Mitch McConnell scolded Manu Raju today after the impeachment trial had ended for trying to rehash the impeachment debate when McConnell was taking a victory lap (it’s cued up to 6:54):
McConnell Scolds CNN Reporter Over Impeachment Debate
Manu asked: “why is it ok for a president to ask another foreign country to investigate a political rival”. As if this question hasn’t been asked a billion times over the last several weeks!
McConnell responded: “Manu, I’ve been responding to you for years. You know what I’m here to talk about today is the political impact of this. We’ve completed it, we’ve listened to the arguments, we voted, it’s in the rearview mirror. And I think what’s appropriate now is to [garbled] it all began for political reasons, the political impact of it. I think it’s pretty clear what I’ve already said is where we are right now.”
And then McConnell moved on to the next question. And I can’t blame him. Manu is a hack and everyone on the Hill knows it. Trump won today and yet this idiotic CNN reporter is still trying to keep it going.
Moments ago, Chief Justice Roberts officially ordered the acquittal of both articles of impeachment against him.
CNBC reports the Senate on Wednesday voted to acquit President Donald Trump of both counts in his impeachment trial.
Forty-eight senators, including one Republican, found Trump guilty of abuse of power, while 52, all Republicans, voted to acquit him.
The president was also impeached on the charge of obstruction of Congress, in which all 53 Republicans found him not guilty and the remaining 47 senators voted to convict.
Chief Justice Roberts:
It is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be, and he is hereby, acquitted of the charges in said articles.
