Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Who impeaches?
The House of Representatives. Article I, Section 2, Clause 5 U.S. Constitution

After a successful impeachment, which is like a grand jury hearing, the case goes to the Senate were a trial is held under presidency of the Chief of Justice. In case of a conviction by the Senate removal of office and even disbarring from holding any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States can happen. After removal from office the convicted party is given into the hands of the justice were it can be indictment, tried, judged, and punished according to the law.

In common language Impeachment does not only mean the vote by the House but also the following indictment, trial, conviction in and by the Senate, and actual removal from the office as well.

"You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if [the Senate] determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role. Impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office." - Lindsey Graham - R-SC
