Impeachment trial over – Trump is not guilty

Impeachment trial over - Trump is not guilty

The Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump on two articles of impeachment Wednesday.
The senators found Trump not guilty of the first article of impeachment, abuse of power, by a 52-48 tally, and not guilty of the second article of impeachment, obstruction of Congress, by a 53-47 tally. A two-thirds majority of 67 senators would have been required to remove him.
Republican Mitt Romney became the only senator in history to vote to remove a president from his own party in an impeachment trial. Romney voted “guilty” on article 1, for abuse of power, and “not guilty” on article 2, for obstruction of Congress.
