WATCH: Trump is acquitted of the 1st article of impeachment

The U.S. Senate voted Wednesday to acquit President Donald Trump on the first article of impeachment–abuse of power.

The 52-48 vote in favor of declaring Trump “not guilty” broke almost entirely along party lines. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who voted to convict Trump, was the only senator to cross party lines.

The Senate voted 53-47 along party lines to acquit the president on the second article of impeachment—obstruction of Congress.
