US Senate Holds Final Vote on Trump's Impeachment

20200205 Romney Impeach Disdain between Trump and Pelosi on full view at State of the Union
Andrew Wong | 07 February, 2020, 01:11

Rep. Katherine Clark, vice chair of the Democratic Caucus, said the president and his allies "will do a victory lap today" but added that "history and the truth are right behind them and will overtake them".

The businessman-turned-politician, 73, survived only the third presidential impeachment trial in U.S. history, just like the two other impeached presidents, Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson.

And that's saying something, considering her unapologetic style when it comes to him. In downtown Bakersfield, the State of the Union was eventually turned off and local Democrats continued with their monthly "Dinner with Democrats" focus on finding solutions for issues in Kern County. Her calculated attempt to undermine the president horrifically backfired. And she stalked out of a White House meeting with him in October, bluntly suggesting the president is controlled by his counterpart in Russian Federation.

President Donald Trump's State of the Union address was delivered in a very tense and sharply divided partisan atmosphere on Tuesday.


"Wow. Nancy ripped my speech. I shredded the address", she said. He is in no position to lecture anyone about the Constitution, decorum or respect as he cheerleads the mistruths of his master, ' Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill told DailyMail.com.

"It's been very hard for me".

Following the vote, Trump accused Romney of being a "secret asset" of the Democratic Party and of only "posing" to be a Republican.

"I tore it up", Pelosi said as she was leaving the chamber. "What we heard last night was a disgrace".


Steve Scalise, R-La., reacts to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ripping up a copy of President Trump's State of the Union speech. "The Senate voted to reject the baseless articles of impeachment, and only the President's political opponents - all Democrats, and one failed Republican presidential candidate - voted for the manufactured impeachment articles", the statement said. Jones is considered the most endangered Democrat in this November's elections, so his decision is significant. The party had a political hangover from the debacle Monday night in Iowa, whose kickoff caucuses ended in delays, fury and mockery from Republicans.

Despite belonging to Trump's party, the Republican party, Senator Romney voted to convict the USA president on the impeachment charges filed against him. They booed and groaned, but more often, just sat still as Trump spoke.

Pelosi's action led to widespread Republican condemnation that spilled over onto the House floor when Granger introduced the privileged resolution. The two had not seen each other since October, when Pelosi abruptly left a White House meeting after lecturing a scowling Trump.
