Moments ago, the Senate voted to acquit President Trump on the articles of impeachment. He is innocent and is officially still eligible to run for office again in the future.
Democrats lose AGAIN!
Here’s the breaking story:
It was a largely party line vote, with Democrats voting in unison, but they were joined by a series of anti-Trump senators who do not face elections for several years.
The total votes to convict were 57, versus 43 votes to acquit. Democrats were well short of the two thirds majority needed to convict.
This comes after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell allegedly used the threat of a Senate conviction, which would require a two thirds majority, to blackmail President Trump during his final days in office.
According to Tucker Carlson, McConnell threatened to instruct Republicans to convict him if he issued presidential pardons to Julian Assange and other anti-establishment whistleblowers.
