The U.S. Senate has voted to acquit former President Donald Trump of inciting insurrection during the January 6 Capitol riot.
The vote was 57-43 to acquit.
Seven Republicans voted to impeach the former president, but Democrats needed 17 Republicans to join them to convict Trump and hold a separate vote to bar him from running for office again.
These are the seven Republicans who voted to convict the former President:
- Richard Burr of North Carolina
- Bill Cassidy of Louisiana
- Susan Collins of Maine
- Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
- Mitt Romney of Utah
- Ben Sasse of Nebraska
- Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania
Democrats in the House of Representatives had voted to impeach Donald Trump in January, charging him with "incitement of insurrection."
