The United States Senate on Saturday acquitted former President Donald Trump in his historic second impeachment trial.
Trump, who was accused of inciting the deadly January 6 riot at the US Capitol, was acquitted in a 57-43 vote on Saturday.
Seven Republicans joined 50 Democrats to find the former President guilty.
But they fell short of the 67 votes needed to convict him and impeach Trump.
Trump, who has been secluded in his Florida club since leaving office on January 20, issued a statement in which he expressed thanks for the verdict, and called the proceedings “yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country.”
