(Tea Party PAC) – There’s nothing quite as glorious as seeing Hillary Clinton, the bane of America’s existence, completely dejected and heartbroken over something, especially when that something is the acquittal of President Trump from all of this impeachment nonsense the left has attempted to use to boot him from office.
Hillary recently went on a little spiel where she accused the senators who voted “not guilty” in the impeachment trial of betraying their oath to uphold the Constitution, because, well, they didn’t join the darkside and turn on their president.
Here’s more on this from Breitbart:
“As the president’s impeachment trial began, Republican senators pledged an oath to defend the Constitution,” Clinton wrote following the Senate clearing President Trump on both charges.
“Today, 52 of them voted to betray that oath—and all of us,” she continued. “We’re entering dangerous territory for our democracy. It’ll take all of us working together to restore it”:

The Senate acquitted the president on both charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — on Wednesday afternoon, effectively ending the impeachment trial.
“It is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be, and he is hereby, acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts announced:

Here’s a little more on the impeachment vote from the NY Post:
The Senate voted Wednesday afternoon to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him.
The chamber first handily voted down the article alleging abuse of power, 52-48, affirming an outcome that was widely expected essentially since the trial’s start on Jan. 21.
Minutes later, it voted 53-47 against the second article, alleging obstruction of Congress.
The effort to remove Trump from office needed the support of at least two-thirds — or 67 members — of the GOP-controlled body to carry, but Utah Sen. Mitt Romney was the only one of the 53 Republicans in the chamber to cross party lines and vote to convict on the first article.
He responded “Not guilty” on the second article, making that acquittal a strictly party-line vote.
Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat in the Trump stronghold of West Virginia, stuck to party lines, voting to convict.
No president has ever been removed from office via impeachment.
Approved in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives in December, the two articles alleged wrongdoing by Trump in his request that Ukraine probe former US Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter over their dealings in Ukraine.
Democrats alleged that that ask — made during a July 2019 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — constituted a quid pro quo because $391 million in US military aid to Ukraine hung in the balance at the time.
Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, and characterized the impeachment push as a partisan “witch hunt.”
Despite passing in the House, the impeachment bid was long expected to falter in the upper chamber.
Seemingly the final nail in the coffin came when the Senate voted last week, 51-49, to not call any witnesses in the trial.
Swing-vote Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) have said they felt Trump committed actions that were “inappropriate,” but did not warrant removal from office.
Following the acquittal, both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) thanked the chamber’s pages as well as the presiding judge, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
There’s nothing quite as satisfying as Hillary tears of disappointment. It’s like enjoying her loss in the 2016 presidential election all over again, which was a joy the first time around and still hasn’t lost its flavor.
Perhaps Hillary ought to consider retiring from public life, seeing as she doesn’t have a chance of ever becoming president? It would save her future embarrassment and would, in general, be a blessing to the country.
