WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate has voted 57 guilty to 43 not guilty in the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Because the vote was not 2/3 of the Senate in favor of a guilty verdict, Trump was acquitted.

Seven Republican senators voted to convict Trump. This is the second time the Senate has acquitted Trump in an impeachment trial.

Indiana Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young, both Republicans, voted not guilty.
