Acquitmas Day is here!
This Peechmint is over.
On to The Next Peechmint!
(You know it’s coming Spartans…)
Update: The voting begins with the reading of the “charges” against President Trump. Watch on the live stream below:
Update: The US Senate finds President Trump not guilty on Article 1-Abuse of Power 52-48. Two Independents and Traitor Mitt vote to convict.
Sooo… it’s wrong for Trump to allegedly investigate a political opponent… but IT’S PERFECTLY OK for Senators running against him for his position to vote to ban him from public office??? …Think about how biased that is for a minute.

The next vote is on Article 2: Obstruction of Congress. I expect we’ll see pretty much the same result, with Traitor Mitt being the lone Republican voting to convict because “MUH PRINCIPULS!!!”
Update: 53-47 against Article 2: Obstruction of Congress. President Trump is officially acquitted of these sham charges!
Update: Loser Hillary Clinton has a sad.
As the president’s impeachment trial began, Republican senators pledged an oath to defend the Constitution.
Today, 52 of them voted to betray that oath—and all of us.
We’re entering dangerous territory for our democracy. It’ll take all of us working together to restore it.

Update: The woman under federal investigation for marrying her brother in order to defraud immigration officials is beside herself with anger.
Imagine having the constitutional power — and duty — to hold the president accountable.
Then imagine abandoning that responsibility in the name of party politics.
It’s shameful that the Senate GOP abandoned its constitutional duty.

Update: Noted terrorist sympathizer and raving psycho is enraged.
It’s worse than letting a criminal get off. Their vote created a dictatorship. https://t.co/5fynRIxadA
