How To Impeach A US President

So things aren’t looking too good for President Donald Trump, finally. It hasn’t taken too long for his messy practices to put Americans at significant risk. Trump is learning he cannot run the Free World like he ran the Apprentice boardroom. So as his corrupt ways are making their way to the forefront, and Republicans can no longer coverup his idiotic decisions, let’s discuss how the process of impeachment works. Shall we?

What is impeachment?

Impeachment is the power laid out in the U.S. Constitution that allows Congress to put certain officials on trial and potentially remove them from office. At a high level, the impeachment process moves through the legislature in largely the same way that a bill does. The House Committee on the Judiciary is usually charged with investigating the relevant allegations, and if they determine that there are adequate grounds for impeachment, booting the president is a two-step process. First, the full House votes on whether to impeach the president; second, the Senate votes on whether to convict the president of said charges. If two-thirds of the Senate votes yes, the president is out and the vice president steps in.

What are the grounds for impeachment?

The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

— U.S. Constitution, Article II, section 4

So, is it likely Donald Trump will be impeached?

Yep. Donald Trump and his minions are doing a PHENOMENAL job at being messy and careless. He’s basically handing over grounds to be impeached on a daily basis at this point. Although tough, just sit back and enjoy this train wreck. The Trump White House is unraveling as we speak.
