New Hampshire candidates for U.S. Congress are frequently asked, “Would you vote to impeach President Donald Trump?”
How does impeachment work?
The U.S. Constitution allows for the impeachment and removal of a president for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” There is no strict definition of what crimes fall under that clause.
To impeach a president, first a majority of the U.S. House of Representatives must vote for impeachment. This is like charging the president with a crime.
