The United States Senate did not condemn Donald Trump on charges of “inciting an insurrection”, despite seven Republican senators having voted against the former president. In the final vote, 57 senators voted in favor of Trump’s sentencing, including 50 from the Democratic Party and seven from the Republican Party.
The former president issued a statement in which he reacted to the acquittal, congratulating himself on having obtained “one more victory”. “Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement is only just beginning,” says the former White House tenant, thanking his lawyers.
On Thursday, Democratic prosecutors asked for Trump’s sentencing, showing video footage that sought to make a direct link between the former president’s public statements, denouncing electoral fraud in the November 3, 2020 presidential elections, and crowd action. that attacked the Capitol on January 6, causing five deaths.
On Friday, the defense arguments were presented by a team of three lawyers hired by Trump, who accused Democrats of wanting “political revenge”.
Using the same weapons as Democratic prosecutors, attorney Michael van der Veen released videos to demonstrate that Donald Trump regularly presented himself as the protector of “law and order” and that his opponents also sometimes made fiery speeches.
