Donald Trump Delivers Remarks Following Impeachment Acquittal

On Thursday (Feb 6, 2020) in White House East Room, surrounded by several hundred of his most loyal supporters, President Trump delivered remarks following impeachment acquittal.

At one point, Donald Trump said:

This is really not a press conference. It’s not a speech. It’s not anything. It’s a celebration.

So, let’s watch the celebration.

The White House Feb 6, 2020

East Room — The President unleashed his outrage on those who tried to remove him from office and praised his supporters. There’s no need to add my comments. Watch the video.

Trump Acquited On Both Impeachment Articles

Senators voted mainly along party lines to acquit President Donald Trump on charges that he abused power and obstructed Congress.

Article I:
Abuse of power

48 YES (R Mitt Romney, Utah — voted with Democrats)
52 NO

Article II:
Obstruction of Congress

47 YES
53 NO

Mitt Romney makes (an unfortunate) history.

Sen. Romney (the 2012 GOP presidential nominee), became the first senator in U.S. history to vote to convict the president of his own party. In two previous impeachment trials of (D) Andrew Johnson and (D) Bill Clinton, no Democratic senators voted to convict.

Here is Sen. Romney’s reasoning why he decided to vote to convict President Trump on Abuse of Power.

C-SPAN Feb 5, 2020

Were I to ignore the evidence that has been presented [ what evidence? ] and disregard what I believe my oath — and the Constitution — demands of me for the sake of a partisan end, it would, I fear, expose my character to history’s rebuke [ your fear will come true ] and the censure of my own conscience

Sen. Mitt Romney

[ With my comments ]

Reaction to acquittal.

Pres. Trump knows how to annoy Democrats. Right after acquittal, he tweeted meme suggesting his intentions to stay in the White House for a very looong time.

He also dropped another twit announcing the official public statement to come the next day.

I will be making a public statement tomorrow at 12:00 pm from the White House to discuss our Country’s VICTORY on the Impeachment Hoax!

Donald J. Trump

Since President Trump’s election, some members of the Democrat Party have been determined to impeach him. First, it was so-called ‘Russian collusion,’ and when the Mueller Report didn’t satisfy their desires, Democrats cooked up two articles of impeachment to accomplish their goal and even attempt to prevent future ballot access. This has been a flagrant abuse of power by the U.S. House, and it took the Senate to end this charade. America deserves better in the future, and I hope we won’t go down such a partisan-driven path again.

Senator Rand Paul

The Senate has finally ended an ordeal that never should have started. Democrats in the House brushed aside principles of fairness and impartiality in conducting this impeachment process, yet, in my belief, they failed to find impeachable offenses. The Senate agreed.

Rep. Morgan Griffith

This acquittal is justified. Democrats rushed a partisan impeachment through the House to meet a political timeline, and failed to prove their weak case. It’s over.Time to move on and get back to work on the issues President Trump addressed in his State of the Union.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw

What next?

Democrats are not going to take a vacation. Expect more investigations, more “leaks” from former White House staffers. It won’t surprise me if new allegations and even new impeachment attempt will come to life.

Democrats are not going to stop unless Republicans will win huge in November. Regaining the House, extending the majority in Senate, and keeping the White House is a must.

How senators voted.

President Trump — Pre-Super Bowl Interview

President Trump discusses the Senate impeachment trial, Trump administration’s accomplishments, State of the Union plans, and Democratic presidential contenders.

Fox News has aired a pre-Super Bowl interview with President Trump.
A couple of highlights.

Sean Hannity asked the president if he contemplated a delay of the State of the Union Address till after Senate vote on impeachment. President Trump replied with a definite NO.

I’m going to have it. It’s going to be done. We’re going to talk about the achievements that we’ve made. Nobody’s made achievements like we’ve made.

When asked about his opinion of Sen. Bernie Sanders, President replied:

I think he’s a communist. I mean, you know, look, I think of communism when I think of Bernie.

It’s a short interview (only 8 min), but it’s certainly worthy of watching.

Donald Trump Speaks

To Sean Hannity of Sean Hannity Show.

Published on Feb 02, 2020

From the president’s pre-Super Bowl interview with Sean Hannity:
Pres. Trump expresses his opinion on Speaker of the United States House of Representatives — Nancy Pelosi.

I think she’s a very confused, very nervous woman. I don’t think she wanted to do this. I think she really knew what was going to happen and that’s her worst nightmare has happened. I don’t think she’s going to be there too long either. I think that the radical left, and she’s sort of radical left too by the way, but I think the radical left is going to take over.

Senator Romney Is Formally Disinvited from CPAC 2020

As a result of breaking ranks with Senate Republicans and calling for additional testimony from witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, Matt Schlapp (chairman of the American Conservative Union) twitted that Utah Senator Mitt Romney has been “formally NOT invited” to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to be held in February this year in Fort Washington, Maryland.

So, what’s going on with former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney?
Unless he’s planning to run for president on Democratic ticket, his latest actions make no sense what so ever. It’s not unusual for Romney to oppose the president, but he’s doing it more and more often, and some of his GOP colleagues appear to be losing their patience.

Republican from Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler criticized Sen. Mitt Romney over his push for witnesses at the Senate impeachment trial.

After two weeks, it’s clear that Democrats have no case for impeachment. Sadly, my colleague Senator Romney wants to appease the left by calling witnesses who will slander Donald Trump during their 15 minutes of fame. The circus is over. It’s time to move on!

Unfortunately, Sen. Romney, instead of moving on, decided to stick to it and become a member of the democrat-led circus troupe. Good luck with that, senator.

Some speculations that rather ulterior motives drive Romney’s strong opposition to Trump are resurfacing again. Jealousy, the need for retribution, feelings of superiority to the man in Oval Office (the office Romney ran for twice and failed), and viewing him as not worthy of the job, appear to influence Romney’s political decisions rather heavily.

It’s clear that Romney wants to get even with Trump, but he picked the worst possible way and the least appropriate time to do it. In a blind attempt to hurt the president, he’s losing his conservative base, and I’m sure as hell, he’s not attracting any democrats. In effect, he’s committing political suicide while simultaneously, luckily for the rest of us, instead of damaging the president, he’s making him stronger and more popular.

It’s great to see a positive outcome from a rather unfortunate situation. Excellent job, senator, keep it up.

The last thought.

It looks like Romney just jumped off the top of Trump Tower yelling on his way down — “I’ve got you, Trump! I’ve got you good!”
I won’t even try to figure out the reasoning behind his decision; it’s way beyond me. But, I think I can come up with a simple answer to a viral question circulating on and around the capitol right now: What’s next for Mitt Romney?

Well…, a loud “SPLASH!!!” on contact with the sidewalk.

President Trump Speaks To Maria Bartiromo Of Fox Business

While attending the Davos Conference, President Trump managed to cut twenty minutes out of his busy schedule to sat down for an interview with Fox Business Maria Bartiromo.

President Trump’s interview consisted of a wide range of topics from trade, economics, and impeachment disaster, through Virginia’s battle with the Second Amendment rights, to some current less significant events.

These people are crazy; they have gone totally nuts.
Mcconnell, they say things about him with Russia…
Jill Stein, I don’t know Jill Stein, green party, they say Jill Stein Is an agent of Russia.
Then they said Tulsi Gabbard, I don’t know her, but I know one thing she isn’t an agent of Russia, but they said she was an agent of Russia.
That’s what they said about me.
These people are crazy, they have gone nuts, and they’ve gone far left, and Nancy is a woman who I call her nervous Nancy for a reason, she doesn’t know what the hell is happening…

Rep. Gohmert And Greg Jarrett On Hannity With Tammy Bruce

Congressman Louie Gohmert and author of “Witch Hunt” and ” The Russia Hoax ” — Gregg Jarrett share their opinion on Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate and President Trump exposing the extent of Deep State Corruption.

Tammy Bruce is filling in for Sean Hannity.

With guests: Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert and Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett.

Published on Tuesday, December 26, 2019

The last thought.

So, Pelosi and Democrats have rushed through “impeachment proceedings” like there was no tomorrow, and then they decided to put the “indictment” in a drawer and take a vacation.

In other words, grand jury (the House) agreed that there’s enough evidence to indict (send articles of impeachment to the Senat), but the prosecutor (the Speaker) decided to sit on it and don’t indict.

It seems that technically speaking, pres. Trump hasn’t been impeached yet.

Sen. Ted Cruz On Impeachment: Legitimate Process Or Partisan Weapon?

Sen. Ted Cruz at The Heritage Foundation explains how the impeachment process has been weaponized against President Trump.

Streamed live on Dec 17, 2019
by The Heritage Foundation

It is paramount that a presidential impeachment is fair, legitimate, and minimize partisanship. Sen. Ted Cruz uses common sense and some humor to illustrate how Democrats in the House of Representatives turned the entire impeachment process on its head.

Impeachment in a nutshell.

That’s what it is all about — hurt feelings.

Jeff Van Drew Switched to Republican Party

Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey — an anti-impeachment Democrat — switched parties Thursday (12 December 2019) to join the GOP. The day earlier, he voted against both articles of impeachment.

Congressman Jeff Van Drew is very popular in our great and very united Republican Party. It was a tribute to him that he was able to win his heavily Republican district as a Democrat. People like that are not easily replaceable!

Pres. Donald Trump

One in the can. More to come?

On Thursday, Van Drew pledged his “undying” support to Trump, and the President endorsed him. But even he declared to be Republican now, his past — like, for example, voting record — is very democrat. He has voted against Trump about 90% of the time.

Rep. Van Drew still has a year to prove what side he’s on, but it’s highly unlikely that he will not have to face some other Republican in primaries. Businessman David Richter has his eye set on Van Drew’s congressional seat.

Van Drew has said that he’s well-positioned to keep his seat, claiming that about 70% of his district approves of him switching parties. Democrats, of course, are not impressed with this statement and are gearing for the fight. Brigid Harrison (political science professor at Montclair State University), announced that she would run, and she isn’t the only one considering getting into the race.

Van Drew is the 10th member of Congress to switch parties in the past 20 years.
Six Democrats went Republican,
three Republicans decided to go from red to blue,
and one Republican declared himself independent.

Rush Limbaugh: My Articles of Impeachment for the Next Democrat President

RUSH: Over the Christmas break, I’m gonna be sitting down with Republican leaders and drawing up articles of impeachment for the next Democrat president.

Source: My Articles of Impeachment for the Next Democrat President

This situation is insane.

Democrats managed to drag down the standards for impeachment to such a low level that from now on, any president will be facing the possibility of being impeached for any stupid reason the opposite political party in charge of the House will come up with.

The next Impeached president will be indicted for wearing his pants too high and eating breakfast too early, which, according to the U.S. Congress, will create a severe threat to the security of the United States.

Pres. Trump Impeached

Today, on December 18, 2019, Democrats in Congress voted Donald Trump to his second term as the president of the United States.

Thank You!


It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached. The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong. And we have tremendous support in the Republican party like we have never had before. Nobody has ever had this kind of support.

Donald Trump

The vote.

Abuse of power:
the count was 230-197 to impeach.

Obstruction of Congress:
the count was 229-198 to impeach.

Democrats:
Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey
Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota
voted with Republicans against both articles of impeachment
Democrat:
Rep. Jared Golden of Maine
voted yes on abuse of power and no on obstruction of Congress.
Democrat:
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted present.

Republicans:
No Republicans voted against Trump.

By Democrats’ standards, opposition to impeachment was heavily bipartisan.

The last thought on impeachment.

No last thought…
No last thought for a simple reason.
No one reasonable gives damn about this fiasco.

How each member of the House voted on impeachment
