Former US President Donald Trump has been acquitted on a charge of “incitement of insurrection” in relation to the January 6 riot at the United States Capitol.

After a five-day impeachment trial in the US Senate, the vote was largely split along party lines with 57 lawmakers voting to convict and 43 voting to acquit.

That fell short of the two-thirds Democrats needed to convict Trump, who is the only US president to ever be impeached twice while in office.

Democrats had laid out the graphic nature of the riot by pro-Trump supporters, who overran the Capitol building as Congress met to certify President Joe Biden’s election victory, while Trump’s legal team had rejected the accusations as “ludicrous”.
