Trump was acquitted on both charges on Wednesday, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, ending the impeachment trial.

Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton responded to President Donald Trump's acquittal on Wednesday by accusing the senators who cleared the president of "betraying their oath to the Constitution."

Clinton warned that Trump's vindication had put America on the path to “entering dangerous territory.”

“As the president’s impeachment trial began, Republican senators pledged an oath to defend the Constitution,” Clinton wrote.

“Today, 52 of them voted to betray that oath—and all of us,” she continued.

“We’re entering dangerous territory for our democracy. It’ll take all of us working together to restore it.”

Trump was acquitted on both charges on Wednesday, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, ending the impeachment trial.

“It is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be, and he is hereby, acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts announced.

Last month, Clinton blasted arguments for Trump's acquittal, arguing that "in America, no one is above the law."

Clinton took to Twitter to blast Trump by comparing him to disgraced former President Richard Nixon, who resigned before he could be impeached:

“Richard Nixon once made this argument: "When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal."

"He was forced to resign in disgrace," Hillary added.

"In America, no one is above the law.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi faced backlash after tearing up President Donald Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday.

In January, Clinton admitted she couldn't help but feel “the urge” to run against Trump again.

The twice-failed presidential candidate told Variety magazine at the Sundance Film Festival that the 2016 election was an 'odd outcome.'

"I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome," Clinton said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi faced backlash after tearing up President Donald Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Pelosi ripped up the copy of the address at the conclusion of Trump's speech as lawmakers applauded.

The House Speaker also broke protocol by introducing Trump into the House chamber as the “The President of the United States.”

But the correct protocol language would have been:

“I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States.”
