You wanna impeach me? Bring it on!

Presidential impeachment may be the last thing you would ever think could happen in America. In fact, since 1841, over one-third of all American Presidents have either died in office, became disabled, or resigned. However, no American President has ever been forced from office due to impeachment.

Oyiwa!

The impeachment process plays out in Congress and requires critical majority votes in both the House of Representatives and the Senate; the House first decides if there are grounds to impeach the president, and if it does, a majority vote is used to impeach the president.

Don’t be happy yet because the battle isn’t over! Being impeached is sort of like being indicted of a crime.

The president will remain in office pending the outcome of the Senate impeachment trial.

This means that, even if the house decides that the president should be impeached, he will stay in power until the Senate gives its verdict in a trial. The president is finally impeached if he loses the Senate trial in court, but if he wins in court, he continues his term of office.

Power is sweet innit?

Two presidents have been impeached; the Democrats Bill Clinton, in 1998, and Andrew Johnson, in 1868. Neither was found guilty by the Senate in their subsequent trials.

For the case of Trump, he is unlikely to be impeached because Republicans control Congress and Republican leaders in the House and Senate are still standing behind Trump.
