Despite his second impeachment by the United States House of Representatives, former President Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate on Saturday, paving way for him to contest political offices again.
Trump was impeached on charges bordering on alleged instigation of insurrection at the Capitol Hill building on January 6.
Fox news reports that while many senators, “found Trump guilty on Saturday in a 57-43 vote”, the number fell short of what was constitutionally required to impeach him.
The implication of a second impeachment is that such a person would be barred from holding a political office for life.
Meanwhile, the Democratic party lawmakers are saying they may bar the former president through “14th Amendment measure”.
