US Senate: Donald Trump Wins Impeachment Trial

Former US President, Donald Trump acquitted on a charge of “incitement of insurrection” related to the US Capitol attack by a mob on January six.

At this moment, the former President won the impeachment trial at the Senate.

The Senate trial lasted for five days, and all the lawmakers divided along party lines with 57 lawmakers voting to convict and 43 votings to acquit the former President.

While about seven Republican senators joined the Democrats to vote for Trump’s conviction.

Meanwhile, Trump is the first President to pass through impeachment trial twice, report says.

The first one was last year and ended in an acquittal of charges that he tried to pressure Ukraine to investigate, Joe Biden.

“This trial wasn’t about choosing country over party, even not that, this was about choosing country over Donald Trump, and 43 Republican members chose Trump. They chose Trump,” Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer said following the vote.
