The Senate voted to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him Wednesday afternoon.

According to Fox News, all Democratic senators voted to convict the president of abuse of power and obstruction of justice. The only Republican to vote against Trump was Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who said that Trump had engaged in as “destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine.” Romney voted not guilty on the obstruction charge.

The final vote counts were: 52-48 against conviction on the abuse of power charge and 53-47 on the obstruction charge.
