“I don’t think the former President’s out of trouble just because he was acquitted:” DSU professor weighs in on second impeachment trial

DELAWARE- A Delaware State University Political Science Professor is weighing in on the acquittal of former President Donald Trump.

Saturday, Donald Trump was acquitted by the United States Senate in his second impeachment trial.

Senators voted 57-43 to acquit Trump of inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th this afternoon.

The DSU professor told us that the acquittal means that Trump is free to run again for president in the future.

He thinks one of the questions going forward is, what will Trump’s influence be not only in the republican party but also American politics?

“Even if it’s indirect I think the Senate’s roll was both a legal and a political one and I mean to say that I don’t think the former President’s out of trouble just because he was acquitted by the Senate, in this particular thing I think there’s some things moving forward,”

Dr. Hoff said there are still pending lawsuits and civil suits hanging over Trump’s head.

He added that we never had and an impeachment in U.S. history that went through the Senate that ended up in the removal of a President.
