Impeachment Vote Results Leave Half of America Stunned
The Senate voted not to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday according to Fox News:
"The Senate overwhelmingly acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him Wednesday afternoon following a brief trial, in a historic rejection of Democrats' claims that the president's Ukraine dealings and handling of congressional subpoenas merited his immediate removal from office," Fox News' Gregg Re reported.
"All Democratic senators supported convicting the president of abuse of power and obstruction of justice, including swing-vote moderate Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Doug Jones, D-Ala.
"The only party defection was on the abuse of power charge from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who declared hours before the final vote that Trump had engaged in as "destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine." Romney voted not guilty on the obstruction charge."
Trump's attorney, Jay Sekulow tweeted one-word moments after the verdict was handed down:
