We know that throughout the trial, he really did stay away from commenting on the proceedings and essentially said his priority as it's been from Day one is getting the pandemic under control and trying to get the economy back on track. There were some pretty dramatic twists and turns in the impeachment trial over the weekend, did President Biden comment after it was all said, and done? You know, so he did. He did release a statement at the end of the proceedings, essentially striking a pretty solemn tone about what we saw Throughout the week he focused on the violence of the Capitol attack and said, This is a time we need to remember and move on and come together After this, you know this dark chapter. He did also make a point of highlighting that seven Republicans, of course, voted to convict former President Trump, which was of the most bipartisan impeachment conviction vote.
