Seven Republicans also voted in favor of Trump’s conviction. According to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, there is no doubt that Trump is morally responsible for inciting violence. McConnel also said Trump shamefully violated his presidency. This influential Republican politician voted against his condemnation because he considered the trial of Trump unconstitutional after the end of his term.
Trump welcomed the result of the vote. He described the Democrats’ efforts after the liberating verdict as the next phase of the greatest witch hunt in US history. He told his followers that “our historical, patriotic, and wonderful Let’s Make America Great Again is just beginning” and that more details will be shared with them in the coming months.
Former Republican President Trump is the first in United States history to face a constitutional lawsuit twice. He is also the first to face impeachment after leaving office.
During the now-concluded trial, Democrats sought to prove that Trump’s incitement to the rigged election and the need to fight hard for his victory encouraged his followers to violence. During the attack of his supporters on the Capitol, five people died. With impeachment, Democrats wanted to prevent him from running for president again in 2024, which Trump is considering.
