The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump will continue in his post after he was tried by the Senate.
President Trump had been impeached by lower legislative chamber, the House of Representatives in December with the culmination today with his trial at the senate.
He had lost the vote on two counts, one of Obstruction of Congress and the other on Abuse of power.
He was however acquitted of both charges after the vote at the senate went his way leading to the rescinding of his impeachment and bringing an end to the proceedings.
See how the votes panned out at the senate:
“Senate vote on Obstruction of Congress:
– Guilty: 47
– Not Guilty: 53
Senate vote on Abuse of Power:
– Guilty: 48
– Not Guilty: 52”
