On Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would begin a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump. This inquiry follows allegations that he requested the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden - his potential opponent in the 2020 presidential election.
Nancy Pelosi stated:
“The president must be held accountable. No one is above the law.”
How does it work?
If the House votes on a simple majority to impeach, the proceedings are then dealt with by the Senate. If then at least two-thirds of the Senate find President Trump to be guilty, he will be removed from office, and Vice President Mike Pence will take over.
In the past, two presidents have been subjected to impeachment proceedings. However, no president has ever been removed from office due to impeachment.
Considering only two presidents have been impeached in history, has Trump done enough to deserve impeachment?
