Democrats blink on witnesses, Trump impeachment ends in acquittal for the 2nd time in a row

Trump attorney Michael T. van der Veen threatened to call over 300 witnesses starting with Nancy Pelosi and Kamal Harris. 

That was enough for the Dems to back up.   

Newsmax reports UPDATE: Former President Donald Trump was acquitted in his second impeachment trial Saturday.

Seven Repubicans joined all 50 Democrats to vote 57-43 in favor of guilt. That was 10 votes shy of the 67 votes needed for a guilty verdict.

The seven Republicans voting toe convict were: Sens. Mitt Romney, R-Utah; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska.; Ben Sasse, R-Neb.; Bill Cassidy, R-La.; Richard Burr, R-N.C.; and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.
