The impeachment trial everybody knew would fail is finally over, and Donald Trump is still President of the United States of America.
From the Australian:
Donald Trump will address the nation early on Friday morning (AEDT) after he was acquitted of both counts of impeachment in the Senate, bringing an end to the most partisan and bitter impeachment trial in US history.
The Senate voted 52 To 48 to acquit Mr Trump on the first charge of abuse of power and 53 to 47 votes to acquit him on obstruction of Congress
The acquittal vote was almost completely along party lines but the president was denied his hope of unanimous verdict among Republicans when Senator Mitt Romney, a frequent Trump critic, voted to convict the president for abuse of power.
“The president is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust,” Senator Romney said on the Senate floor shortly before the final vote. “What the president did was wrong, grievously wrong.”
The vote to acquit Mr Trump on both counts of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress fell far short of the two-third majority, or 67 votes, that were needed to convict Mr Trump and remove him from office.
He may or may not be turn out to be the God Emperor, but he remains a god-tier troll:
Soon after he was acquitted, Mr Trump tweeted: “Trump 4EVA.”

Democrats knew that this was always going to fail because the impeachment trial would never get past the Republican controlled Senate. Naturally, this leads us to suspect an ulterior motive:
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said the acquittal would end the “attack on our institutions” which Democrats had launched because they could not accept the verdict of the people at the ballot box.
“We will reject this incoherent case that comes nowhere near justifying the first president removal in history,’ he told the Senate shortly before the vote.
“This is precisely the kind of recklessness the Senate was created to stop…we simply canot let factional fever break our institutions.”
They could not accept the verdict of the people at the ballot box. Donald Trump may or may not actually represent the American people just yet but he represents the fact that the American people still oppose the Jewish Bolshevik world order attempting to overthrow America and replace its people. Therefore, do not believe for a second that this is over:
Democrat Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer told the Senate the trial was a “sham” and that Americans would see through its decision to acquit Mr Trump.
“The verdict of this kangaroo court will be meaningless,” Senator Schumer said. “The Republican majority refused to get the evidence because they were afraid of what it might show.”
“You cannot be on the side of this president and be on the side of truth.” he said. “And if we are to survive as a nation, we must be on the side of truth.”
Just like the Chief Justice John Roberts refused to read a question by Rand Paul because it would name the
rat whistleblower Eric Ciaramella, (and the media have conspired to keep his name out of the papers.) The Stalinist hypocrisy is in plain sight. The Democrats will soon be back for another round.
It is also likely that Donald Trump sucked them into it. This impeachment sham has energised his base, and our American cousins are more than capable of handling themselves.
