Donald Trump Found Not Guilty at impeachment trail.

Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate on Saturday in an impeachment trial for his role on the attack on the US Capitol.

A verdict that underscores the sway America’s 45th president still holds over the Republican party even after leaving office.

Although the final vote came in as 57 “guilty” and 43 “not guilty”, the Democrats did not reach the two-thirds majority they needed to secure a conviction.

Trump was the first US president to be impeached twice and is now the first president to be twice acquitted.

If convicted, he could have been barred from holding office in the future, but this decision now paves the way should Trump want to run again for another tilt at the White House in 2024.
