President Donald Trump waited to welcome Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido on Wednesday before their meeting and before the Senate vote to acquit Trump in his impeachment trial.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump won impeachment acquittal Wednesday in the U.S. Senate, bringing to a close only the third presidential trial in American history with votes that split the country, tested civic norms and fed the tumultuous 2020 race for the White House.

With Chief Justice John Roberts presiding, senators sworn to do "impartial justice" stood and stated their votes for the roll call - "guilty" or "not guilty" - in a swift tally almost exclusively along party lines. Trump, the chief justice then declared, shall "be, and is hereby, acquitted of the charges."
