In the sense that it was decided by Senators BEFORE the Senate ‘trial’ that he would NOT be convicted, Schulz has a point.

Nonetheless, he was, per the Constitution, indicted in the House of Representatives, and tried (that specific word in the Constitution) in the Senate which IIRC was overseen by Supreme Court Chief Justice Rehnquist.....he was acquitted when 2/3 of the Senators (those without benefit of testicles) failed to convict.
