Senate Acquits Trump on Both Articles of Impeachment

VOTING CONCLUDED, 4:33 P.M.

by Sharon Rondeau

The U.S. Constitution gave the Senate the “sole power” to try impeachments of “civil officers” of the federal government

(Feb. 5, 2020) — At 4:05 p.m. Wednesday, the U.S. Senate began a roll-call vote on the first presidential Article of Impeachment, “abuse of power,” leveled by the U.S. House of Representatives on December 18.  Each Senator was required to stand when his or her name was called and state “guilty” or “not guilty.”

The final tally, read by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts as presiding officer, was 52 “not guilty” and 48 “guilty,” thereby acquitting President Trump on the count of “abuse of power.”

The first vote was strictly on party lines with the exception of Republican Mitt Romney, who voted “guilty.”   Independents Angus King of Maine and Bernie Sanders of Vermont voting with the Democrats.

The vote on the second Article, “obstruction of Congress,” was slightly different as a result of Romney voting “not guilty.”

Roberts pronounced Trump “acquitted” of both charges at 4:33 p.m. EST.

At 4:34, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave closing remarks which included thanking Roberts for presiding over the 2+-long week trial.
