Four takeaways from Trump impeachment trial

Meanwhile, President Trump said he will deliver a "victory speech" today at 12 pm (6 pm Nigerian time).

Trump turned his back, and the speaker quickly withdrew her hand, appearing to shrug slightly and raise her eyebrows as if to say, "Well, I tried". What's more, she argued, Pelosi is the speaker of the House-not Democrats.

Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona said he's introducing a resolution to censure and condemn Pelosi.

Pelosi criticized Trump for giving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, accidentally calling it the "Medal of Honor", to conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh during his speech.

Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., has announced that will vote to convict President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment, Politico reported on Wednesday.

The 52-48 vote fell largely along party lines.

A number of Democrats reportedly called Pelosi's behavior "despicable" and said they will never vote Democrat again.

Fox News' senior political analyst Brit Hume offered similar sentiments, saying: "Pretty clear the extent to which Trump has frustrated Pelosi".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a wordless reaction to President Trump's combative State of the Union Speech on Tuesday - she tore her copy of it in half at the end of the address. "The president is to submit in writing or in person his statement of the state of the union". The ripping was not planned, according to a person close to the Democrat speaker who was unauthorized to speak publicly.

Interestingly, there was no mention of the impeachment saga in his speech. But the Senate chose instead to ignore the facts, the will of the American people and their duty to the Constitution. Pelosi and Trump have exchanged jibes at multiple occasions, especially since Trump was impeached in the House, with Pelosi at the helm of the process. "I shredded the state of his mind address", she said.

With Trump blissfully unaware behind the rostrum, the act was in full view of the television cameras.

Mr Trump avoided the subject of his impeachment drama in a pugnacious 80-minute speech, but the scars from the battle were evident with fellow Republicans giving him standing ovations while rival Democrats, for the most part, remained seated.

After Pelosi opened an impeachment inquiry into Trump in late September, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump on the two impeachment articles on December 18.
