Trump Impeachment and What People Don’t Get
The news is all over the Trump impeachment. It is breaking news at every moment. Yes, the lower house (Congress) is gathering information, leaking information and not sharing information but none of this means anything.
If people read the Constitution they would understand that the Congress can Impeach the President but it carries no weight. (Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5) The House of Representatives … shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
They must turn over their findings to the Senate and then the Senate holds a hearing. There must be charges of treason, bribery or high crimes or misdemeanors to Impeach a President and the Senate must agree that the President is guilty and it must be a vote by a 2/3 majority of the Senate to do so. (Article 1 Section 3 Clauses 6 and 7) …
- The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present.
- Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States; but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
So, re-read the last sentence – The Senate must vote to Impeach by a 2/3rds majority. The Senate is controlled by the Republicans – There is no way 75 votes to Impeach the President will ever happen.
Do your do diligence and fact check me. Trump will never be Impeached. This is all a game by the Democrats in hopes of taking votes away coming into the 2020 Election and it will most likely backfire on them – especially since there is little evidence to support an Impeachment to begin with. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States
I am not a Trump fan by any means – I don’t like the way he talks and I don’t like his lies. He needs to clean up his act. I also don’t like Pelosi, Schumer or Clinton either. They just tell less lies but they are still garbage. Tulisi Gabbard is the only Democrat running that I have any respect for.
Anyway – Good Luck Democrats — You are probably going to see Trump for another 4 years.
