Trump impeachment: No witnesses called as trial ends in acquittal | HIGHLIGHTS

12 min read

The final day of the impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump started with an unexpected request by lead House impeachment manager Jamie Raskin to call witnesses after it was originally thought the day would begin with closing arguments.

The resulting vote of 55-45 meant witnesses could be called, but after discussions between Democrats and Republicans, it was decided that a statement by Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera-Beutler regarding a phone call between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Trump during the Capitol riot would instead be entered as evidence instead of calling her as a witness.

After that call for witnesses fizzled, closing arguments continued by both House impeachment managers and Trump’s defence team until a final vote was made, acquitting Trump of the single charge of incitement of insurrection. Seven Republicans joined with Democrats to find him guilty 57-43, but it didn’t meet the 67-vote threshold needed to convict.
