douglas best known for his role in spartacus dies at the age of 103. u.s. president donald trump has been acquitted of both charges in his senate's impeachment trial bring an end to only the 3rd such trial in american history he was facing charges of abusing presidential powers and obstruction of congress when one republican broke ranks but it wasn't enough to see trump removed from office i did jocasta reports now from washington d.c. . it is therefore the outcome was as expected donald trump be and he is here by acquitted of the charges in said articles donald trump only the 3rd u.s. president to be impeached now also the 3rd u.s. president to be acquitted the white house called it full of vindication and
7:02 am
exoneration mr romney all but one republican senator voted not guilty on both articles of impeachment the lone defector was mitt romney the utah senator who in 2012 with the republican presidential nominee my faith is at the heart of who i am romney said in an emotional floor speech his conscience was more important than party loyalty he voted guilty an abuse of power what he did was not perfect no it was a flagrant assault on our electoral rights our national security and our fundamental values a few other republicans said they believe put trump did was wrong but didn't rise to remove all from office others blasted the democrats' efforts to remove the 45th us president i worry about the future of the presidency after what's happened here ladies and gentlemen you will come to regret this whole process all democrats voted
7:03 am
to convict on both charges they voice disappointment after his acquittal but did not admit defeat may yet face further investigation in the democrat controlled house and make no mistake about it the drip drip drip of evidence is going to keep coming out with each new revelation the message to the house of representatives don't do this again. now with the impeachment officially behind him from conspiring to for the november election whether all this has helped him or hurt him as a candidate is the big question castro al-jazeera washington. rich a good sign is a democratic strategist and a former legal advisor to the clinton white house steering the impeachment trial in 1909 he said romney's move to convict couldn't bulletin of the republican politicians in both cases i think there was an expectation after the house impeached that the senate was going to acquit was going to basically
7:04 am
not convict him the one difference though is that this was the 1st impeachment trial in the history of the united states were a senator of the party of the president who was impeached voted to convict him so mitt romney did a lot of things today by breaking this news but i think the words that he used and the sense of conviction and putting country above party is something that democrats whoever the presidential nominee is or frankly democrats going forward will seize upon to say we all don't have to fall prey to what. sort of force donald trump has over most republicans that people can rise above that so in that sense by the time of the clinton trial bill clinton had apologized for his behavior donald trump to this moment still says that his behavior was perfect and i think
7:05 am
the one answer is that when the impeachment trial was over in 1990 against bill clinton his popularity was in the 6065 percent range donald trump still in the forty's notwithstanding the fact that the economy is reasonably strong so i think the public ultimately soured 'd on his behavior and ultimately things are so partisan that there was a split you know virtually all republicans going with him and every single democrat against him. our correspondent kristen salumi has visited the swing state of pennsylvania which helped secure drums victory in 2016 many there say the strong economy could put him on a strong footing in the vendors election. here in small town america you didn't need a psychic to predict how democrats would react to the failed attempt to impeach the president i believe the impeachment was called for. and it's unfortunate that the witnesses were not allowed to testify but this is the city of new hope in
7:06 am
the swing state of pennsylvania. the republicans say that that you know impeaching trump would further divide the country but letting him get away with what he's gotten away with it divides the country also. and this sleepy town where the 1st president of the united states george washington camped with his army during the american revolution is tired of politics said i'm not a republican and i didn't vote for john but i'm just sitting here and just trying to get him out you know tell me something that you going to do for the country and even those who don't like the president aren't exactly pleased with the democrats have yet to see i think true leadership come and say ok well here's a here's an option that you can grab on to a lot of the people we spoke to here in new hope say they just don't know who to believe when it comes to politicians but with the wages rising and unemployment falling the strong economy could favor donald trump who won pennsylvania in 2016 by
7:07 am
less than a percentage point so i don't think. the charges that they put together were worth the impeaching a president. that had you vote for him yes i would and i voted for clinton the last time but some people who voted for trump the 1st time around say he needs to clean up his act but he keeps door to door right now as far as the economy and and trying to help our country vote form again. he needs to really stop some of the silliness that he does and concentrate on his job with so much drama in d.c. there seems little hope here of bringing the 2 sides together any time soon christine salumi al jazeera new hope pennsylvania. his m. a classic party has begun the process of selecting a presidential candidate's take on donald trump later this year party officials in
