So will there be impeachment?
Trump, of course, entered “the zone of possible impeachment,” says David Gergen, former adviser to Nixon, Reagan, and Clinton.
But so far the only Congressman who stated the necessity of removal of the tramp, became a member of the house of representatives, Democratic party politician from Texas, al green.
Republicans in Congress, without whose support the impeachment of trump’s impossible in principle (the President’s party controls the most seats in both chambers) is still not expressed his desire to dismiss is limited to comments in connection with this or that scandal.
On may 17 Senator John McCain a direct question about the possibility of removal of the tramp stated that he does not consider impeachment to be appropriate. “I can only judge on the current situation, — quotes the Republican The Washington Examiner. — Every day we see new surprises, but at the moment this approach does not seem to me appropriate. I don’t think many people understand [the calls for impeachment] seriously.”
To start the procedure of impeachment is only entitled to the House of representatives and only on the recommendation of the legal Committee. After recommendation the issue of impeachment is put to a vote: MPs are discussing the accusations against the head of state and a simple majority of votes determine whether there are grounds for his removal.
If the House of representatives votes for impeachment, the case goes to the Senate where the actual trial — the members of the upper chamber (under the chairmanship of a judge of the Supreme court) are considering the charges on the merits and on the results of the decision on dismissal of the President. For dismissal requires a two-thirds majority of the votes.
