After successfully leading arguably the most partisan witch hunt in modern American history, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was just hit with an “impeachment notice” of her own.
President Donald Trump made it official on social media and it has already been liked and shared collectively almost 220,000 times.
“95% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a Record!” tweeted Trump. “53% overall (plus add 9 points?). Corrupt Democrat politicians have brought me to highest polling numbers ever.”
Trump attributed his rising fortunes to the “Impeachment Hoax” and gave a special shout-out to Pelosi.
“Thank you Nancy!” he exclaimed.

Trump is making an important point — the impeachment farce didn’t hurt him, it helped him.
Democrats thought they had an ace-in-the-hole, and they were wrong.
Unfortunately for Pelosi and her anti-Trump allies, the Senate refused to play political games and acquitted Trump of both bogus charges.
And now, even current betting odds show that the president has the best odds by far to win the 2020 election.
Betting aggregator Oddschecker.com has Trump’s chances at 59.99 percent of winning re-election and serving a second term in office.
Trump’s odds of victory are now 5-7, according to Oddschecker.
The firm’s spokesman, Pete Watt, said, “Trump is at an all-time high.”
“Some oddsmakers have gone into full panic mode,” Watt said.
Far behind is Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has a 16.7% chance of winning the White House, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg with an 11% chance.
But with the Democratic race in turmoil after Iowa flubbed its caucuses and indications showing a strong first- or second-place finish for former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, gamblers are scrambling to fine-tune their bets among the sites Oddschecker examines.
Notably, those betting on the outcome of the New Hampshire primary next week have started to pull the bets for former Vice President Joe Biden, rejected again by Iowa Democrats, and put more on Sanders and Buttigieg.
Betting odds for the 2020 Presidential election update daily, but the most recent numbers reflect that Trump now sits as the -160 favorite to win in the upcoming election, up from a -120 odds offering just four days earlier.
Betting odds have already moved Sen. Bernie Sanders to the front of the pack in terms of winning the Democratic nomination.
At the moment, Bernie Sanders leads the pack +175 odds followed by Bloomberg (+400), Biden (+450) and Buttigieg (+600). Andrew Yang and Elizabeth Warren have +1200 odds and all other candidates are +2500 or higher.
The report came days after the GOP-controlled Senate voted to acquit Trump of both articles of impeachment.
After nearly five months of sham hearings, bogus allegations, and still no evidence Trump did anything wrong, the impeachment witch hunt is finally over.
