The hearing in the Senate of Pres. Donald Trump of America adjourned Wednesday night after being acquitted on both articles after being indicted.
The vote on the first article, that he abused his power, was 52 against 48 – with Republican Mitt Romney casting a vote of guilty along with Democrats.
In the second article, obstruction of justice, the vote was 53 against 47 – all Democrats voted to blame and all Republicans voted for Trump to be found not guilty.
