the words of a handful of moderate senators, both Democrats and Republicans, who have broken with their parties on previous votes.

Two Republicans voted with Democrats to admit additional evidence, Romney and Maine Sen. Susan Collins, and the measure was defeated. Unlike Romney, however, Collins ultimately voted to acquit Trump of the charges against him. Moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin’s last minute announcement that he would vote to convict on both counts came as a surprise on Capitol Hill.
Both sides, the White House and Democrats, had wanted to stake claim to a “bipartisan vote,” on their side. The president had sincerely hoped to convince at least one Democrat to vote to acquit him on at least one charge, so that the White House could have declared, technically accurately, that Trump had been acquitted by a bipartisan vote.
Ultimately, only Democrats will be able to claim a “bipartisan vote,” having convinced Romney to cross party lines and vote to convict Trump on the first article. READ MORE
