House Dems Still Losing It Over Failed Impeachment Hoax: "He's Not Been Exonerated" [Video]
House Managers say that Trump wasn't acquitted even though a vote was made and a ruling was passed in Trump's favor. Of course, Dems are using Senator Mitt Romey as a talking point because he is the first Senator in history to vote against a president from his own party. Nevermind the fact that Romney has a personal quarrel with the President and has been at odds with GOP members for some time.
Romney used the President to get his seat in the Senate and I believe he thinks voting against Trump now will help secure him a path to the White House in the future. Time will tell if I'm right about that.
Trump was acquitted on both articles of impeachment Wednesday after over four months of debate. The House managers sat down in an exclusive interview with “Anderson Cooper 360” Friday to discuss the trial and what comes next, and all appeared to be in agreement that despite the Senate’s vote, the president was still not exonerated.
“I think he’s not been exonerated,” California Rep. Zoe Lofgren began. Colorado Rep. Jason Crow quickly chimed in, adding that “it’s hard to have an acquittal without a fair trial.”
“And this was the first impeachment trial in American history where we didn’t have witnesses and documents,” Crow said. “And I think the American people realize that, because, as we sit here right now, there are thousands of Americans walking into courthouses across the country, and they’re taking their oath, and they’re going to be sitting as jurors in trials.”
“And they’re going to hear from witnesses and documents. And they’re asking themselves why Washington and Donald Trump should be any different. And, of course, the answer is, it shouldn’t. And they understand that.”
Pay close attention to how they refer to Romney, one single vote, as a plural. It's all about optics with Democrats-'how can we make this seem different than it is?'. They strive to stretch the truth to the American people to make their case. Romney was one single vote but to listen to them now, several Senators from the Republican party voted against Trump.
New York Rep. Jerry Nadler also lamented about the Senate’s vote, backing up the other House managers who told Cooper that Trump was not yet innocent. The House managers appeared to agree that the Senate’s decision to refuse additional witnesses meant the trial was unfair.
