Ex-president two U.S, Donald Trump was acquitted by the American Senate in his second trial of impeachment, carried out this Saturday, 13. By 57 votes in favor of the conviction and 43 against, the former US agent got rid of the accusation of inciting the invasion of the Capitol, earlier this year, on January 6 – the incident became known as one of the main attacks on democracy in the country. For Trump’s sentencing, 67 of the House’s 100 possible votes would be needed.

Thus, Trump becomes the first president of the United States to get rid of two impeachment processes, one of which ended with the Republican already out of office. Last week, he was also acquitted, on charges by the opposition of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. At the time, he was not penalized for having only 52 votes in favor of the conviction. It is worth remembering that the American Senate is currently divided with Republican senators and another 50 from the Democratic Party. Thus, Trumpism remains alive. That’s because a conviction could prevent Trump from running for federal office, leaving him out of a new race for the White House. With the acquittal, Trump could run in the next presidential election.

Earlier, after having approved the summons of witnesses in the impeachment process of the former president Donald Trump, Democratic deputies reversed the decision after an agreement with the defense of the former president. The two parties agreed that a statement published last night by Republican Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, a moderate line and who was one of 10 Republican congressmen who voted in the House of Representatives in favor of impeachment, would be admitted as evidence. Thus, absolution was already expected.
