Second impeachment of Donald Trump

From : Wikipedia....... Second impeachment of Donald Trump
The second impeachment of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, occurred on January 13, 2021, one week before his term was due to expire. Trump's impeachment by the House of Representatives of the 117th U.S. Congress came after his attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election; the adopted article of "incitement of insurrection" cited his January 2 phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and alleged that Trump incited the storming of the United States Capitol on January 6 after pushing baseless voter fraud conspiracies around the 2020 presidential election.[1] A single article of impeachment charging Trump with "incitement of insurrection" against the U.S. government and "lawless action at the Capitol" was introduced to the House of Representatives on January 11, 2021.[1] The article was introduced with more than 200 co-sponsors.[2] The same day, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave Vice President Mike Pence an ultimatum to invoke Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to assume the role of Acting President within 24 hours, or the House would proceed with impeachment proceedings.[3][4] Pence stated he would not in a letter to Pelosi the following day. He argued that to do so would not "be in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution".[5] Nevertheless, a majority of the House of Representatives, including one Republican, passed a resolution urging Pence to either invoke the 25th Amendment or have the House majority impeach Trump.[6] Trump's second impeachment marked the fourth impeachment of a president of the United States. Trump is the only U.S. president and the only holder of any federal office to have been impeached twice, having been previously impeached in December 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.[7][8] With ten Republican representatives voting in support, the resolution received the most pro-impeachment votes ever from the president's party, making it the most bipartisan presidential impeachment in history.[9] This was also the first presidential impeachment in which all majority caucus members voted unanimously for impeachment. The trial in the Senate is scheduled to start on February 9.[10] At the trial, a two-thirds majority of senators is needed to convict Trump. A conviction would trigger a second vote in which a simple majority in the Senate could permanently disqualify Trump from holding public office in the United States
From BBC English Donald Trump has been impeached - again. So what now? The former president is the first in US history to have been charged with misconduct - or impeached - twice by the lower chamber of US Congress. The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives accused Mr Trump of encouraging violence with his false claims of election fraud and egging on a mob to storm the Capitol on 6 January. Some Republicans also backed impeachment in that historic vote. What happens next? Mr Trump, a Republican, now faces trial in the upper chamber, the Senate. A two-thirds majority in the Senate means a conviction. If Mr Trump is convicted, senators could also vote to bar him from ever holding public office again. OK, when is the trial? It is set to start next month. On 25 January, the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, sent the article of impeachment - the charge of incitement laid out and approved by the lower chamber - to the Senate. According to the Constitution, that triggers the trial proceedings to begin by 13:00 (local) the following day. But the new Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer has agreed to a request from the Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, for more time. So the trial itself will begin on 9 February. Can he be tried now he has left? It's never happened before, so it's untested and the US Constitution doesn't say. Impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon were ended when he quit in 1974. So Mr Trump could take his case to the Supreme Court, claiming his trial was unconstitutional. Some lower ranked officials have been impeached after leaving office. What happens to impeached presidents? What impeachment means for Trump, Biden and America Would Trump be convicted in the Senate? Democrats only hold half the 100 seats so they would require 17 Republicans to vote against someone from their own party. That's a high bar for a party that has largely remained publicly loyal to Mr Trump. But 10 Republicans in the House supported impeachment and a couple of senators have indicated they are open to it. Even Mitch McConnell says he has not yet made up his mind how he will vote. At the Capitol: Trump's Christian supporters 'Like a medieval battle': The riots frontline Could Trump run for president again if convicted? If he is convicted by the Senate, lawmakers could hold another vote to block him from running for elected office again - which he had indicated he planned to do in 2024. This could be the biggest consequence of this impeachment. If he is convicted, a simple majority of senators would be needed to block Mr Trump from holding "any office of honour, trust or profit under the United States". So 50 senators plus a casting vote from Vice-President Kamala Harris would be enough to damn Mr Trump's hopes of political power. This could be appealing to Republicans hoping to run for president in the future and those who want Mr Trump out of the party. What about other benefits? There has been talk of Mr Trump losing benefits granted to his predecessors under the 1958 Former Presidents Act, which include a pension and health insurance, and potentially a lifetime security detail at taxpayers' expense. However, Mr Trump is likely to keep these benefits if he is convicted after leaving office. What was his first impeachment for again? That was over his dealings with Ukraine, although he denied any wrongdoing. He was accused of pressing the country's leader to open an investigation into Mr Biden, then his emerging rival for the White House, and his son Hunter. Mr Trump appeared to use military aid as leverage. He was impeached by the House and cleared by the then Republican-controlled Senate. Hang on, why was Trump impeached again? .......... https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-55586677
