Louisiana Republican Who Voted to Convict Trump Blasted by His States GOP
Louisiana Republicans condemned the vote of Louisiana GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy, who joined Senate Democrats on Saturday in voting to convict former President Donald Trump of the article of impeachment against him.
Saturdays Senate vote fell well short of the 67-vote majority needed to convict the former president on the House-passed article of impeachment that accused Trump of inciting insurrection through his words and actions of the day of the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion.
Six other Republicans joined Cassidy in voting to convict Trump in the 57-43 tally: Richard Burr of North Carolina, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.
