Dems Nightmare: Trump Acquitted in Second Impeachment Trial (www.theepochtimes.com)

Former President Donald Trump was acquitted of an insurrection incitement charge by the Senate on Saturday.

Fifty-seven senators voted to convict Trump. A conviction requires a 67 vote supermajority.

All 43 senators who voted to acquit Trump are Republicans. All Democrats voted to convict him. Seven Republicans joined the Democrats.

The Impeachment Managers have accomplished nothing but to extend the pain of the American people. They achieved one thing—Donald J. Trump’s acquittal,” added Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), another acquittal vote.

At least after Trump people see just how fake everything is.

Hell, the politics is even more fake than the markets are.

The Democrats control the Senate, The House and The White House and around 20% (or less) of the US population voted for them

If the Democrat case was so great why did they try to cheat and lie with false evidence ?
