How Does the Impeachment Process Actually Work?

With House Democrats now bringing Articles of Impeachment against President Trump, it might be beneficial to take a look at how the impeachment process works so American voters will know what to expect in the coming weeks and months. While the full process is a complex and intricate thing, the abbreviated, simplified list of steps required to impeach a President and remove him from office is as follows:

  • An impeachment resolution is introduced by a member of the House.
  • The Speaker of the House directs the House Committee on the Judiciary to hold a hearing on the resolution and decide if it should be brought to a vote on the House floor.
  • If a simple majority on the Judiciary Committee approves the resolution it is moved to a full vote on the House floor.
  • If a simple majority in the House vote in favor of impeachment, the President is impeached.
  • If the President is impeached, the process then moves to the Senate where a trial is held. The Senate must decide if the President is guilty of the crimes he has been accused of. During this trial, the President is afforded a counsel to represent him, and the chief justice of the Supreme Court presides over the trial.
  • Once the trial is complete, Senators vote on whether or not the President is guilty of the crimes he has been accused of. If two-thirds of the Senate votes that the President is guilty, he is removed from office and the Vice President is sworn in.
