A SECOND IMPEACHMENT?!

President Trump
could become
the first president in history

to be impeached twice!

After the Congress was stormed and occupied
by protesters

on January 6th,
the Democratic Party
is calling on President Trump
to resign from office.

They want to see him gone.

But they cannot
remove him from office
immediately.

So, they are calling for Trump
to be impeached
a second time,
several days before the end
of his term in office.

The Democrats accuse President Trump
of encouraging a revolt
in which five people died.

The impeachment process
may go ahead as early as Monday, January 11th.

Now, what is impeachment?
And how does it work?

In the US, impeachment
is not necessarily
the removal

of a president
from office.
It is more like a trial.

Three American presidents
have been impeached so far:
Andrew Johnson in 1868, 
Bill Clinton in 1998, and 
Donald Trump in 2019.

They were impeached
by the lower house
of the American Congress,

the House of Representatives.

But they were acquitted
by the Senate,

the higher house of the American Congress,
so none of them was removed from office.
