Former US President Donald Trump has been acquitted in impeachment for the crime of incitement to insurrection in the assault on the Capitol on January 6 in a tight vote in the United States Senate.

Specifically, 57 senators, including seven Republicans, have voted in favor of condemning Trump, while 43 have voted against it, far from the 67 votes needed, since a two-thirds majority is required.

The seven Republicans who voted in favor of the verdict are Bill Cassidy (Louisiana), Susan Collins (Maine), Richard Burr (Virginia), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Mitt Romney (Utah), Ben Sasse (Nebraska) and Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania).
