Shortly after 1pm on February, 13th 2021, the Senate of the United States acquitted former (Real President) President Donald Trump of inciting the storm on the Capitol building on January 6th, 2021.
(Bloomberg) — Former President Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate Saturday on the charge of inciting the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol after an unprecedented second impeachment trial that exposed a Republican Party deeply divided over Trump’s conduct and uneasy with his continued role in public life.
The vote was 57-43, falling short of the two-thirds majority required for a conviction but significantly with seven Republicans joining with Democrats and independents in finding Trump guilty on the single impeachment count.
It was the most Senate support to convict a president since Andrew Johnson’s impeachment trial in 1868. Although the impeachment and the events that precipitated it may have soured some voters on Trump, the acquittal leaves the door open to Trump running for president again in 2024.
Few Senate Republicans have defended Trump’s behavior, and even allies like John Cornyn of Texas called his remarks before the storming of the Capitol “reckless.” But in the end, most voted to acquit the president, who continues to have a fervent following among Republican voters.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had criticized Trump’s attempt to overturn the election even before the riot, was among the not guilty votes. After the verdict, McConnell excoriated Trump, saying he is “practically and morally responsible” for sparking the riot.…
So, what does this all mean? Well, nothing, really. I guess it does mean something for all the Qtards who would like to see “the plan” come to fruition. Essentially waiting for the other shoe to drop, kinda thing. Hoping that Trump makes a run for the presidency, again in 2024.
Other than that? We’ll just have to wait and see.
