The U.S. Senate on Saturday acquitted former President Donald Trump on an impeachment charge of inciting an insurrection.

Republican Party officials representing Kansas in the Electoral College quickly and quietly cast the state's six votes for President Donald Trump during a drama-free meeting on Monday that belied weeks of turmoil stoked by Trump and his allies as they tried to overturn his election loss.

The Kansas GOP chairman said he wouldn't declare the election finally over with states' electors casting their ballots, only days after the state's Republican attorney general declared that it was time to move on following a key U.S. Supreme Court defeat for Trump and his allies.
