Trump’s historic second impeachment trial:

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Donald Trump was acquitted Saturday of inciting the horrific attack on the U.S. Capitol, concluding a historic impeachment trial that spared him the first-ever conviction of a current or former U.S. president but exposed the fragility of America’s democratic traditions and left a divided nation to come to terms with the violence sparked by his defeated presidency. The vote was 57-43, short of the two-thirds needed for conviction. Seven Republicans, including Sen. Pat Toomey, voted to convict. Here are the statements from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware senators. All found Trump guilty. RELATED: Senate Acquits Donald Trump In Second Impeachment Trial, Sen.

    The second political trial against former President Donald Trump continues this Thursday in the Senate with another day of arguments. Miami World / AP Trump faces a charge of “incitement to insurrection” in connection with the bloody attack on the Capitol in Washington, DC, on January 6, which left five people dead, several injured and dozens of arrests. The former president said he will not attend the hearings, rejecting a request from the trial administrators. On Wednesday, Democrats presented their arguments, which included videos of what happened on Capitol Hill. The House Democrats, who prosecuted the former president for “inciting insurrection” in his historic second impeachment trial, tried to make it as difficult for any senator to minimize the level of violence, and by extension Trump’s role in it, showing the assault on videos, from various camera angles. They spent the morning repeating Trump’s words to his supporters before the...
    WASHINGTON - The historic second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump started Tuesday in the U.S. Senate, with Trump accused of inciting insurrection a month ago by urging his supporters to confront lawmakers at the U.S. Capitol as they were certifying that Democrat Joe Biden had defeated Trump in the 2020 election. WATCH TRIAL LIVE The protest turned into mayhem, as about 800 supporters of Trump stormed past authorities into the Capitol, smashed doors and windows, ransacked some congressional offices and scuffled with police. Five people were left dead, including a Capitol Police officer whose death is under investigation as a homicide and a rioter shot by a police officer. The 100 senators – split evenly between Republican and Democratic caucuses -- hearing the impeachment case against the single-term president are in a unique position: many of them were witnesses themselves to the chaos of January 6 as they...
    The Senate Tuesday convened for the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump and will begin with a debate and vote on whether it is constitutional to try to convict an ex-president. The nine House impeachment managers entered the chamber after all 100 senators filed into the room and were seated for what is expected to be a trial lasting one week or more. The House voted to impeach Trump on Jan. 13 for inciting an insurrection that provoked the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. But Tuesday’s debate will center solely on whether the now-ex president can be convicted. The debate on the constitutionality of the trial is expected to last up to four hours, and the vote may mirror one taken last month in which 45 Republicans voted not to proceed to a trial on the grounds that Trump has now left office and as a...
