The US Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump on Saturday for inciting the January 6 riots at the Capitol.
After four days of impeachment, the 100 Senates resolved to impeach Trump with 57-43 votes. That’s 10 votes less than two-thirds of the majority required for conviction.
Trump was guilty of inciting a riot over the deadly assault of the US Capitol on January 6 by his supporters.
Despite seven Republican senators voting in favor of Trump’s impeachment, Democrats with 50 members in the Senate have two-thirds or 67 votes needed to impeach the former president. I couldn’t get it.
Trump is the first president to be impeached twice and the first president to face impeachment after his resignation.
Seven Republican senators, Bill Cassidy, Richard Burr, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey, voted for the impeachment.
“The president has never experienced such a thing,” Mr. Trump said shortly after his acquittal.
“A US political party slandered the rule of law, slandered law enforcement agencies, cheered on mobs, excused riots, turned justice into a tool of political revenge, and was given a free pass to persecute. A sad commentary on the times. Blacklist, cancel, and suppress all those and perspectives who oppose it. “
“I have always been, and will continue to be, the unwavering rule of law, law enforcement heroes, and the right of Americans to have peaceful and honorable discussions of the day’s problems without malice or hatred. “He said.
He said this was yet another stage of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country.
“The president has never experienced such a thing,” Trump said. Opposition has nearly 75 million incumbent presidents who voted for us just a few months ago. I can’t forget it. “
The Washington Post said the results emphasized Trump’s continued grip on most Republicans, even though the party lost control of both the White House and Congress during his turbulent tenure. It was.
“First of all, I would like to thank the dedicated lawyers and other teams for their tireless efforts to uphold justice and defend the truth. All that proudly upheld the Constitution that we all respect. I am deeply grateful to the US Senators and the House of Representatives. The sacred legal principles at the heart of our country. “
