'Double Jeopardy Does Not Apply': CNN Looks for More Impeachment Charges

Moments after the Senate acquitted President Trump of the impeachment charges against him, CNN’s The Lead looked to the future and to House Democrats who were zealously trying to drum up more impeachment charges. “Double jeopardy does not apply in politics,” chief national correspondent John King proclaimed to the rest of the panel, clearly looking for Trump to be retried on the charges he was just found “not guilty” of committing.

“And so, as the new revelations come out, whether it’s the Bolton book, whether it’s the new e-mails our Vivian Salama of CNN reporting on today that do shed new light on the controversies here,” he added.

Missing the asinine Democratic tactic of sending the charges to the Senate before finishing their investigation, King then proceeded to tout how Democrats were still trying to gather evidence for their case:

Nancy Pelosi and her House, Jerry Nadler saying today, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, they’re going to subpoena John Bolton. That’s risky, for the Democrats. That’s risky because it’s tee-ball for Trump politically to say it is gratuitous, this is all political. But, it’s also risky for all these senators who just voted on the President's side as all this new information comes out.

“So, we should pause and reflect on the history of today in the context of impeachment, this is over, but it’s not over,” he said.
