Nancy Pelosi Announces Official Impeachment Inquiry.

Quote:To impeach the President one must present evidence of "High Crimes & Misdemeanors," House Speaker Pelosi's call defies logic in the face of her [and DT's] refusal to countenance Jewish guilt for 911 .. what has she got on Trump in any case, both are tools of the Jews as far as I can tell.


Quote:In the US context the framers of the Constitution set up the impeachment process to be a way Congress can remove the President from power. First, the House of Representatives has the power to impeach the President. A simple majority is necessary for an article of impeachment to be approved.

Each article lays out a charge against the President, then the process moves to the Senate where a trial will be held, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Presiding. Finally and crucially it takes a two thirds vote from the Senate to actually convict a President on any count. Conviction on any count would then remove the President from office and put the Vice President in power.

Note that two-thirds of the Senate — 67 votes in the modern era — is a very high threshold that’s almost never achieved on any matter that’s remotely partisan. The framers did not make it easy for Congress to remove a democratically elected President from power.
