It’s finally over! The five-month-long impeachment inquisition against President Trump is over (unless the Dems decide to try again). The Senate voted to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment, ruling him innocent of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.

Former Republican presidential nominee (and current RINO) Mitt Romney was the only Republican to vote against President Trump on the abuse of power charge, but even HE voted with the Republicans to acquit President Trump on the charge of obstructing Congress

Republicans are not happy with Romney. Even his own niece, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, is expressing her displeasure at his decision. McDaniel tweeted, “This is not the first time I have disagreed with Mitt, and I imagine it will not be the last.

The bottom line is President Trump did nothing wrong, and the Republican Party is more united than ever behind him.

I, along with the @GOP stand with President Trump.”

It is going to be an awkward Christmas dinner next year in the Romney household.

Senator Mitt Romney once was the Republican nominee for president, but now he has bucked that same party that nominated him and voted to remove a sitting Republican President. Romney’s vote to remove the president is historic, as it is the first time in American history that a senator has voted to remove a president from his own party from office.

The vote to acquit President Trump culminates a five-month-long soap opera that was a colossal waste of time. Americans already knew how the trial was going to end. The impeachment inquisition began back in September of 2019.

The quest for impeachment centered around a call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

A whistleblower inside the White House is said to have notified the intelligence community’s Inspector General, claiming to have knowledge of a phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president. During this phone call, Trump is said to have put pressure on Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden’s role in protecting his son, Hunter Biden, from prosecution in Ukraine.

Hunter Biden served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company that was under investigation by the Ukrainian Attorney General.

It has been alleged that when Biden was vice president, he used his leverage as the V.P. to have the Ukrainian prosecutor fired.

In September, The Wall Street Journal reported that “President Trump in a July phone call repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s son, according to people familiar with the matter, urging Volodymyr Zelensky about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani on a probe that could hamper Mr. Trump’s potential 2020 opponent.

‘He told him that he would work with [Mr. Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know if his lawyer’s assertions that Mr. Biden acted improperly as vice president were true, one of the people said Mr. Giuliani has suggested Mr. Biden’s pressure on Ukraine to fight corruption had to do with an investigation of a gas company for which his son was a director.”

The media and the Congressional Democrats jumped all over The Wall Street Journal report and didn’t hesitate to call for the president’s impeachment.

 

The country has much more pressing concerns than the Schiff show, but Democrats were determined.

Impeachment would never have gone forward if it were not for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. However, it was Adam Schiff who ran the day-to-day operations. Schiff spearheaded the impeachment hearings in the House Intelligence Committee, and was then picked to be the lead House manager in the Senate Trial.

Schiff and his staff allegedly worked with the whistleblower who got this whole impeachment drama started. He pushed through a partisan impeachment that didn’t allow for President Trump to have counsel present to counter the Democrat accusations. He got his way, and the House voted to impeach President Trump on a vote straight down party lines. He then had the audacity to command the Senate to do his dirty work and call witnesses, such as former National Security Advisor John Bolton.

Thankfully, the Senate Republicans held firm and voted not to call witnesses to the Senate trial. Only Mitt Romney and Susan Collins voted to call witnesses on the Republican side.

Impeachment is over, for now.

But the Democrats aren’t finished yet. They want to call more witnesses over in the House, including John Bolton.

The Hill reported, “House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerold Nadler  (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that it is “likely” that the House will issue a subpoena to President Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton.

Nadler said that a final decision had not been made yet, but that the odds were that House Democrats would issue a subpoena after the Senate voted last week not to call any witnesses in Trump’s impeachment trial.

“I think it’s likely, yes,” Nadler told reporters. “We’ll want to call Bolton.”

The impeachment of Donald Trump is, for the time being, over—and it had the exact result that Democrats feared and Republicans predicted.

President Trump was acquitted of both charges against him. This impeachment has helped the president, not hurt him. His approval ratings are at all-time highs.

The Democrats’ plan to impeach President Trump has failed miserably.

And we couldn’t be happier.
