Donald Trump is the third US president to be impeached and is now also the third president to be acquitted.

He was accused by Democrats of abusing his power of office by orchestrating a pressure campaign to get Ukraine to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

He was also accused of obstructing Cognress for refusing to participate in the impeachment inquiry.

Trump denied any wrongdoing and repeatedly called the impeachment a "hoax".
