WASHINGTON – POLITICS – United States President Donald J. Trump has been found not guilty in the Senate vote on both articles of impeachment.

United States Senators voted to find President Trump not guilty of the charge of abuse of power and on the Obstruction of Congress.

The Senate vote was 52-48 in the vote on abuse of power.  GOP Mass. Senator Mitt Romney, in the past a frequent target of President Trump is the only Republican Senator who broke party lines voting in favor of convicting President Trump.

That move makes Senator Romney the first Senator in American history who voted to convict a President from his same party during an impeachment trial.
