Despite the best efforts of his lawyers to throw the trial, President Donald Trump was acquitted by the U.S. Senate today.
The second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump fizzled to a predictable close on Saturday as senators voted largely along party lines to acquit the U.S. president of the charge against him, ending a historic chapter in American political history.
Trump was acquitted on the charge—”incitement of insurrection”—by a vote of 57-43, failing to achieve the necessary threshold of 67 votes.
That’s good news. Now restore the office already, please….
