Donald Trump Acquitted by Senate in Impeachment Trial, 7 Republicans Vote Guilty

Donald Trump‘s second impeachment trial has ended and the former President of the United States was acquitted by the U.S. Senate.

After the House voted to impeach Trump, the Senate had an impeachment trial and 67% of the senators needed to vote guilty in order for him to be declared guilty.

The final vote was 57 votes for guilty and 43 votes for not guilty. There is currently a 50-50 split among Democrats and Republicans in the senate, so this means that seven Republicans decided to vote guilty.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed the vote and said it was “un-American.”

“The former President inspired, directed, and propelled a mob to violently prevent the peaceful transfer of power, subvert the will of the people, and illegally keep that President in power,” he said just moments after the vote. “There is nothing, nothing more un-American than that. There is nothing, nothing more antithetical to our democracy… insulting to the generations of Americans patriots who gave their lives to defend our form of government.”
