Democrats simply can’t let go of their phony impeachment.
They’re far too emotionally invested to let go, so even when the Senate acquits Trump this coming week, they are going to say it doesn’t count because they’ve got nothing else.
The narrative is already taking shape.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Democrats: Trump’s Acquittal Doesn’t Count
Leading Democrats have already said President Donald Trump’s pending acquittal in his impeachment trial is not legitimate due to Friday’s vote against admitting new witnesses.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Thursday Trump will “not be acquitted” if his trial doesn’t have witnesses, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) has repeatedly said Trump’s acquittal will have “zero” value.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) said Friday, “You cannot have a true acquittal if you’ve not had a fair trial,” echoing remarks she made in other interviews this week.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D., Conn.) said Friday he agreed with Pelosi, telling MSNBC’s Morning Joe it would not be a “real acquittal,” and Sen. Jeff Merkley (D., Ore.) told CNN’s New Day Friday “it’s not an exoneration.”
“He may get an acquittal but he’s not going to get an exoneration,” House impeachment manager Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D., Calif.) told MSNBC on Sunday. Another impeachment manager, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D., N.Y.), said on CNN Friday “how can the American people conclude justice was done” without witnesses, and leading manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said last week that Trump wouldn’t benefit from an acquittal if it didn’t appear fair.

The Democrats will repeat this message from now until election day.
They are completely shameless and incapable of admitting that they lost this battle.
In the long run, it won’t matter, because the American people know the truth.
The Democrats never had a case and this was all about politics.
