Trump acquitted, again

Sad, but true. Donald Trump has been acquitted in his second impeachment trial.

The vote was 57-43, so seven Republican senators also votes with the Democrats to convict Trump of inciting the January 6th riots in Washingon DC. But it was still along way from the 67 (a two-thirds super-majority) needed for a conviction, which also means that Trump wasn't able to be banned from standing for president in the future.

Shout out to Republican Senators Richard Burr (North Carolina), Bill Cassidy (Louisiana), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Ben Sasse, (Nebraska) Mitt Romney (Utah) and Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania) for voting with their consciences. Shame on all the others for not having the guts or the gumption to do the right thing.
