What does the acquittal of US President Donald Trump actually mean? Most people think of guilt or innocence as being a yes/no question, not a 48/52 question. It’s all a bit confusing.

Now it seems that the concept ‘there’s no smoke without fire’ could be rewritten as ‘there’s no smoke without mirrors’. We want honest politicians.
