During an interview with Christiane Amanpour of CNN, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi couldn’t hold back her frustration when she refused to accept the fact that President Trump has been acquitted by the United States Senate.
Below is the conversation that took place between Pelosi and Christiane Amanpour during the course of the interview:
Christiane Amanpour: “What about, though, the fact that the president seems liberated, and this is about democratic politics so I’m not asking you to criticize here, but he was acquitted, his poll ratings are high…”
Nancy Pelosi: “He was not… there was no… You can’t have an acquittal unless you have a trial, and you can’t have a trial unless you have witnesses and documents. So he can say he’s acquitted, and the headlines can say ‘acquitted,’ but he’s impeached forever, branded with that, and not vindicated.”
