United States: Senate acquits Donald Trump of impeachment charges

Author of the content

Press review of the week from 8 to 14 February

The data is drawn and the verdict establishes his acquittal.

After a five-day trial, Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate, with 57 votes in favor and 43 against. The 67 votes needed to condemn the former US president "for inciting insurrection" have not been reached after the attack on Congress on January 6.

50 Democratic and 7 Republican senators voted in favor of the sentence, a historic event that had never happened in previous impeachment trials that senators voted in favor of the conviction of a former president.

A trial with the result already taken for granted given the clarifications in recent days by the republican senators who had rejected the accusation's thesis.

The position claimed by Donald Trump's lawyers and his supporters was based on the thesis that impeachment is an institution that serves to remove an incumbent public official, an unconstitutional issue given Trump's current position.

Exclusive images were shown by the prosecution during the third day in the Senate, shocking images of what happened on January 6 in Congress that blames former President Donald Trump as the instigator of the protest. Unjustified behavior by the members of the Grand Old Party themselves.

"Fighting like in hell”These are the words that Trump used to warm up the crowd of supporters during the rally held in front of the Capitol.

A harsh attack on democracy unpunished by the political calculation of the Republicans who still believe the figure of Trump is too strong and popular. His condemnation would have been an alignment against his supporters and a dangerous exposure to possible revenge.
