The House impeachment managers for President Trump's now-completed trial in the Senate penned an op-ed Thursday arguing that Trump and the GOP-controlled Senate will be permanently stained by what they argued was an unfair process, leading to "not guilty" verdicts on both articles of impeachment.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News Wednesday that Democrats' impeachment of President Trump had backfired and instead united the Republican Party behind the commander-in-chief.
The Democratic Party's failed effort to impeach and remove President Donald Trump was a major political miscalculation likely to benefit Republicans, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday. "Right now this is a political loser for them. They initiated it. They thought this was a great idea," McConnell told reporters after the Senate voted along party lines to acquit Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. "At least for the short term, it has been a colossal political mistake," McConnell said.
President Donald Trump won impeachment acquittal in the US Senate, bringing to a close only the third presidential trial in American history. Before the vote, both the majority and minority leaders argued their cases one last time. (Feb. 5)
