Trump Not Impeached by Senate for a Second Time; 7 Republicans Joined Dems (2/13/2021)

Posted by FactReal on February 13, 2021

The U.S. Senate voted today to acquit Donald Trump in the impeachment trial pushed by Democrats over their baseless claim that Trump incited an insurrection with his speech on January 6, 2021. [The transcript of Trump’s speech exonerates him.]

This is the second time Trump is acquitted in an impeachment trial pushed by Dems based on trump-up charges. [The transcript of Trump’s phone call to the Ukrainian president exonerated him. (PDF)]

Leftists have been trying to impeach Trump before he took office and thereafter.

Democrats have tried to impeach Trump for things they have done themselves.

Today, Senators voted 57-43. They fell short of the 67 votes (two-thirds) needed to convict former President Donald Trump.

– Richard Burr of North Carolina,
– Bill Cassidy of Louisiana,
– Susan Collins of Maine,
– Lisa Murkowski of Alaska,
– Mitt Romney of Utah,
– Ben Sasse of Nebraska and
– Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

Response from Donald J. Trump
C-SPAN tweeted:

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth.

My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.

Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.

It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party [DEMOCRAT PARTY] in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.

This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.

I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have bravely supported these important principles in these very difficult and challenging times.

Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!

We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.

Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

We remain one People, one family, and one glorious nation under God, and it’s our responsibility to preserve this magnificent inheritance for our children and for generations of Americans to come.

May God bless all of you, and may God forever bless the United States of America.

Where exactly does Trump call for an insurrection or for violence? Where does he say to his supporters to go and storm the Capitol?

Are we going to punish political speech from now on?
