Pelosi on CNN: Trump Was “Not” Acquitted


They say that “even a broken clock is right twice a day.”

Yes, that even includes CNN.

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour had an interview with Nancy Pelosi this week.

Amanpour asked Pelosi a question, which was based on the fact that President Trump was acquitted.

To reiterate: CNN was telling its viewers the truth, that the Senate acquitted President Trump.

But it was Pelosi who disrupted the interview to claim that the President was “NOT” acquitted.

That's right!

Nancy Pelosi is openly claiming that the Senate never acquitted Trump!

Where is she getting her news?

Newsweek has the details:

President Donald Trump wasn't acquitted of the impeachment charges against him because he didn't have a proper trial with witnesses, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, Pelosi said the president is "not vindicated" despite Republican senators voting against removing Trump from office.

"You can't have an acquittal unless you have a trial and you can't have a trial without witnesses and documents," Pelosi told 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."

The video of the full exchange can be watched below:

This is the not the first time that Pelosi has made such remarks.

Before the end of the trial, she claimed it wasn't a legitimate trial because the Senate didn't call extra witnesses.

Of course, all of this is despite the fact that the House itself didn't call those same witnesses.

The Blaze has more on the controvery below:

Pelosi's comments echo similar remarks she made before the conclusion of the Senate trial during one of her weekly press briefings when she also said that a trial requires witnesses and documents in order for a proper acquittal of the accused to be possible.

The question of whether or not to call extra witnesses became one of the more contentious points of the impeachment process in the Senate. Ultimately, only Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) decided to break ranks with their party and vote to prolong the trial by calling for more witness testimony.

In reality, despite the complaints and rhetorical swipes currently to be made about the process, the Senate did in fact hold an impeachment trial of President Trump and did in fact acquit him.

During that process, the findings collected by the House impeachment probe was entered into evidence as part of that trial, per the rules of the process. A majority of the chamber decided that they didn't need further witness testimony or document subpoenas in order to make that decision and when an insufficient number of senators voted to convict on both articles of impeachment, it was subsequently "ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be, and he is hereby, acquitted of the charges in said articles."

If you have any doubt that the Senate DID acquit President Trump, see the exact moment it happened for yourself:
