Impeachment teams speak after Senate votes to acquit former President Trump of charge he incited Capitol riot.
RELATED:

The Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump a second time Saturday after a historic impeachment trial where House managers painted him as a lingering threat after his supporters rioted at the Capitol, an argument that failed to convince enough Senate Republicans to convict.

A 57-43 majority of the Senate voted to convict Trump, but fell short of the two-thirds majority required for conviction. Seven Republicans joined the 50 lawmakers who caucus with Democrats. Trump was also acquitted a year ago in his first trial over his dealings with Ukraine, when a majority opposed conviction and only one Republican joined Democrats voting to convict.

The trial was historic because Trump was the first president impeached twice and the first to be tried after leaving office. Trump was only the third president tried in the Senate – all were acquitted. But the Senate vote against Trump was the most bipartisan vote for conviction of a president in history – the others faced votes entirely from the opposition party.

      Just ask the 200+ QAnon believers that are in jail right now thinking that they were going to get a pardon from him

  1. in other words, they know they have nothing, and instead of going after it, they are afraid all their ditry laundry will come out in the process…

  2. Democrats in words: “they were an endangerment and threatened our democracy”
    Democrats in action: Go on complete power grab rampage. Sign record number of executive orders, stiffle any political opposition, do everything in their power to ensure only Democrats could be elected from now on.

    1. @Lynn Lanier Soto-Shambach And you’ll party will have your head before they have mine.

      I’m a good ol tax payer. Socialists in power need that.

      Remember what happened to the Bolsheviks.

  8. President Trump just broke another record!!! 1ST President to beat two sham impeachments that proved the ones filing the unconstitutional impeachments are the guilty ones!

  9. When will Pelosi and Harris be brought to trial for the assistance/encouragement they gave to destroying other cities during the pre election riots?

  10. Funny how Raskin still feels the need to justify the legitimacy of Biden being president. A sign of uncertainty for sure.
