White House welcomes end of Trump impeachment trial

WASHINGTON, Feb 5 (KUNA) The White House hailed the Senate vote earlier Wednesday to acquit President Donald J. Trump of the charges of abuse of power and obstruction of the Congress.

“Today, the shame impeachment attempt concocted by Democrats ended in the full vindication and exoneration of President Trump,” according to a WH statement. “As we have said all along, he is not guilty. The Senate voted to reject the baseless articles of impeachment, and only the President’s political opponents all Democrats, and one failed Republican presidential candidate voted for the manufactured impeachment articles.

“This entire effort by the Democrats was aimed at overturning the results of the 2016 election and interfering with the 2020 election,” the statement said. “Throughout this wholly corrupt process, President Trump successfully advanced the interests of the United States and remained focused on the issues that matter to Americans. “He spent his time achieving real victories for the people of this country, and the Democrats once again have nothing to show for their fraudulent schemes. “The President is pleased to put this latest chapter of shameful behavior by the Democrats in the past, and looks forward to continuing his work on behalf of the American people in 2020 and beyond,” it added.
