Democratic House impeachment managers, from left, Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., and Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Colo., walk out of the Senate Chamber in the Capitol Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021.

 

Over the weekend, the Senate voted to acquit former President Trump on the charge he incited an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol Building, capping a weeklong impeachment trial that was fueled by efforts to hold on to the White House after losing the election. Both Idaho Senators Mike Crapo and Jim Risch voted in favor of aquittal, joining the majority of their Republican colleagues.

 

Idaho Matters spoke with McKay Cunningham, a constitutional law professor at the University of Idaho.
