After a 5-day historic trial, former US President Donald Trump was acquitted of all charges.
Two-thirds of the votes, ie 50 Democrats and 17 Republicans, were needed for Trump to be convicted.
The trial was presided over by the oldest Democratic senator, Patrick Leahy.
As a reminder, he was tried for the deadly attack on Capitol Hill on January 6 this year, in which five people lost their lives.
By “inciting violence” against the US government, as the Democrats claimed, Trump committed serious crimes and misdemeanors – which is the basis for revocation under the US Constitution.
During the trial, prosecutors in front of the Democratic Party showed unprecedented security camera footage of the attack on the Capitol. With this, they wanted to demonstrate the extent of the violence that took place and how much of a threat the hooligans posed to everyone who was in the Capitol at the time.
