Trump acquitted. Again.

Not a surprise, still a disappointment.

🔗 NBC News: Trump acquitted in impeachment trial; 7 GOP Senators vote with Democrats to convict

Seven Republicans voted to convict Trump for allegedly inciting the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, when a mob of pro-Trump supporters tried to disrupt the electoral vote count formalizing Joe Biden’s election win before a joint session of Congress. That is by far the most bipartisan support for conviction in impeachment history. The final vote was 57 to 43, 10 short of the 67 votes needed to secure a conviction.
