Donald Trump has been acquitted of inciting a riot at the US Capitol which left five people dead.
He is the only former of serving president to have been impeached twice.
Following the "not guilty" verdict, Mr Trump issued a statement lambasting the "greatest witch hunt in history", adding that his movement "has only just begun".
Read his statement in full:
"I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth.
"My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution and we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.
"Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard of our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.
"It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honourably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.
"This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.
"I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have bravely supported these important principles in these very difficult and challenging times.
"Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make American Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for our people. There has never been anything like it!
"We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.
"Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
"We remain one People, one family, and one glorious nation under God, and it's out responsibility to preserve this magnificent inheritance for our children and for generations of Americans to come.
"May God bless you all, and may God forever bless the United States of America."
