Donald Trump Celebrates His Acquittal As Nancy Pelosi “Mourn” Loss

Former President Donald Trump is responded to Saturday’s Senate vote acquitting him of an impeachment charge of inciting an insurrection.

In a statement released shortly after the vote, the former president described the now concluded proceedings as part of a “witch-hunt”. He adds that “one political party” perpetrated this against him.

However, his statement ignored the fact that the vote against him was bipartisan. Ten Republicans joined Democrats in the House of Representatives to impeach and seven Republicans joined with Democrats in the Senate.

The 57-43 vote in the Senate, however, fell short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict Trump.

Trump thanked his legal team as well as the representatives and senators who he said: “stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.”

Absent from the statement was any direct mention of the events of Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol building.

Trump did thank his supporters: “We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.”

Nancy Pelosi’s statement;

After this senate acquittal, however, Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the house of representatives came out to give a statement. She said called those who voted to acquit Trump a “cowardly group of republicans who had no options”.
She went ahead to fault Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnel for not standing up to support democracy.
