US President Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate on the two impeachment cases filed against him.

KAMI learned that the Senate’s decision put an end to a four-month-long trial and inquiry.

As reported by the Daily Mail UK (authored by Emily Goodin), on the first article, the abuse of power charge, 52 senators voted not guilty and 48 found the US President guilty.

Meanwhile, on the obstruction of Congress charge, 53 senators voted not guilty and 47 said that he was guilty.

A two-thirds majority of the Senate is needed to impeach the President from his office.

In a tweet, Trump announced that he would be making a public statement about the United States’ “victory” on the “impeachment hoax.”

In a report by CNN (authored by Brian Stelter), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped the State of the Union speech of President Trump following the Senate’s decision.

"The manifesto of mistruths presented in page after page of the address tonight should be a call to action for everyone who expects truth from the President and policies worthy of his office and the American people," Pelosi explained.
