A former US presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton has broken her silence after the senate acquitted Donald Trump of impeachment charges.
2016 US Democratic Party presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton has reacted after senate voted that Donald Trump is not guilty of impeachment charges brought against him.
She blamed Republican senators for the acquittal of American President Donald Trump by the country’s Senate.
On Wednesday, US Senators voted that he was not guilty of abuse of power. The vote was 52-48.
Lawmakers elected on the Democratic platform had wanted the President out of office and had impeached him at the House of Representatives.
Trump was accused to have obstructed Congress’ investigation of the affair and demanded that Ukraine dig up dirt on his political rival, Joe Biden, and as well withholding military aid as pressure.
Reacting to the trial outcome, Clinton blamed Republican senators for betraying their oath.
Taking to her Twitter page, Clinton said the United States is therefore entering a dangerous territory following Trump’s acquittal.
Clinton wrote: “As the president’s impeachment trial began, Republican senators pledged an oath to defend the Constitution.
“Today, 52 of them voted to betray that oath—and all of us.
“We’re entering dangerous territory for our democracy. It’ll take all of us working together to restore it.
“If you’re angry at the Republican senators who voted for a cover-up of the president’s corruption, join @IndivisibleTeam an @OnwardTogether partner to hold them accountable for enabling Donald Trump.”
