In one of the most predictable outcomes in American history, the Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment Wednesday, putting a long-awaited end to the Democratic Party’s latest attempt to nullify the 2016 election.
The vote, 52-48 against removal, came down strictly along party lines, save for the traitorous conviction vote from Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, who still can’t deal with the fact that Trump accomplished what he couldn’t. Everyone else just voted with their respective parties; somehow, the media sees this as only Republicans being partisan.
In remarks to the media after the vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he was still baffled as to what Democrats were thinking in bringing this flimsy case against the president.
“I’m pretty sure she didn’t want to do this,” McConnell said, referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “This was a political loser for them. At least in the short-term, this has been a colossal political mistake.”
Indeed, it’s hard to see it any other way. With this impeachment, Democrats have accomplished the following:
- Proven to the country that they are losers who can’t get anything done.
- Shown their Midwest voters that they despise them for abandoning the party in 2016.
- Thrust Donald Trump’s approval ratings to an all-time high.
- Telegraphed that they don’t believe they can defeat Trump in November.
- Demonstrated that whether it’s Russia, emoluments, a porn star, or Ukraine, they’ll jump at any half-baked story if it means getting rid of the duly-elected President of the United States.
To say it was a “colossal political mistake”? Those are strong words. But when you really consider what Democrats did here, they may not be strong enough to accurately tell the tale of impeachment. If it weren’t for their dutiful cheerleaders in the mainstream media, Democrats would really be hung out to dry after this catastrophe.
Will they learn their lesson? C’mon.
“As I said after the Clinton impeachment trial, the Senate has spoken and the cloud over the presidency has been removed. I meant it then and mean it now,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham in a statement. “Unfortunately, I doubt my Democratic colleagues, who are being driven by unlimited hatred of President Trump, have the ability to move on.”
The Ukraine fiasco is over, but surely it’s only a matter of time before Pelosi and her goons find some new made-up scandal with which to smear and “investigate” President Trump.
It will only make Election Day that much sweeter.
