Seven Republican senators joined with Democrats in voting to convict former President Donald Trump at the conclusion of his second impeachment trial.

Trump has been acquitted of inciting an insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6. The GOP defections nevertheless stand as a sharp rebuke of the former President.

The Republicans who voted for conviction were:

  • Richard Burr of North Carolina

  • Bill Cassidy of Louisiana

  • Susan Collins of Maine

  • Lisa Murkowski of Alaska

  • Mitt Romney of Utah

  • Ben Sasse of Nebraska

  • Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

The vote was 43 not guilty to 57 guilty -- short of the 67 guilty votes needed to convict Trump.
