“There Can Be No Acquittal Without a Trial” – Pelosi Accuses GOP Senators of a ‘Cover-Up’ After They Vote to Block Additional Witnesses
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday evening accused Republican Senators of being accomplices to President Trump’s cover-up after they voted to block additional witnesses in the impeachment trial.
In a huge win for President Trump and his defense team, the senate voted against impeachment witnesses in a 51-49 vote on Friday afternoon.
President Trump’s all-star defense team completely destroyed Schiff and the Democrats.
Pelosi lost and she will be thrown out of her position as Speaker of the House after the 2020 election.
After rushing impeachment through the House, denying President Trump due process and blocking GOP Reps from bringing in witnesses and documents, Pelosi had the nerve to lash at at Republican senators.
Pelosi thinks she is in charge of the senate and said ‘Trump cannot be acquitted’ because there was no trial.
Pelosi’s full statement:
“The Senate Republicans’ vote against calling witnesses and compelling documents in the impeachment proceedings makes them accomplices to the President’s cover-up.
“The President was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He is impeached forever. There can be no acquittal without a trial. And there is no trial without witnesses, documents and evidence.
“It is a sad day for America to see Senator McConnell require the Chief Justice of the United States to preside over a vote which rejected our nation’s judicial norms, precedents and institutions to uphold the Constitution and the rule of law.”
The House Democrats brought a weak, politically-charged impeachment case to the senate and they lost.
President Trump will be acquitted next week when the senate casts the final vote.
President Trump was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. By refusing to call witnesses and compel documents, Senate Republicans have chosen to become accomplices in his cover-up. #DefendOurDemocracy https://t.co/cHfatTHnbh
