Senate Votes To Acquit Trump

After months of proceedings, the impeachment process is finally at an end. The Senate found the president not guilty of abuse of power in a 52-48 vote this afternoon. The vote largely fell along party lines with Utah Republican Mitt Romney the only senator to cross the aisle.

Several moderate Democrats had been considered possible “not guilty” votes, but, in the end, senators like Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Doug Jones of Alabama voted in favor of removing the president.

On the second article of impeachment, Sen. Romney voted “not guilty.” The final vote for the obstruction charge was a straight party line vote of 53-47.
