Despite the Trump White House's insistence that the President has been vindicated and exonerated by the Senate vote to not remove him from office, acquittal does not mean exoneration in an impeachment trial, writes John Avlon.

Oh. Fuck. Off.

And impeachment is just an accusation. In this case by people who said they would accuse him of something....anything....spent 4 years performing criminal investigations and found nothing, so accused him of the crime of asking that a crime be investigated after a high ranking Democrat confessed to commuting that crime. Apparently the Democrats in the house think that holding Democrats to the law is a crime.

Don't worry, there is a decent chance it will be expunged.

Only democrats voted to move articles from house. Up to 4 voted against (or present) and one switched parties over it. The Senate came no where close to 2/3rds needed to convict and remove. Further more, even with RINO Romney's defection, the majority voted not guilty. It was absolutely, in no uncertain terms, an exoneration.

CNN is not news (fact).

Uh, yeah, it pretty much is exoneration. If you are accused of a crime in a criminal court and you win and get ACQUITTED, then yeah, it's NOT GUILTY and EXONERATION. You cannot be punished in any way after an acquittal.

And one-party impeachment in the house is not proof of guilt.

Who didn't see this word game coming? FO CNN.
