Trump has the Republican Party in his iron grip

The US president has been acquitted by the Senate in the fastest impeachment ever – in a trial with no witnesses.

There was never any doubt that he would be let off, but Donald Trump can no longer say that this impeachment was entirely partisan.

Moment Trump is a acquitted

Senator Mitt Romney became the lone Republican voice willing to say what surely many more were thinking: that Mr Trump abused his power to the extent that he should be removed from office.

Publicly, Romney’s fellow Republicans said this was a baseless political witch-hunt, with some daring to go as far as suggesting Mr Trump’s behaviour was “inappropriate” but ultimately did not rise to the level of impeachment.

There is no doubt that the Democrats presented a convincing case that Mr Trump used crucial military aid and a coveted White House meeting to bully Ukraine into publicly slinging mud at his political rival Joe Biden.
