Mr. Biden said that the Jan. 6 incidents and the results of the Trump impeachment trial remind us that “Democracy is fragile“According to a statement Mr. Biden released a few hours after the Senate voted to acquit Trump. Mr. Biden also called on the American people to stay vigilant and ensure that democracy is always protected.

This sad chapter in our history is reminding us that democracy is fragile. That [nền dân chủ] must be protected at all times. That we must be more vigilant. That violence and extremism have no place in America. And that each of us as Americans, especially as leaders, has a duty and responsibility to defend the truth and reject lies.”Mr. Biden said.

The results of the vote showed that 57 Senators (TNS) voted to convict Mr. Trump, while 43 TNS objected. The Senate needs at least 67 votes to convict former President Trump. With the above results, the chairman had to declare Mr. Trump acquitted.

Mr. Biden said that while the final vote did not lead to the conviction of Trump, he believes “accusations are not debatable“.

Even those who have opposed the charges, like Senate Minority Leader McConnell, believe [ông] Donald Trump ‘guilty of disgraceful distraction’ and ‘a practical and moral responsibility for inciting’ violence to occur at the Capitol”Mr. Biden said.

Mr. McConnell voted against the charges against Mr. Trump, but he still criticized the former president. The Senate Minority Leader said he felt that Mr. Trump “have a moral responsibility“Against the Capitol breach on Jan. 6. The Kentucky state senator said he voted “no charges“Mr. Trump because he thinks a former president cannot be tried in the Senate.

Democrats, meanwhile, have accused many Republicans of intending to acquit Trump even before the trial began.

They will obviously vote [trắng án] whatever evidence is presented“Democratic Party TNS Chris Van Hollen told reporters after the vote.

The House of Representatives impeached Mr. Trump on Jan. 13 while he was still in office with a single impeachment clause on “incite rebellion“, Accusing him of being behind the hacking of the Capitol a week earlier.

Trump’s lawyers argued the trial was unconstitutional because the former President is now a commoner and accused Democrats of selectively showing edited videos, ignoring important evidence, such as Mr. Trump told supporters on Jan. 6 to go to the Capitol “peacefully and patriotically“.

The Republican Senators pointed out that if the words like “fight to die“Constitutes a crime of agitation,”all political candidates in America are charged with agitation“.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Texas) said on Thursday (February 11): “I assure you, all 100 TNS in this institute have ever stood on a political podium and said we need to ‘fight and die.“”.

All 43 TNS acquitted Mr Trump as Republicans, while all Democrats voted to convict him. Seven Republicans have joined Democrats in an attempt to accuse the former President. These seven Republicans include: Richard Burr, Susan Collins, Bill Cassidy, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Lisa Murkowski, and Pat Toomey.

Former President Trump also immediately issued a personal statement after the Senate voted to acquit him. Mr. Trump thanked the lawyers, lawmakers who supported him, and also condemned Democrats’ conduct in this impeachment and over the past few years and called it an attack on democracy. .

First of all, I want to thank my dedicated team of lawyers and others for working tirelessly to uphold justice and protect truth. I also extend my deepest thanks to the US Senators and Members of Congress, who have always stood out proudly. [bảo vệ] The constitution that we all respect, as well as the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country”Mr. Trump wrote.

This is indeed a sad illustration of our time when a political party in the United States was allowed to freely defame the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheered the crowd. chaos, defending riots and turning justice into a tool of political vengeance and persecution; blacklist, cancel and block all individuals and views they disapprove of”Mr. Trump wrote in the statement.

The 45th President of the United States also swore “will always be a fight for the steadfast rule of law, for our law enforcement heroes, and for the right of Americans to debate peacefully and respect on current affairs without being treated malice and hatred“.
