Capstone Forex Trading News:Capstone Forex Trading Information: On Wednesday (February 5), the U.S. Senate voted to veto two impeachment clauses accusing President Trump of abusing his authority and impeding Congress. Trump is not convicted, which means he will not be fired . Trump became the third president in American history to be acquitted by the Senate and stay in office.
48 48 senators, including a Republican, voted Trump abusive, while 52 Republicans voted innocent.
Trump has also been charged with obstructing Congress, 53 Republicans believe he is not guilty, and the remaining 47 senators have voted to convict him.
The innocence verdict is the final step in a two-week trial, with House Democrats arguing that Trump is a threat to the country and Senate Republicans firmly support Trump.
Earlier in the day, Senator Mitt Romney severely condemned the president's actions in the Senate. He broke with the Republican Party and voted for Trump's abuse of power.
On December 18, the Democratic-led House of Representatives voted to pass two terms to impeach Trump: abuse of power and obstruction to Congress.
Trump has been accused of abusing his authority to force Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden and his son, withholding nearly $ 400 million in military aid allocated by Congress.
Democrats say Trump tried to cheat in the 2020 election, and he forced a foreign ally to smear his potential political opponents with the taint of a criminal investigation. They also argued that Trump's refusal to submit any documents needed in the House investigation and pressure on potential witnesses to keep them from obeying hindered Congress's actions.
However, the result of the Senate trial was almost certain from day one. Therefore, the suspense became a vote on whether to accept additional evidence in the final stage of the trial, which only required 51 votes to pass.
