Brutal Video Compares Bill Clinton's and Donald Trump's Acquittal Speeches and They Couldn't Be More Different
Former President Bill Clinton admitted to lying under oath about an affair with a 22 year old White House intern. He was impeached and acquitted, with all Senate Democrats and five Senate Republicans acquitting him on all articles of impeachment.
President Donald Trump withheld aid from a foreign ally on the condition that the country's president open investigations into his political rivals. Senate Republicans refused to hear firsthand witnesses with explosive allegations in the Senate trial. Multiple Senate Republicans condemned Trump's actions, but only one voted to convict him—the first time in U.S. history a Senator voted to convict an impeached President of his or her own party.
Though both Presidents were acquitted, a new video from The Recount is demonstrating just how differently the two men treated the outcome.
