The overwhelming sense is that the whole impeachment sham was a total waste of time and taxpayer money.
“That is why, in the middle of all this political theatrics, the president’s approval numbers are the highest he has ever had. The people can recognize an injustice when they see it, and what the Democrats did to the President with this … read more Why Christians Are Rejoicing Over Trump’s Acquittal in the Impeachment Trial (Ep. 21)
