So, it looks like the attempt to impeach President Trump for doing absolutely nothing has finally failed:


President Donald Trump has been cleared in his impeachment trial, ending a congressional bid to oust him from office that bitterly divided the US.

The Senate, run by the president's fellow Republicans, voted to acquit him 52-48 on charges of abuse of power and 53-47 on obstruction of Congress.

Democrats charged Mr Trump in December with pressuring Ukraine to smear a potential White House rival.

In November, Mr Trump will be the first impeached president to go for election.

In its historic vote on Wednesday, the Senate decided not to remove America's 45th president from office on charges arising from his dealings with Ukraine.

If convicted on either charge, Mr Trump would have had to turn over his office to Vice-President Mike Pence.

This is good news, of course, but, pattern recognition tells us just what to expect next.

Following on from the piss dossier, the phoney allegations of Russian collusion, the Mueller Inquiry, and all the other tricks that we have seen deployed over the last few years, the impeachment trial was just the latest cooked-up nothing-burger intended to keep the President on the back foot. 

The fact that Trump has been cleared, acquitted, and exonerated yet again means absolutely zilch. All it means is there might be a brief respite. But, as sure as night follows day, you can be sure that the Deep State, the Dems, and of course the media will immediately start cooking up a new "pseudo-scandal." In fact I think they already have, this one focused on John Bolton:

Mr Trump has probably not heard the last of the Ukraine investigation.

Jerry Nadler, the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said on Wednesday the chamber would "likely" issue a subpoena to Mr Trump's former National Security Adviser, John Bolton.

Senate Republicans ultimately declined to seek Mr Bolton's testimony during the president's impeachment trial, provoking uproar from Democrats.

A manuscript of a forthcoming Bolton memoir reportedly alleges Mr Trump told his former national security adviser to help him pressure Ukraine.

Yup, more nothing-burgers on the way.
