Donald Trump says after the end of the trial that there has been a “historic witch hunt”.
Former US President Donald Trump was released on Saturday night in a court case against him in the Senate.
In a statement he subsequently issued, Trump reiterated that the trial against him has been another phase in the “biggest witch hunt in the country’s history”.
He also says in the statement that he looks forward to “continuing the journey towards achieving American greatness”.
– Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement “to Make America Great Again” has only just begun, says Donald Trump in the statement.
– In the coming months I have a lot to share with you.
It is not clear whether Trump intends to continue playing an active role in politics. But he writes that he and his followers have a lot of work to do.
– We have a lot of work ahead of us, and soon we will sign up with a vision for a bright, radiant and boundless American future.
“There is nothing we can not achieve together,” Trump said in a statement.
At the trial, Trump was accused of inciting revolt when Congress was stormed by his supporters on January 6.
But the Democrats failed to gather the 67 votes needed to convict him.
57 members of the Senate voted to plead guilty, while 43 voted against.
All 50 Democratic members of the Senate answered “guilty” when asked at the oral vote.
Seven Republican senators voted against the party’s former president. It was Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse and Pat Toomey.
A two-thirds majority of the 100 members of the Senate is required to judge Trump. Therefore, the 50 Democrats needed 17 Republican votes.
This is the second time in a year that Trump has been acquitted in a state court case. He is the only president in U.S. history to stand trial twice.
The United States has only four times in the country’s history experienced a federal lawsuit against a president. Two of them have been against Donald Trump.
