  • former President Donald Trump stands acquitted in the Senate on charges of inciting a deadly attack on the U.

  • S Capitol.

  • The final tally fell short of the 67 votes needed to convict.

  • But with 57 votes in favor of a conviction versus 43 against, the outcome reflected an unprecedented condemnation of a president.

  • It was the most bipartisan impeachment vote in the history of our republic.

  • Colorado Democratic representative Jonah Goose, one of the House managers who prosecuted the case against Trump, on Sunday praised the seven Republican senators who joined with Democrats in voting to convict 57 senators, including seven Republicans.

  • That you mentioned chose country over party and reached the same conclusion we did, which was that the president incited insurrection and we shouldn't lose sight of that.

  • Even some Republicans who voted Saturday to acquit, such as minority leader Mitch McConnell, harshly condemned Trump for his role in the riot.

  • There's no question none that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day, no question about it, McConnell said.

  • His vote hinged on a technicality, his belief that a former president could not be impeached.

  • Trump's legal team, including attorney Michael Vander Veen, hailed their victory.

  • We want not guilty on a Trump spokesperson, read a statement from the former president.

  • This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country.

  • But the end of the child does not mean the end of Trump's potential legal jeopardy.

  • A prosecutor in Georgia has launched a criminal probe into the former president's efforts to overturn that state's election.

  • On Saturday, the Wall Street Journal reported, the Manhattan prosecutor is looking into loans to trump properties.

  • Mitch McConnell even suggested Trump may still face criminal liability unless the statute of limitations is Iran.

  • Still liable for everything you did while he's in office.

  • Didn't get away with anything?

  • Yeah, yeah.
