Trump ally and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham told Fox News that Burr's vote basically assured that if Lara were to launch a bid, she would earn the Republican nomination in the state.

However, Johnson's message has been overshadowed by the newly-elected US President Joe Biden's decreasing faith in American democracy.

Trump was ultimately acquitted 57- 43, with Democrats falling 10 votes short of the 67 needed to convict the former President of inciting insurrection before the January 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol.

The North Carolina GOP voted Monday to formally censure Burr.

Burr has previously said he would not run again in 2022, and as Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, he had done little to push back against allegations of Russian collusion against Trump.

"I am voting yes because he failed his state and his constituents by voting to convict FORMER President Trump in what was an unconstitutional trial".

Former US President Donald Trump was on Saturday acquitted on charges of inciting the 6 January assault on the US Capitol, after a majority of Republican senators refused to vote in favour of punishing Trump and instead voted 'not guilty, ' in the second impeachment trial in his four years of office.

"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", Burr stated Saturday. "A trial that even he said was unconstitutional", she said in an email.

Former US president Donald Trump, fresh from his impeachment acquittal, has hinted he might return to public life to rally for the Republican Party sooner than you might think. "Senator Burr did NOT vote the will of the people and should be held accountable".

Some Utah Republicans are hoping to censure Sen. "It is because I still believe, as you used to, that politics isn't about the weird worship of one dude", Senator Sasse said in a video addressed to the party leadership in Nebraska.

"Our historic, patriotic and handsome movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun", Trump said in a statement issued just moments after the Senate vote.

"The oath that I took to the constitution compelled me to vote for impeachment and it doesn't bend to partisanship", Ms Cheney told "Fox News Sunday".
