Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono Claims Trump ‘Not Acquitted,' Gets Reality Check
Democrat gets roasted on CNN after making false claims
Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono (HI) seemed to be living in an alternate reality after she falsely claimed on Thursday that President Donald Trump was not acquitted after he was cleared of all impeachment charges on Wednesday.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer told Hirono, “The Senate has clearly spoken now, the president was acquitted."
But before Blitzer could finish his next question, he was interrupted by Hirono.
“No! Wolf (laughs), wasn’t acquitted,” Hirono falsely claimed.
“It was a rigged trial," Hirono blasted.
"You don’t get acquitted when you don’t even get to call witnesses or relevant witnesses or have the documents because the president stonewalled all efforts on the part of the House to get the information they requested.”
“So, there you go,” Hirono added.
“It was a rigged trial; he can run around saying he was acquitted, but you don’t get acquitted in a rigged trial.”
“Well, I just want to point out Senator, there was a roll call, guilty or not guilty, not guilty was the majority, and the Chief Justice of the United States announced that he was acquitted, that he was not guilty,” Blitzer responded.
“But the American public knows that it was a rigged trial,” Hirono claimed to float another conspiracy theory without any evidence.
“So, okay, you’re found not guilty in a rigged trial," she added.
"I don’t think that they think this was all kosher, not it wasn’t. So, meanwhile, you have the president crowing about it, which is totally expected, and now it’s anything goes for this president and this administration and all his enablers.”
You know who I go to for high level analysis? Sen. Mazie Hirono. Apparently Trump wasn't acquitted and she definitely doesn't suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome. pic.twitter.com/iuGfCYkY9W— (((Jason Rantz))) on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) February 7, 2020

Earlier this month, Hirono blasted Trump's legal defense, declaring she didn't "care" about his "legal" or "constitutional" arguments in response to the democrats calls for calling additional witnesses being voted down.
Thee Hawaii senator appeared to warn Trump that Democrats will continue to pursue the president, whether he acts legally and within the Constitution or not.
“I don't care what kind of nice, little, legal, constitutional defenses that they came up with,” Sen. Hirono declared.
Trump was acquitted on both charges on Wednesday, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, ending the impeachment trial.
“It is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be, and he is hereby, acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts announced.
