Trump's acquittal does not mean he is innocent. The trial was a sham.
It is a sham because there were no witnesses and no requested documents submitted as evidence.

This is all fun and good until a Democrat does what Trump has done in the future. Then you Republicans will cry like banshees!!
You must live in a bubble. Obama did 10 x more to warrant impeachment than Trump has, but you've probably chosen to ignore it. The Democrats are the ones that needs to worry about their double standards.

Trump's acquittal does not mean he is innocent. The trial was a sham. It is a sham because there were no witnesses and no requested documents submitted as evidence. The Senators are accomplices to Trump's crimes. Trump clearly broke several laws but Republicans show their true colors by putting their party before country. The rule-of-law, presidential oath of office, and our Constitution are no longer important to Republicans.
The underlying causes of impeachment are not going away. Trump's determination to wield sweeping unrestrained power and his refusal to accept the checks and balances our Constitution dictates means we have finally entered into dictatorship. The Constitution is now toilet paper and has been flushed down the toilet.
Republicans finally got their military style STRONG leadership they've been aiming towards all these years. Presidents are no longer accountable to the laws of our nation.
Dictatorship will have implications. Here's the thing for all you Republicans out there who think you've "won". The end of our Constitutional democracy and our new era of dictatorship may seem like good news to you.
But here's the thing. Whichever dictator jockeys himself into power there may come a time when you do not like what our dictator is doing. And since the Constitution has become toilet paper you will have no political recourse. This is the funny thing about dictatorship. When it's working for you it's great. When it's not working for you it sucks monkey balls.
Welcome to the new era of American dictatorship! People who violate loyalty pledges will be severely punished! All hail King Trump!

I agree the trial should have had witnesses.
All should have been put on the stand.
Then Democrates would have felt better knowing there was no crime.
And the Republicans would have hope that those three would spend time in jail.
