US Senate acquits President Trump of abuse of power dismisses impeachment

A Senate majority voted on Wednesday to acquit President Donald Trump of abuse of power and obstruction as charged in Impeachment Articles 1 and 2 brought by the House. The vote by roll call was 48 guilty, 52 not guilty for Article 1. A two-thirds majority is required for a conviction. Voting continued on Article 2, namely obstruction of the Congress inquiry and was 47 guilty, 53 not guilty. The accusation of abuse of power stemmed from Trump’s alleged effort to press Ukraine to investigate his election rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter for corruption by withholding military assistance from the Kiev government. Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney broke ranks with the Republican party and voted with the Democrats to convict the president of abuse of power.

      Our great Democrats will surely survive the next election for Representatives on November 3, 2020.
      November only looks scary close (for failure to be forgotten) but we can F America Deeper Again with another nasty impeachment.

      And, of course, we shall turn into law the obligation to rip off any speeches of any president.

    This is great news and means that Netanyahu-Neocon Kahanist forces should rush ahead and grab all the hilltops they can – just grab all you can now and then it’ll be ours forever! It’s free and it’s a gold rush! It’s like 48 or 67!

        well quoted and predating Shakespeare we find – ‘These two did oftentimes do the two-backed beast together, joyfully rubbing and frotting their bacon ‘gainst one another’

        It certainly reminds me of the unveiling ceremony in the oval office

      its Not about Palestinian Neo Nazis and it is not about Israeli Mafiosos. It is about the freedom to Worship the God of Adam. Once we get past that step a real dialogue can begin.

    Now the President should demand that the Department of Justice investigate Joe and Hunter Biden along with John Kerry and Chris Heinz for money laundering US Aid money that went to the Ukraine and portions were washed through the Baltic states banking system, then transferred to Cypress Banks and then into Rosemont and Hunter Biden’s BHR Equity Investment Fund Management Company. This needs to be done fore one reason. The whole Russian Collusion hoax and Ukraine hoax were meant to counter any attempt by the Trump Administration to even ask about the Ukraine, the Bidens, John Kerry and Chris Heinz.
