The US Senate has acquitted Donald Trump of two articles of impeachment. Mitt Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict the president of abuse of power.

President Donald Trump was acquitted on Wednesday in his US Senate impeachment trial, saved by fellow Republicans who rallied to protect him nine months before he asks voters in a deeply divided America to give him a second White House term.

The businessman-turned-politician, 73, survived only the third presidential impeachment trial in US history - just like the two other impeached presidents - in his turbulent presidency's darkest chapter.Mr Trump was acquitted largely along party lines on two articles of impeachment approved by the Democratic-led House of Representatives on 18 December, with the votes falling far short of the two-thirds majority required in the 100-seat Senate to remove him under the US Constitution.

The Senate voted 52-48 to acquit him of abuse of power stemming from his request that Ukraine investigates political rival Joe Biden, a contender for the Democratic nomination to face Mr Trump in the 3 November election.No Democrat voted to acquit. The Senate then voted 53-47 to acquit him of obstruction of Congress by blocking witnesses and documents sought by the House.

A conviction on either count would have elevated Vice President Mike Pence, another Republican, into the presidency.No Democrat voted to acquit.

And a new precedent for president has been set.


Then he chickened out and voted to acquit for the obstruction allegation.

And the senate has given the wankmaggot the keys to do whatever he likes. A sad day indeed - good luck America.

Trial? Really?

Australia calling. Can we have our kangaroo back now, thanks.
