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

IJR

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.
