House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been taking jabs at President Donald Trump, claiming he is now “impeached forever.” Hardly the prayerful or sober effort that she claimed impeachment was.
This, of course, both reveals her political effort to smear him as well as her failure to acknowledge the nature of the Constitution, that yes, indeed there is a trial and there can be an acquittal. It’s saying someone accused in a very unfair process should somehow be tarred even when they’re found not guilty.
Pelosi and other Democrats in the House like House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) have shown they refused to accept facts, such as when their Russian hoax imploded on them and was debunked. Nadler was still pushing it. He claimed over the weekend that Trump “worked with the Russians to rig the 2016 election” and was going to rig it again in 2020.
But Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) flattened Pelosi on Sunday when he appeared with Fox’s Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Bartiromo asked how likely was it that the matter was going to be dismissed in the first 48 hours. Cruz said he didn’t that was very likely because he thought having an acquittal was preferable to a dismissal.
“I think dismissing this case is a much less attractive option than rendering final judgment and acquitting the president,” Cruz said. He then trolled Pelosi with his answer, mocking her claim that Trump would be “impeached forever.”
Once the Senate provides @realDonaldTrump the opportunity to defend himself—which the House didn’t do—I’m confident when we get to final judgment, POTUS will be acquitted forever of @SpeakerPelosi’s bogus #impeachment charges. pic.twitter.com/4NrbpjwNrr

From Daily Wire:
And the reason is twofold,” Cruz said. “Number one, if you do a dismissal, a dismissal doesn’t reach the merits. An acquittal, a verdict of not guilty, that verdict stands for all time.”
“Nancy Pelosi is going out on TV crowing that the president has been impeached forever,” Cruz continued. “Well, when we get to final judgment, the president will have been acquitted forever of these bogus impeachment charges. That’s a much better outcome for the president and for the country.”
