US President Donald Trump celebrated his exoneration in the US Senate’s isolation trial with a celebration speech in which he attacked the American intelligence community and blamed “dirty policemen” for accusing him in the first place.
Trump carried the front page of the Washington Post that carried the title of “Trump’s innocence” in clear enthusiasm, and said: “I passed through hell, unjustly, I did not sin.” Then he asked to put the newspaper in a frame for suspension.
“This is not a press conference, it’s not a speech – it’s a celebration,“ said Trump, speaking in the East Hall, which is filled with high-ranking figures in the administration, Trump family members and Republican congressmen, who have not stopped clapping time and time again.
He began to blame “dirty policemen” in the American intelligence community for investigations, first, in his dealings with Russia during the 2016 elections, then last year a campaign of pressure on Ukraine to investigate his Democratic rivals, especially Joe Biden’s son, which started investigations Insulation.
Trump was acquitted in his Senate trial, which was to hold a four-month investigation, into each of the accountability materials he faced – accusations of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, because of his threat to the Ukrainian government by withholding military aid to date. He agreed to investigate Trump’s political opponents, then banned witnesses and evidence from congressional investigators.
The innocent vote shortly after 4 pm local time in Washington on Wednesday ended the threat to remove Trump from his post and conclude the accountability process.
Senators voted that Trump was not guilty, despite some Republicans declaring that Trump’s behavior regarding Ukraine was dangerously inappropriate, and Democrats accusing the president of using foreign relations to cheat in the 2020 elections.
Trump became the third president in US history to be sacked by the House of Representatives, but was acquitted of a Senate trial. A two-thirds majority of the Senate’s 67 members had to remove him.
Mitt Romney was the only Republican to vote in favor of Trump’s condemnation and became the only senator in history to vote to dismiss a party from his party in an impeachment trial.
