Biden: Although the Senate did not condemn Trump, the substance of the indictment is indisputable – World – News

US President Joe Biden, February 12, 2021.

US President Joe Biden said on Saturday that despite the Senate acquitting his White House predecessor Donald Trump from impeachment, the charges against him are indisputable. The AFP agency informed about it.

“Although the final vote did not lead to a condemnation, the nature of the indictment is indisputable,” Biden said, adding that the January 6 attack on the Capitol was “a sad chapter in our history reminding us that democracy is fragile, that it must always be protected and that we must always be vigilant. “

The US Senate on Saturday released Trump in a 57:43 vote in the process of a constitutional lawsuit in connection with the attack of his supporters on the Capitol building in early January. The Trumps were blamed for inciting the uprising, which led to violent clashes in the Chapter and resulted in the loss of five lives.

A two-thirds majority was required in the 100-member Senate to find an ex-president guilty. Seven members of his Republican Party, including Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse and Pat Toomey, also voted in favor of Trump. This is historically the highest number of senators who voted against the president on their own side during the impeachment process.

Trump welcomed the result of the vote and thanked his lawyers in both chambers of Congress, who “stood proudly at the constitution.” He also called the process a “witch hunt” and declared that his patriotic movement MAGA (“Make America Great Again!”) Had just begun.
