Senators: "I do."

The United States Senate has acquitted President Donald Trump of all charges in his impeachment trial about putting pressure on Ukraine in exchange for military aid.

Only one Republican Senator, Mitt Romney voted alongside Democrats to convict Trump for abuse of power.

The White House said it was a full vindication and exoneration but the Democrats warn more investigations on Trump are ahead.
