WASHINGTON, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday that the Senate impeachment trial had been another phase of the "greatest witch hunt in the history of our country."

Trump made the comment in a statement after the Senate acquitted him in his second impeachment trial in 12 months, as his fellow Republicans shielded him from accountability for the deadly Jan. 6 assault by his supporters on the U.S. Capitol. (Reporting by Michael Martina Editing by Alistair Bell)
