On Friday, All seven House Impeachment Managers sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper to argue that President Trump has not been acquitted claiming the Senate trial was not fair.
“I think he’s not been exonerated,” Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) said.
Dem Rep. Jason Crow (CO) followed up and said, “it’s hard to have an acquittal without a fair trial.”
Rep. Val Demings called President Donald Trump’s acquittal “fake news.”
“Well, and back to the acquittal part of this, I would consider that fake news, because we did not have a fair trial,” Florida Rep. Val Demings said.
“The president is not exonerated today,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said.
It’s well known that the House has no say whatsoever how the impeachment trial is conducted in the Senate.
The Senate went on to vote several times to block additional witnesses and in the end, voted to acquit President Trump on both articles on Wednesday.
Chief Justice Roberts then made it official:
“The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, president of the United States against two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the senators present not having found him guilty, it is therefore ordered and judged that he be and is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles.”
The fact still remains that The House rushed impeachment and brought a weak case with no crimes named in either article of impeachment. They just can’t accept defeat.
