Senate acquits Donald Trump of ‘incitement of insurrection’

Former President Trump was acquitted by a Senate vote of 57-43 after a historic impeachment trial that accused him of inciting the violent storming of the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.

The vote fell well short of the two-thirds vote needed to convict Trump as seven Republicans joined all 50 Democrats in voting to convict the former president.

Barely a month since the deadly riot, closing arguments are set for the historic impeachment trial as senators arrive for a rare Saturday session, all under the watch of armed National Guard troops still guarding the iconic building.
