With many of President Donald Trump’s recent actions in office, many observers are wondering if a Donald Trump Impeachment is a certainty.
The first thing you need to know is that an impeachment is a political action and not a criminal one. This means, no matter what Trump does in office, while he can face legal consequences for those actions under the law, impeachment is not one of them.
In fact, impeachment can only be brought on by Congress, not by the law. Further, impeachment doesn’t necessarily mean removal from office. It’s merely a formal statement of charges, similar to an indictment.
It’s only when a President is impeached that he faces the possibility of a conviction from the legislature, which would remove him from office.
American historian Allan Lichtman, who accurately predicted every US election outcome since 1984, including Trump’s win explains the why and how the president could be impeached. And how he can avoid it.
