Just days after President Trump was formally acquitted, Democrats led by impeachment managers Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler are are already setting the stage for new potential charges against him.
In an Op-Ed for Fox News, Arthur Herman says Republicans should thank Mitt Romney because “His vote has demonstrated for all to see that the effort to remove Trump from office springs not from an aversion to what he does but to who he is and what he represents in the course of recent American history.”
With Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler reeling over their failure to remove the President and his boisterous acquittal victory speech, it’s no surprise the most recent impeachment attempt may not be their last.

Still pending is a wide-open probe launched by Rep. Adam B. Schiff, California Democrat. Mr. Schiff has been investigating President Trump, his family and businesses, the Trump Organization, over the congressman’s suspicions of blackmail, money laundering and bribery.
Republican staffers say the inquiry was put on hold last fall pending the Ukraine impeachment proceedings led by Mr. Schiff. But there is no sign Mr. Schiff has given up trying to prove Mr. Trump is corrupt, and if the president is impeached again, the charges would likely come from this probe, informed sources said.
During his acquittal celebration on Thursday, President Trump hinted that Democrats may continue to try to impeach him.
“So we will probably have to do it again, because these people have gone stone-cold crazy, but I have beaten him all my life and I will beat him again if I have to,” President Trump said on Thursday at the White House. “But what they are doing is very unfair.”
Meanwhile, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York said after Wednesday’s Senate acquittal that it’s “likely” the Ukraine probe will go on. His committee also has been investigating any Trump-Russia election conspiracy.
Mr. Trump said of Mr. Nadler: “I always beat him, and I had to beat him another time and I will probably have to beat him again because if they find that I happen to walk across the street and maybe go against the light or something, let’s impeach him.”
“Of course, they’re going to try again,” said Pam Bondi, a former Florida attorney general and member of the president’s Senate trial defense team, on Fox News.
