The deeply divided Senate on Wednesday acquitted President Donald J. Trump on the two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — brought by the House.
The vote brings to an end the impeachment saga that has consumed Washington since the House of Representatives launched its inquiry into the Trump’s actions last September.
In a 52-48 vote, the Senate found Trump not guilty of abusing his power of office. The Senate voted 53-47 to acquit the president on the charge of obstruction of Congress.
