Speaker Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her never-ending crusade to remove Donald Trump from the White House before the 2020 election this week; saying the Commander-in-Chief was never “acquitted” because there was “no trial.”
“You can’t have an acquittal unless you have a trial and you can’t have a trial without witnesses and documents,” Pelosi told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “So he can say he was acquitted, and the headlines can say acquitted but he’s impeached forever, branded with that and not vindicated.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped-by ‘Hannity’ last month to weigh-in on the President’s overwhelming acquittal; saying the Democratic Party is behaving like “a bunch of children.”
“They look diminished, small, petty, and insignificant to me. Your thoughts?” asked Hannity.
“Right now, this is a political loser for them. They initiated it, they thought this was a great idea. For the short term, it’s been a colossal political mistake,” said McConnell. “The Speaker tearing up the President’s speech? How childish and petty is that? What kind of example does that set for the American people?” asked McConnell.
“We’re in Congress, sitting together, among ourselves. We ought to be able to disagree and not behave like a bunch of children,” he added. “You can best describe it as Trump Derangement Syndrome. Whatever he’s for, they have a negative response to it immediately.”
'FANTASYLAND': McConnell Says It’s ‘Inconceivable’ 67 Senators Will Vote to Remove Trump
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment frenzy Tuesday; saying “it’s inconceivable” that 67 Senators will vote to remove President Trump from office.
“It’s inconceivable to me that it would be 67 votes to remove the president from office,” McConnell told reporters during the third day of the public impeachment inquiry.

McConnell made similar comments last week.
“I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate,” McConnell told USA Today.
“Nothing is happening because House Democrats seized with Trump derangement syndrome are consumed with this argument with the president,” he said.
McConnell made similar comments last week; telling reporters “I will say I’m pretty sure how it’s likely to end. If it were today, I don’t think there’s any question it would not lead to a removal.”
Meanwhile, House Democrats refuse to commit to a formal timeline of their investigation into the President’s dealings with Ukraine.
“I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to the president’s tweets and the legal implications of them. I just think that was totally wrong and inappropriate and typical of the president,” Pelosi told CBS News.
“I have no idea,” she responded when asked if the process could drag-on into 2020.
