The US Senate has acquitted President Donald Trump on both impeachment charges against him.

The first vote on abuse of power was defeated 52-to 48.

The second on obstruction of justice went down to defeat 53-to 47.

US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts made the announcements.

The vote against impeachment was never in doubt, since the Republicans have control of the Senate.
