Several moderate Republicans voted for a verdict of not guilty because they did not believe a president should be removed from office for political differences thus, as a result Johnson stayed in office until the end of his term in March 1869.
The Senate voted to acquit President Johnson of the charges against him; therefore he was not removed as president. The vote for acquittal passed by only one vote.
