What is the process for impeaching the president?

I know you can impeach a president, but how?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The House Judiciary reviews the case to substantiate claims of criminal activity and passes the matter to the entire House. After review, the House vote. Articles of Impeachment go to the Senate, which votes. Two-thirds majority is needed in the Senate to remove the president from office.

A majority of the House of Representatives votes to impeach a President, like charging a person with a crime. The Senate conducts a trial then votes on removal from office.

First the House passes articles of impeachment (indictment) by simple majority, then the Senate conducts a trial, with the Chief Justice presiding. Two-thirds majority is necessary for a conviction.

It is a very complicate process, but in general, the House Judiciary Committee considers whether to impeach and draws up documents. Then the House of Representatives votes on the idea.
