All seven House impeachment managers sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Friday evening to complain about Trump’s acquittal.
The impeachment managers argued Trump has not been acquitted because the Senate trial was not fair after their case went up in flames this week.
The House rushed impeachment and brought a weak case with no crimes named in either article of impeachment.
The Senate didn’t even come close to convicting Trump so now the same House Dems who denied Trump due process and blocked GOP witnesses are claiming the Senate trial wasn’t fair.
“I think he’s not been exonerated,” Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) said.
Dem Rep. Jason Crow (CO) followed up and said, “it’s hard to have an acquittal without a fair trial.”
Rep. Val Demings called Trump’s acquittal “fake news.”
“Well, and back to the acquittal part of this, I would consider that fake news, because we did not have a fair trial,” Florida Rep. Val Demings said.
“The president is not exonerated today,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said.
The House has no say whatsoever how the impeachment trial is conducted in the Senate.
The Senate voted several times to block additional witnesses and ultimately voted to acquit Trump on both articles on Wednesday.
Chief Justice Roberts then made it official and declared: “The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, president of the United States against two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the senators present not having found him guilty, it is therefore ordered and judged that he be and is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles.”
President Trump is acquitted forever no matter what the House Democrats say. Case closed.
