Senators Vote to Acquit Trump in Second Impeachment Trial

President Donald Trump was acquitted in his Senate impeachment trial Saturday as the vast majority of Republicans held together against a charge that he incited the Capitol riot of January 6. The vote came after another contentious day where Democratic managers prevailed on a vote to allow witness testimony. They wanted to hear from GOP Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, who described what Rep. Kevin McCarthy told her the day of the riot. She said McCarthy told her that Trump told him as the riot was unfolding: 'Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are,' she says Trump told McCarthy.' Nevertheless, both sides agreed to accept a statement as a stipulation and avoid calling witnesses
