ACQUITTED: Senate Votes To Acquit Trump On Abuse Of Power Charge In Impeachment Trial

2

The Senate has voted to acquit President Donald Trump on the charge of abuse of power in his impeachment trial.

Forty-eight senators, including one Republican, voted to convict Trump on abuse of power, while 52, all Republicans, voted to acquit him.

The president was also impeached on the charge of obstruction of Congress. Senators were set to vote on that count after the abuse of power vote.

The acquittal vote was the final step in a two-week trial marked by impassioned arguments from House Democrats that Trump was a danger to the nation, and stalwart support from Senate Republicans for a president who maintains a political stranglehold on their party.

Sen. Mitt Romney, who delivered a searing condemnation of the president’s actions earlier in the day on the floor of the Senate, broke with his party to vote to convict Trump on the abuse of power count.

The Democrat-led House voted on Dec. 18 to impeach Trump on two articles: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Read more at CNBC.

  1. Baruch Hashem. This is very good news for Yidden the world over during this long and bitter galus. HKB”H has sent many good leaders who befriended us over the last few thousand years. President Trump is one of such leaders who is good and understanding towards us. This is not something to take for granted. We have to keep davening for President Trump to be matzliach.

  2. the DemocRATS are a FAILURE – they’re not interested in serving the American people.
    they’re only interested in VOIDING the 2016 election and INTERFERING in the 2020 election where the greatest PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL WIN “FOUR MORE YEARS”
