Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is the first in her position to bring two failed impeachments. On Saturday, President Trump was acquitted of impeachment allegations after Pelosi announced the second impeachment last month.

After the vote, Pelosi expressed frustration in a press conference and called Republicans cowards for not convicting Trump. She further targeted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said he voted to acquit Trump because the Senate doesn’t have the power to convict a private citizen.

“What we saw in that Senate today was a cowardly group of Republicans who apparently have no options,” Pelosi stated. “Because they were afraid to defend their job, respect the institution in which they serve.”

Although seven Republican senators voted to convict the 45th President, he received enough votes to avoid conviction.
