After being impeached by the House of Representatives, the decision to remove Donald Trump from office was up to the Senate and on Wednesday, February 5, the Senate finally reached a verdict. All charges against Donald Trump on whether he would be impeached or not were officially dropped.
After many trials, the House of Representatives, who is controlled by the Democrats, felt as if they had enough evidence to vote on Trump’s impeachment and on December 18, the decision had been made and Trump was officially impeached by the House.
Being impeached by the House didn’t mean that he was no longer president. The House now had to pass on that decision to the Senate, who is controlled by Republicans. The House did not immediately send the articles of impeachment to the Senate because according to Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, the public had the right to know how the trial will take place and how Trump will be prosecuted.
After weeks of delay, Trump’s impeachment trial was set and Pelosi’s efforts had failed. Donald Trump will remain president at least until the next presidential election.
