The Senate votes as revealed by the Sky News halted the third presidential impeachment attempt in US history.

This has come amid President Trump`s seemingly efforts to initiate his early campaigns for re-election

The Senate house followed the same trend used by the House of Representatives in December 2019 by voting on each of impeachment separately.

To oust President Donald Trump, 67 senators are required to vote to convict him on a least one article of impeachment. however, the revealed votes were far much behind that.

We understand that Trump`s charge that he abused the office originated after President Trump requested a probe on his political rival Joe Biden who was one of the front runners for the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

On the other hand, the obstruction charged stemmed from allegations President Trump blocked witnesses and documents sought by the House of Representatives

Should he got convicted from either charge then Trump would have gone home and his deputy Mike Pence would have been the new President.

The white house had termed the impeachment process as a witch-hunt that denied the president his due rights and that it was established on a series of lies

As we have said all along, he is not guilty,” the White House said. “In what has now become a tradition for Democrats, this was yet another witch-hunt that deprived the president of his due process rights and was based on a series of lies,” it added.
