Trump celebrates impeachment acquittal at White House

President Donald Trump, facing a bruising re-election campaign and possible further investigations in Congress, on Thursday called the Democrats who pursued his impeachment corrupt.

The remarks came a day after the Republican-controlled Senate acquitted him in his historic impeachment trial on charges brought by the Democratic-led House of Representatives.

On largely party-line votes, the Senate acquitted Trump on Wednesday of charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, keeping him in office.
