During a roll-call vote in the Senate chambers on Wednesday afternoon, the senators found Trump not guilty of abuse of power by a vote of 52 to 48, and not guilty of obstruction of justice of Congress 53 to 4, ending a four-month effort by Democrats to remove Trump from office.

The Senate would have needed two-thirds support among members in order for President Trump to have been removed from office.

No president has ever been removed by the Senate.
