Nancy Pelosi, Somehow, Thinks Trump WASN’T Acquitted

( – Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ failed attempt to impeach and remove the president will go down in history as one of the most ill-judged political decisions ever made. And, Nancy Pelosi may also go down as one of the most delusional politicians in history, too.

In an interview with CNN, the Speaker of the House suggested that President Donald Trump wasn’t acquitted following the impeachment trial.


Speaking to Christiane Armanpour, Pelosi made the incredible claim that Trump’s acquittal simply didn’t happen.

Armanpour told Pelosi, “What about, though, the fact that the president seems liberated, and this is about democratic politics so I’m not asking you to criticize here, but he was acquitted, his poll ratings are high.”

Pelosi quickly interrupted, stating, “He was not…there was no…”

She continued, “You can’t have an acquittal unless you have a trial, and you can’t have a trial unless you have witnesses and documents. So he can say he’s acquitted, and the headlines can say he’s ‘acquitted,’ but he’s impeached forever, branded with that, and not vindicated.”

Pelosi’s comments cement her vocal hatred of the president. Since his election, Pelosi and others have searched for ways to punish the president, and impeachment is the worst they can do without removing him from office. Her anger got the better of her during the State of the Union address delivered by the president when she was seen tearing up an official copy of the speech.

“And even the senators were saying, ‘yes, it wasn’t right,’ but they didn’t have the courage to act upon that,” she said.

President Trump might be “impeached forever,” but the impeachment was partisan, not bipartisan. A decision by Democratic lawmakers to impeach the president represents political bias and a clear desire to undo the results of the 2016 election. If the president has broken the law or acted inappropriately, the impeachment would have received bipartisan support.

It didn’t.

When the impeachment vote came to the Senate, congressmen voted to acquit the president. Every Republican, with the exception of bitter Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, voted to acquit the president.

The fact that Pelosi believes this didn’t happen casts doubt on her ability to do her job as House Speaker.
