The US Senate acquitted former Pres. Donald Trump last February 14 of the charge incitement of insurrection which resulted in a riot at the US Capitol on January 6. Voting 57-43 in favor of the conviction, the Senate failed to convict Trump because the vote fell short of the two-thirds majority (67 votes). The Senate first acquitted Trump of other charges in January 2020.
In response, the US Congress announced its plan to form a commission to investigate pro-Trump groups and their Republican supporters who participated in the riot. Initial reports indicate that one out of five rioters are veterans or active members of the US military.
