The Senate spoke up and President Donald Trump once again avoided impeachment. The 45th President of the United States issued a statement thanking his legal team and supporters.
Specifically, he promised that “our movement to make America great again has only just begun. Trump would have been barred from a future federal office had he been convicted.

Senator McConnell launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump, holding him directly responsible for the insurgency, cop killings and sedition. His “no” vote on narrow procedural grounds does not remove the political indictment the Republican leader has issued against Mr. Trump.

Mitch McConnell makes better arguments to condemn Donald Trump than even House Managers. Its withdrawal is excoriating and it admits the constitutional q. on competence is near. Why set the precedent to acquit a president who did what McConnell claims?

Remember Mitch McConnell is the person who decided that the trial would not continue while Trump was in office. He can’t seem to hide from the alleged legal quagmire he has caused. He’s a coward and a hypocrite. And incorrect on the law.
