For the second time acquitted. Former US President Donald Trump escaped a guilty verdict on Saturday after a historic trial before the US Senate, which tried him for his role in the January 6 violence on Capitol Hill. “A victory”, for the former president of the United States, analysis at the microphone of Europe 1 Nicole Bacharan, political scientist specializing in American society. “But that does not mean that the rest will be easy, neither for him, nor for the Republican Party,” she predicts, estimating that the internal divisions of the Republican Party remain “always so sharp.”
“This is the first time that so many senators from the party of the accused president have voted against him”
Because if Trump was acquitted, no less than seven Republican senators voted with the 50 Democrats for the guilt of the former president of the United States. But it would have taken two-thirds of the upper house to reach a guilty verdict. “This is the first time that so many senators from the party of the accused president have voted against him,” said Nicole Bacharan, who assures that “the division of the Republican party between the party of Trump and the Republican party ‘in the old way’ remains as lively as ever “
Influential Republican leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell perfectly embodies the unease of some Republicans. As soon as the verdict was announced, the old politician let his bitterness burst out. “There is no doubt, no, that President Trump is, in fact and morally, responsible for having brought about the events of this day” of January 6, he asserted.
“Trump is freed from threat of ineligibility”
Considered not guilty by the Senate, could Donald Trump return to the political game and be a candidate for the White House in 2024? “He is freed from this threat of condemnation by the Senate, therefore freed from the threat of ineligibility which hung over his political destiny”, replies Nicole Bacharan on Europe 1. “This means that if he wants to continue a political life, if he wants to try to be re-elected, it is open. Now, that does not mean that the continuation will be simple. Neither for him, nor for the Republican Party “, concludes the political scientist.
I hope you are in health and well.
