Pelosi Objects to CNN Anchor's Claim That Trump Was Acquitted in Impeachment Trial

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) interjected during an interview Saturday to make the case that President Trump was not acquitted from impeachment because his Senate trial lacked additional witnesses and documents demanded by Senate Democrats.

“You can’t have an acquittal unless you have a trial, and you can’t have a trial unless you have witnesses and documents — so he can say he’s acquitted, and the headlines can say ‘acquitted,’ but he’s impeached forever: branded with that, and not vindicated,” Pelosi argued.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) used the 53-47 Republican majority in the Senate to push for a trial that mirrored that of former president Bill Clinton with a vote to call witnesses after opening arguments from both sides. After days of back and forth, and a push to include testimony from former NSA adviser John Bolton, the Senate ultimately voted 51-49 to reject additional witnesses, as Senators Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine joined Democrats to call for more evidence.

Speaking to CNN Saturday, the House Speaker went on to praise Romney for voting with Democrats to impeach Trump. Romney explained his decision at the time as one made with “thorough analysis and searching,” including prayer. “I don’t pretend that God told me what to do . . . I’m subject to my own conscience,” he told The Atlantic.

8. That WAS NOT a trial like President Clinton's because That trial had witnesses and tons of documents


This "fake trial" had none of those qualities. SAD!

As I recall this time around the republicants didn't want anyone to testify or did they want to see documents.

So, NO TRIAL, P E R I O D.

3. Republicans are Corrupted.

Trump/Putin.....who knows what kompramat exists on this Party that sold it's soul almost 50 years ago. Remember, Nixon's crimes were breaking into the DNC and stealing information. Trump kas weaponized it into a Presidential Perogative, endorsed by the collection of hypocrites who call themselves a Republican Party.

I knew Bill Cohen, R-ME, and I am sure he he doesn't stand with these criminals.

12. She's supposed to be one of the better correspodents out there.

Seems many of them get into "group-speak" and just regurgitate what the rest of the media spews. She of all people with all her experience should not make that mistake and have to be corrected.

We here on DU don't make that mistake.

13. We were

introduced to her by a Reporter from one of our local TV Stations who our eldest son knew and worked with. Like I said,this really blew me away because we had just enjoyed a couple of hours of Historical Background of relationships of US presidents,politicians and the Arab world and how the News Media fails to tell the real stories on how life really is on the ground and how Editors and Copy writers spin it for their so called audience.

15. I think she does know better

Anyone who remembers their Civics teachings from high school knows this.

This is lying and misdirection from her corporate masters.

I am super sick of hearing how CNN is part of the left wing media! Corporate media was never liberal; it's a ficticous construct designed to gaslight us all.

16. Extremely disappointed in Christiane Amanpour 😡

Omg, the ignorant audacity she showed!!! Never again will I listen to her. What a whore she has turned into!

Nancy's answers were perfect but I do not know how our Madam Speaker maintained such amazing composure.
