Impeachment is a remedy for grave abuses of the public trust. December 17, Archived from the original on January 4, President Trump's numerous and flagrant abuses of power are precisely what the Framers had in mind as grounds for impeaching and removing a president.
Cohen, Marshall January 20, Archived from the original on February 2, Retrieved February 3, Legal scholars are panning new arguments championed by Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, who recently joined President Donald Trump's legal team and is making the case that Trump cannot be impeached because he didn't commit any crimes.
Ackerman, Bruce January 25, Dershowitz has said he will argue, based on a narrow reading of the Constitution's phrase "Treason, Bribery or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors", that there must be proof that Trump committed a crime or seriously violated the law, and that the mere "abuse of executive power" does not suffice, in order to convict the president at his impeachment trial.
Dershowitz's view has been overwhelmingly rejected by serious constitutional scholars. Weber, Peter January 30, Dershowitz is an expert in criminal law and a famous defense lawyer.
Almost all constitutional scholars disagree with his views on impeachment. Woodward, Calvin; Yen, Hope January 21, Constitutional scholars say the grounds for impeachment and removal from office—"Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors"—are a catch-all designed to redress any consequential abuse of power so long as that abuse hurts the country at large.
Msytal, Elie January 28, The Nation. And finally, Alan Dershowtiz argued that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense, while self-owning the fact that essentially no credible legal scholars agree with him.

December 13, Archived from the original on December 10, March 15, Archived PDF from the original on December 17, In , Andrew Johnson was impeached for firing one of his Cabinet secretaries in violation of a law passed by Congress — and also for insulting Congress.
In , Richard Nixon was headed toward being impeached for obstruction of justice and abuse of power related to the Watergate burglary cover-up, but he resigned before it could happen.
And in , Bill Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice for his effort to cover up his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
The Trump impeachment inquiry featured a hybrid process in which the Intelligence Committee did primary fact-finding, wrote a report, and then kicked the report to the Judiciary Committee, which drafted the actual articles of impeachment.
But the endpoint in the House is a vote of the full chamber on each article of impeachment. If even one article is approved by a majority, the president has been dun dun dun For the president, nothing happens beyond a symbolic reprimand if he or she is impeached.
Impeachment by the House alone does not remove a president from office or do anything in particular to him. All a House impeachment vote does is turn the matter over to the people who will really decide what happens — the members of the United States Senate.
The chief justice of the Supreme Court presides and is responsible for making procedural rulings during the trial — but the Senate can vote to overrule his decisions.
At the end, though, this trial ends in a vote on each article of impeachment — to either convict or acquit the president. A vote to convict on even one article will remove the president from office.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell showed no interest before the trial in subpoenaing witnesses who did not testify before the House.
Ultimately, the Senate voted not to call any witnesses. It takes a two-thirds vote of the chamber 67 out of senators to convict an impeached president.
There are currently 53 Republican senators, so removing Trump would have taken 20 of them to defect.
In the end, only Romney voted to convict on one count. Impeachment has polled moderately well , and Trump is moderately unpopular. But to inspire mass defections from Senate Republicans , the landscape would need to have been overwhelmingly in favor of impeachment.
If Trump had been removed from office — or if he, like Nixon, had resigned under pressure — the presidency would have fallen to Vice President Mike Pence.
This all gets fairly fanciful, but there are basically four constitutionally plausible scenarios. The Presidential Succession Act says that if the president and vice president both go down simultaneously, the speaker of the House is next in line.
In that case, the baton falls to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo — but Pompeo was actually on the call with Zelensky that is at the heart of all this, and is otherwise deeply involved in the Ukraine issue.
Next in line after him is Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who seems essentially free and clear of any involvement with the scandal. At least 20 Republicans would have had to defect for the Senate to convict Trump on impeachment charges.
The impeachment of Donald Trump has been a hot topic of political discussion for a long time, and for a long time it was very unpopular.
That has changed since the Ukraine story became public knowledge, with support for impeaching Trump now generally a bit above opposition.
A larger share of the public say they disapprove of Trump than those who say they want to see him impeached. Robert Mueller found behavior that appears to meet the factual criteria for obstruction of justice in his investigation of Trump and Russian election interference.
Consequently, frontline members in tough districts became concerned that the impeachment issue could cost them their seats , and party leadership was obsessed with protecting them by keeping impeachment off the table.

Quindi, penso, e lo avete letto, che nessuno mi abbia fatto pressioni"   . Infine, il 30 settembre , Zelens'kyj ribadisce la sua posizione, affermando inoltre di aver saputo del blocco degli aiuti militari statunitensi soltanto successivamente alla telefonata del 25 luglio.
Tuttavia, il 3 ottobre il The New York Times ha pubblicato un articolo in cui si racconta che l'ambasciatore statunitense presso l'Unione Europea, Gordon Sondland , e l'inviato speciale per la questione ucraina, Kurt Volker , avrebbero addirittura preparato una dichiarazione scritta da far firmare a Zelens'kyj, nella quale quest'ultimo si sarebbe dovuto impegnare a far aprire indagini nei confronti della Burisma e sul sospetto coinvolgimento ucraino nel tentativo di influenzare le presidenziali per favorire Hillary Clinton .
