Impeachment – What Does It Really Mean?

House Democrats are turning up the heat and talk about the possibility of President Donald Trump being impeached.  But Republicans are quick to say that such talk is premature and highly unlikely.  Representative Al Green, a Democrat from Texas is reportedly putting together the articles for impeachment for alleged obstruction of justices.  Green alleges that Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey earlier this month amounts to obstruction of justice.  Green further says the revelations that the President asked Comey about the federal probe into the Trump campaign’s Russia ties is another reason impeachment is warranted.

But what’s really involved in impeaching the President of the United States and just because the president is impeached, does that mean he is removed from office?  Harold Fisher talks with Civil Rights Attorney A. Scott Bolden about the impeachment process and what the long arm the of law has to say about this issue.
