Key paragraph in articles of impeachment against Trump regarding 2020 - Business Insider

  • The House introduced two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump Tuesday focusing on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

  • The process of impeachment takes a simple majority in the House of Representatives.
  • The process then moves to the Senate, which holds a trial.
  • The Senate then votes whether to remove a president from office, which requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate.
  • Disqualification from running for office would then take a second vote in the Senate — one that only requires a majority to pass, according to The Journal.
