Trump Acquitted on the Charge of Inciting an Insurrection in Second Impeachment Trial

The Senate voted to acquit Former President Donald Trump on the charge of inciting an insurrection on Saturday after falling short of the 67 votes needed to convict him.

The majority of senators voted to declare Trump guilty of the charge in a 57-43 vote, including seven Republicans.

Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) all sided with Democrats.

The failure to convict Trump makes him the only president to be impeached and acquitted twice in the history of the United States.

Trump released a statement following the results of the trial.

“This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago,” he said.

The former president added, “Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!” 

His acquittal comes a little more than one month after his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

Without a conviction, the door to run again in 2024 remains a possibility.

    1. Like lily white Americans Ronald? I think the REAL and original Americans are Native Americans. Not pseudo ones like you who support a fascist, dictator wanna be loser.

  1. Good now we can have riots and killings anytime. No problem for me
    Hope it’s not a problem for those weak men and women who acquitted orange 🍊 man after publicly denouncing his actions. They must really be desperate for those salaries they’ll continue to get going forward. Hysterical how this county works, I love watching it all play out

    1. Guess you didn’t read, it was a plot, a setup. The Democrats and all those involved should be brought up on charges in front of the Supreme Court.

    1. I would love to see your math on how President Who? could possibly win re-election, IF he feels bothered enough to even try to run again, Lying Paul The Emeffer.

      Since November, and especially since his attempted overturning of our election, about 200,000 American Fascists have left the party. In case you are not aware of this fact and how votes are counted, he needs MORE voters to back him, not less. 😉
