(FILES) In this file photo taken on January 6, 2021, supporters of US President Donald Trump protest outside the US Capitol in Washington, DC. A day after the Senate acquitted Donald Trump in a historic second impeachment trial, America was weighing how long a shadow the former president, even with a tarnished legacy, will continue to cast -- over his party, and over the country. As much of the world watched, the Senate on February 13, 2021 voted 57-43 to convict Trump of inciting the January 6 assault on the US Capitol. It was a stinging rebuke, with seven Republicans joining all Democrats in the most bipartisan impeachment vote ever, but it fell short of the 67 votes needed for conviction.
