Geraldo Rivera declared victory Sunday on behalf of President Donald Trump, saying that the Senate’s impeachment trial was “all over but the shouting.”

“Gloom settling on Democrats as they realize they’ve taken their best kill shot & missed,” Rivera tweeted. “Dems in despair. Republicans United. @realDonaldTrump survives & #Impeachment all over but the shouting.”

Rivera, who has said from the beginning that he was not thrilled with the contents of the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, has also argued that nothing on that call constituted an impeachable offense.

He reasserted that position Saturday in another series of tweets.

Rivera concluded by blaming the Democrats, many of the same people who had gone all in on accusations of collusion with Russia, for impeaching Trump “for conduct that was not criminal.”

“Shame on them,” he added.
