English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. acquittal(n)

    Acquittal is a release from a charge, after trial, as not guilty. Pardon is a removal of penalty from one who has been adjudged guilty. Acquittal is by the decision of a court, commonly of a jury; pardon is the act of the executive. An innocent man may demand acquittal, and need not plead for pardon. Pardon supposes an offense; yet, as our laws stand, to grant a pardon is sometimes the only way to release one who has been wrongly convicted. Oblivion, from the Latin, signifies overlooking and virtually forgetting an offense, so that the offender stands before the law in all respects as if it had never been committed. Amnesty brings the same idea through the Greek. Pardon affects individuals; amnesty and oblivion are said of great numbers. Pardon is oftenest applied to the ordinary administration of law; amnesty, to national and military affairs. An amnesty is issued after war, insurrection, or rebellion; it is often granted by "an act of oblivion," and includes a full pardon of all offenders who come within its provisions. Absolution is a religious word (compare synonyms for ABSOLVE). Remission is a discharge from penalty; as, the remission of a fine.

    Synonyms:
    absolution, amnesty, forbearance, forgiveness, mercy, oblivion, pardon, pardon, remission

    Antonyms:
    penalty, punishment, retaliation, retribution, vengeance

    Preposition:
    A pardon to or for the offenders; for all offenses; the pardon of offenders or offenses.

  1. Tom Perez:

    Sekulow added. During a lengthy presentation before the Senate on Thursday, Rep. Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas, rehashed corruption allegations Trump has floated against Hunter Bidens and sought to debunk them. The point was to show that there was no legitimate basis for Trump to be seeking an investigation into Hunter Bidens, and the request to Ukraines presidentwas made purely to dirty up a Democratic rival who was polling better than him. WHO ARE THE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT MANAGERS ? MEET PELOSIS HAND-PICKED PROSECUTORS There was no basis for the investigation that the president was pursuing and pushing. None. He was doing it only for his political benefit, Sylvia Garcia said. But the presentation took some Republicans by surprise, and some suggested The House Democrats may have handed them a perfect opportunity to scrutinize how Huner Biden joined the board of a Ukraine energy company, Burisma, in 2014, while Huner Biden father was playing a key role in handling then-President Obamas Ukraine policy. The House Democrats perhaps unintentionally threw Huner Biden under the bus, said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said Josh Hawley was surprised by how much time Democrats devoted to trying to debunk any legitimate reason why Trump would want to investigate Huner Biden and Huner Biden and said the House impeachment managers really opened the door for Hunter Bidens to play a central role in the trial and become material witnesses. If were going to call witnesses, [ Democrats ] have made the case very successfully that we need to call Huner Biden and probably Huner Biden, Josh Hawley said Friday. Trump has peddled the highly-contested accusation that the elder Huner Biden pressed for the firing of top Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin to spareBurisma from scrutiny. Ousting Shokin was, in fact, the official position of the U.S. government and its Western allies, including European Union nations and the International Monetary Fund leadership, because Shokin was believed to be incompetent or corrupt himself. Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Committee, blasted Republicans on Friday following opening arguments by House managers. The presidents guilt is indisputable and Tom Perez actions are indefensible, the evidence against Trump is overwhelming. And his abuse of power is a clear and present danger to the future of our democracy. For those reasons, it is unconscionable for Senate Republicans to let Trump off the hook with a sham trial. Make no mistake : A trial without documents or witnesses is a cover-up. If Trump is acquitted after he has confessed and suggested hed do it again the Senate will have legitimized foreign interference in our elections and ruled it acceptable for our leaders to extort other countries for personal gain. The former vice president said in December he sees no legal basis to be called because the impeachment case against Trump is about the presidents actions, not Huner Biden or his sons. Huner Biden told reporters that Huner Biden joined the Burisma board without notifying Huner Biden father ; theres no law preventing a vice presidents son from taking international posts, just as Trumps children still advance Huner Biden real estate interests abroad. Ukrainian officials have said they found no wrongdoing in Hunter Bidens service on the board. SENATORS PLAY WITH FIDGET SPINNERS, STRESS BALLS TO PASS TIME DURING IMPEACHMENT Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said hes seen no evidence against Hunter Bidens and Mark Warner wont second guess the strategy of the House impeachment managers to spend so much time on them in their presentation. Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Mark Warner viewed The House Democrats move as a chance to counter what they believe the presidents lawyers would put forward. Im anxious to hear any kind of evidentiary facts, other than simply innuendo, Mark Warner said Friday of Trumps defense team. I know weve heard a lot of innuendoes so far. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has rejected moves to call witnesses, saying it could turn the trial into a circus, and Lindsey Graham has advocated for a speedy trial and Trump acquittal. Still, Lindsey Graham said hes convinced Huner Biden and Hunter Bidens conduct in Ukraine needs to be investigated -- but after the impeachment trial is over. Im going to look at them, Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Friday.Are you going to impeach me ? Because somebody should [ investigate ]. Id prefer Senate Judiciary Committee not to be me, Id prefer Senate Judiciary Committee to be somebody like [ Special Counsel Robert ] Mueller [ because ] this is not good foreign policy. This is not good government. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS The House Democrats impeached Trump on two articles : abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. They had three days to present their case to senators. Trumps legal team will get their shot starting Saturday.Sekulow billed their weekend presentation as a.

  2. Chuck Schumer:

    The verdict of this kangaroo court will be meaningless. By refusing the facts, by refusing witnesses and documents the Republican majority has placed a giant asterisk, the asterisk of a sham trial, next to the acquittal of President Donald Trump, written in permanent ink, acquittal in an unfair trial with this giant asterisk, the asterisk of a sham trial, is worth nothing at all to President Donald Trump or anybody else.

  3. Cemal Temizoz:

    I fought against terrorism and organized crime, i did the impossible in Cizre: I made it a peaceful town. I request my acquittal.

  4. Slobodan Jovicic:

    We had two goals -- one goal was that my client was going to be a free man today, and then we are hoping for an acquittal in 14 days, but we have to wait and see.

  5. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

    The speaker of The House says that Senate Republicans refuses to accept this acquittal, whatever that means. Perhaps Senate Republicans will tear up the verdict like Senate Republicans tore up the State of the Union address. So I would ask my distinguished colleagues across the aisle, is this really, really where you want to go ?
