  1. Impeachment keeps coming up on different threads, so I thought might be a good time to separate it out and to explain it. Anybody with a different description, please feel free to post. Impeachment is the process that the House of Representatives uses to determine there is reason to believe that the president or other official has committed an action which warrants removal from office. Sort of like an indictment in regular courts. Takes a simple majority to vote for impeachment. If impeachment bill is passed, it goes to the Senate where a hearing is held. I believe the Chief Justice presides. Certain members of the House are certified to present the "case." The Senate must vote by 2/3's majority to convict and remove the person from office. Impeachment is only the first of two steps. Conviction is the important one. There have only been two impeachments of presidents (Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton) and neither resulted in a conviction. Both times, the opposition party controlled both houses of Congress. Currently, the Republicans (Trump's party) controls both houses of Congress, especially the House.
