In an interview on NBC News' "Meet the Press", Raskin called the impeachment trial a "dramatic success in historical terms", noting that it was the most bipartisan impeachment conviction vote in American history.

Wyoming's Liz Cheney, the third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, quickly endured an effort by conservatives to remove her from her leadership post.

The poll-conducted online February 13-14 in English and Spanish by ABC News/Ipsos and based on a nationally representative probability sample of 547 adults-shows that 58% of the USA public believes Trump should have been convicted for inciting the events of January 6 that left five people dead.

Burr has said he will not seek reelection in 2022.

"Richard Burr on behalf of the grassroots across the state and because I do truly feel that his vote was improper", said Lineberger.

The Senate on Saturday acquitted Trump by a margin of 57 to 43, 10 votes shy of the two-thirds majority required for conviction. The evidence is compelling that President Trump is guilty of inciting an insurrection against a coequal branch of government and that the charge rises to the level of high Crimes and Misdemeanors.


Patrick Toomey. North Carolina's Richard Burr is facing a censure vote Monday from his state party.

"The post-presidency impeachment proceeding was an unconstitutional theft of time and energy that did absolutely nothing to unify or help the American people", Mr Tabas said in a statement.

Republicans are turning en masse on the seven GOP senators who chose to convict Donald Trump during his second impeachment trial on Saturday. Senator Burr did not represent the will of the people and that is a shame'.

Fellow dissenter Republican senator Bill Cassidy was also censured by the GOP in his home state of Louisiana. It takes 67 votes to convict. But in a scathing speech on the Senate floor just after the vote, McConnell said Trump was "practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day" while also arguing that he believed the trial was unconstitutional because Trump was no longer in office.

While 43 Republican senators chose to support the former President, seven ultimately agreed that Trump violated his oath of office by stirring MAGA fans into a frenzy before they took part in the siege of the Capitol.
