Impeachment

How impeachment works, just in case you didn’t know;

The Constitution does not address whether a president may be criminally prosecuted, and the Department of Justice has previously said that the president can be removed only through the impeachment process. In 1974, Nixon was not criminally charged; the grand jury named him as an unindicted co-conspirator.

The Constitution says grounds for impeachment are “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” A simple majority is needed in the House for articles of impeachment, but conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds majority (67 votes).

Now you know! You’re welcome! School is now dismissed!
