Donald Trump Impeachment Doesn’t Mean Removal From Office

Impeachment doesn't mean removal from office, but it's often a prelude to removing a public official from office. To impeach is to “charge (a public official) with an offense or misdemeanor committed while in office.” In other words, it means to formally accuse a public official of a crime. In the United States, it is only the House of Representatives that has the power to impeach the president. The next procedure after impeachment is trial and then removal or acquittal. In the US, only the Senate has the power to try and remove or acquit a president who has been impeached (by the House of Representatives). Only two presidents have been impeached in America’s history, and both were acquitted by the Senate. They are President Andrew Johnson (America’s 17th president who was ac...
