Mr President takes victory lap after acquittal at impeachment trial

President, Donald Trump called his impeachment and the Russia investigation “bulls***” during a televised White House speech to supporters and the nation, a day after his Republican allies in the Senate acquitted him on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

He came to the East Room victory lap event with scores to settle aplenty, bemoaning the special counsel’s Russia election meddling probe and other investigations of his 2016 campaign and presidency.

“It was all bulls***”, he said of those investigations and House Democrats’ impeachment probe. He mocked Democrats over former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which failed to state clearly if he committed any crimes and explicitly stated it would have exonerated him if Mr Mueller had concluded no crimes were committed.
