Former US president’s ploy works, Donald Trump escapes prosecution. The impeachment proceedings against former US President Donald Trump were dropped due to a lack of the required two-thirds majority in the Senate and he was acquitted of all charges.
According to the international news agency, voting was held on the impeachment action against former US President Donald Trump for inciting his supporters and attacking the Congress building. Fifty-seven members, including seven Republican senators, voted in favor of Trump’s impeachment.
There were 43 votes against the impeachment proceedings of Donald Trump, although the majority supported the impeachment, but constitutionally the impeachment proceedings must have a two-thirds majority which was not achieved.
