HOW IMPEACHMENT GETS DONE IN THE UNITED STATES



HAPPY INAUGURATION DAY

. .
All right then, what is impeachment, and how does it work?
Basically, it’s the power laid out in the U.S. Constitution that allows Congress to put certain officials on trial and potentially remove them from office. At a high level, the impeachment process moves through the legislature in largely the same way that a bill does, so feel free to dust off your fondest Schoolhouse Rock memories.

The House Committee on the Judiciary is usually charged with investigating the relevant allegations, and if they determine that there are adequate grounds for impeachment, booting the president is a two-step process. First, the full House (that’s the legislative chamber, not the cast of the hit TV show—common mistake) votes on whether to impeach the president; second, the Senate votes on whether to convict the president of said charges. If two-thirds of the Senate votes yes, the president is out and the vice president steps in.
So, Mike Pence?
Uh-huh.
That’s still not ideal.
Listen, a racist conspiracy theorist is the president of the United States, my friend. A middle schooler who's good at SimCity is ideal compared to this. Pick your battles.
