Could Donald Trump actually be impeached?


Donald Trump is in the biggest mess
of what has been a very messy political career.
There’s already been the Mueller investigation,
his handling of the border crisis,
his firing of James Comey, and all the shenanigans
that went on during his presidential campaign.
But now the Ukraine scandal
is threatening to outweigh all of that.
It’s looking like Trump could be … impeached.
You can’t impeach a president for doing a great job.
So what is impeachment?
Impeachment is a step in the process
of removing a president from office.
A process that could end
with Trump being told: you’re fired.
You’re fired!
You’re fired!
You’re fired! Get out of here!
A president can be impeached
for treason or bribery,
or the rather vague
‘high crimes and misdemeanours’.
High crimes and misdemeanours
isn’t really defined in the US constitution.
But it essentially means, you know,
having been up to no good.
News presenter: Five people have been
arrested and charge with breaking in
the headquarters of the Democratic
National Committee.
Presidents have been impeached before.
But it doesn’t happen often.
Bill Clinton was impeached in 1998.
He was accused of obstructing justice
and lying under oath.
I did not have sexual relations
with that woman.
I misled people.
Including even my wife.
Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868.
Johnson was seen as too sympathetic
to Confederate leaders
in the wake of the American civil war.
He was ultimately nobbled when
he fired his secretary of war.
The House of Representatives was preparing
to impeach Richard Nixon in 1974,
after people connected with Nixon’s
re-election campaign
broke into the Democratic
party headquarters, Watergate,
and Nixon tried to cover it up.
But Nixon resigned
before he could be impeached.
I shall resign the presidency
effective at noon tomorrow.
They’re pursuing an illegal, invalid and
unconstitutional bullshit impeachment.
If Trump is impeached it seems likely
it’ll be over his dealings with Ukraine.
But long before we found out
about Trump asking Ukraine to investigate
Joe Biden,
there were already moves to impeach the president.
In fact, one particularly keen Democratic
congressman began calling for Trump
to be impeached in May 2017.
This offence has occurred before
our very eyes.
And even before that infamous Ukraine phone call,
Trump was already under investigation
for things that could have led to impeachment.
Things including:
paying off a porn star following
an alleged affair;
his refusal to release his tax returns,
and whether anything nefarious is exposed
in those returns;
profiting off the office of president,
like in his DC hotel, where
numerous foreign dignitaries have stayed;
interfering with Robert Mueller’s
investigation into Russian election interference;
firing James Comey, who
was head of the FBI.
So how would Trump be impeached?
It’s the House of Representatives
that decides whether to impeach a president.
Someone will present ‘articles of impeachment’.
Essentially, documents detailing
the accusations against Trump.
The articles are then voted on
by the House judiciary committee.
Democrats have a majority on the judiciary
committee, so that could be plain sailing.
Then the entire House of Representatives
– 435 congressmen and women – vote on
whether to impeach.
If a simple majority vote to impeach,
then Trump is impeached.
225 representatives have already
said they support impeachment,
so that kind of seems like
a done deal: Trump will be impeached.
But being impeached doesn’t mean Trump
will be packing up his golf clubs, bathrobes
and golden chairs just yet.
It just means everything moves to the Senate,
where things get a little trickier.
Impeachment means a president, in this case,
Donald Trump, is essentially put on trial
in the Senate.
In there, the 100 senators, two from each
state, act as the jury.
If a two-thirds majority of the senators
vote to convict, then it’s bye bye Trump.
Bye bye!
Bye bye!
Bye bye!
Bye bye!
Bye bye!
Of course, the whole process is lined
with potential political pitfalls.
Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat, had been
reluctant to start the impeachment process.
It could galvanise Trump’s rock-solid
‘make America great again’ base
who already see the president as
the victim of a grand deep-state conspiracy.
It’s a waste of time.
Because it seems like it’s biased.
Do you have any regrets?
No, I would vote for him again.
On the other hand, about half
of the American public
are now in favour of impeachment.
Perhaps voters will appreciate the
Democrats’ bolder stance.
What we do know is that right
now 53 of the 100 senators are Republicans.
At this moment in time,
they might not be keen to give
their president the boot.
But, this is Donald Trump.
Who knows what could come up between now,
and a Senate trial.
And if public opinion continues
to turn against Trump,
don’t be surprised if some
of his Republican colleagues
start to turn against him too.

  1. The American public now regards President Trump as person who can't tell the truth, an adulterer, a women groper, a politician willing to sacrifice the nation's security for his own interest (Russia and now Ukraine connections), mentally unstable, incapable, … For the sake of the country, the party, their own political careers and conscience, Republican Congressmen and Senators should have the courage to do the right thing – Dump Trump and have Pence as President.

  2. The reason impeachment will not really happen is simple. If it happened, it would only guarantee an even larger Trump victory in 2020. Even though Democrat leadership are some of the least competent human beings I've ever seen in my life, even they should be able to figure out something so obvious.

  3. CLICK BAIT. Everything in this video on impeachment has already been covered countless times in the past two years.

  4. actually a 50 % plus one is not enough, by the constitution:-
    "The Constitution requires a two-thirds super majority to convict a person being impeached. The Senate enters judgment on its decision, whether that be to convict or acquit, and a copy of the judgment is filed with the Secretary of State"
    otherwise a reasonable discussion despite people claiming it has all been said before. . . .

  5. Democrat party has been doinng nothing for America, they only focus in take out President from office, and for ecletion 2020. That always impeach,impeach, impeach…

  6. SORRY, BUT YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    WRONG!!!! HE HAS DONE MORE THAN THOSE IN THE PAST 30 YEARS AT LEAST!!!!
    Give me a BREAK, whoever you are!!!!

  7. Trump almost certainly will be impeached, whether he will be removed from office depends on whether he is convicted. You are however mistaken about what the constitution actually says regarding impeachment. It does NOT say he can only be impeached for 'Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.' What it says is that following a conviction of impeachment for those things, he must be removed from office. It does NOT say those are the only possible reasons for impeachment ie the list is regarding mandatory action.

  8. The guardian have been banging on about this for years, and guess what, still no impeachment. Give it a rest Guardian.

  9. He is going to be impeached. What he has already admitted is enough for the House to submit articles of impeachment. However he is not likely to be removed from office. The GOP will vote for party over country.

  10. There’s no need for super secret impeachment inquiry. Everybody knows the Democrats could just hold an impeachment vote now and they would get it. Trump is guilty unless he can prove himself innocent beyond a reasonable doubt.

  11. To put it in a simple analogy, President Trump is the Road Runner and the Democrats are playing the part of Wile E. Coyote.

  12. pre-election smear campaign, nothing else to grab onto by democrats. making all the fuss knowing senate is full off die hard trump supporters

  13. All American presidents lie, cheat and break the law with impunity it's just that the Stable Genius took those things to a whole new level!

  14. It doesn't matter if we impeach him. The fact that the most morally corrupt human being on the planet made it there in the first place means we have failed as a country and the fact that we're all just sitting around trying to make sense of any of this means there's no chance things will get better.

  15. Impeachment is certain. If you read between the lines, Leningrad Lindsey Graham also hinted in one of his recent interviews that Chumps mental condition may be the path to removal that Republicans can take without a great risk to their own careers. Watch this space.

  16. Uhhhh. what? Bye Bye Trump?? fraid not, even if the senate votes to convict , which the Republican controled side will NOT, the president will not be removed from office. Neither of the other 2 impeached presidents , Clinton nor Jackson were removed..This video is completely wrong..Being impeached does not mean removal from office

  17. He IS going to be impeached and removed! Hopefully, he’ll then be arrested, charged, indicted and imprisoned. After all his assets have been seized, obviously!

  18. More and more people in the USA and around the world are now seriously thinking that once the US House of Representatives has impeached the mobster-in-chief a two-thirds majority in the US Senate will eventually find the bipartisan cojones to convict him.

  19. If you look closely at Trump nowadays, you'll see he has larger bags under his eyes…..he has sleepless nights….his whole administration is crumbling right before his very eyes…Mulvaney all but openly corroborated what trump said & is doing…Perry is resigning…his whole 'admin.' is in tatters….trump is guilty of treason…espionage….

  20. Trump's real crime, and the thing that will eventually cost him the Presidency and quite possibly his life, is his refusal to see Putin and Russia as an existential enemy in line with the Wolfowitz Doctrine
    Instead of talking up confrontation and war he talks about making deals and signing treaties. America needs perpetual external conflict to survive, without it our Nation dies.
    The office of the President of the United States of America has become incidental to the pursuit of that end.

  23. Short answer NO. It's not even an official inquiry. Pelosi cannot decree anything even though she thinks she can. Fun fact

  24. The Media are cultural belligerents. They are active battlefield participants, involved in a Coup against a duly elected President …. right now.

  25. Pelosi don't have the votes to impeach or she would have done it !! It's real simple folks President Trump will be re-elected by numbers never seen in any election in history, a landslide to beat all landslides!

  26. The politicians should impeach Trump for breaking the 2nd amendment law. Infringe means to limit or encroach upon. Putting limits on how the people can keep and bear arms is a direct violation to the sworn oath of office and service. It's actually treason. The Globalists are going make the Georgia Guidestones come to pass, if we the people of the United States are not equally equipped in arms.

  27. Trump has done nothing to be impeached for, so no he is not going to be impeached. Trump also has a majority of Republicans in the senate, and you're crazy if you think they would vote to impeach a president from their own party.

  28. Trump 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃

  29. They want to impeach Trump because he's getting Evidence corruption deal with previous administration lol like billions of dollars shouldn't we Should be more concern about those stolen billion dollars..

  30. That's why you are being impeached dummy, because you haven't done a great job with the exception of putting money into your pocket and supporting your businesses.

  31. Yeah right the Democrats actually want to impeach a man that doesn't even get paid to do his job. These despicable Democrats are on a witch Hunt and have absolutely nothing. How about they stop this foolishness and concentrate on their jobs that they were elected to do. Yeah right. Hahahahahaha.

  32. Keep dreaming. He isn’t guilty of anything but saving this mess of a country. The left is on the wrong side of history. In 50 years people will look back to admire this leader.

  33. It's pathetic that the Democratic politics are trying to get their president impeached, exposed, ect; instead of doing their job

  34. Well il tell you on thing we made history when Trump was voted president and if they impeach him it will once again historical and mainly repeating history and Americans will not go for it

  35. Checks and balances are must in any democracy. No president is above the law and I most definitely support the separation of church and state.

  36. I've literally never seen a President curse on live television. It makes me literally sick knowing children can be exposed to this.
