"While former President Donald Trump has been acquitted yet again in his second impeachment trial, seven Republican senators voted to convict him, making the trial outcome the most bipartisan in history.
A total of 57 senators ended up voting to convict Trump of inciting the insurrection that took place at the US Capitol on January 6, including seven Republicans: Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey.
Many of these lawmakers are considered moderates, and Toomey is one of several GOP lawmakers set to retire after this term. Their votes — along with all 50 of the Democratic caucus — were ultimately not enough to convict the former president; an impeachment conviction requires a two-thirds majority of the Senate, or 67 votes."
