A simple majority, 218 to impeach in the House. And 2/3 to convict/remove in the senate or 67 votes.

They have the votes to impeach in the House. But he will likely be acquitted in the Senate because they don’t have the votes to remove. Like last time.
Gotcha..thank you for the knowledge

I heard Mitch won’t bring back the Senate this week to vote. Not until after the inauguration. Guy was close to being killed but cool. Keep him around.

Group of spineless, racist losers
So then, all this is pointless if the Senate is coming back until after?

Make no mistake, they’re pushing this as far back as possible because they want the Republicans that voted for the impeachment to get destroyed online and everywhere else so that they change their mind.

What would it take to successfully remove Trump? Like they literally wanted to see Mike Pence hanging?

He can still be convicted by the Senate and possibly prevented from running again even after his term is over. Even if the Senate was in session this week there was a rumor that Nancy would wait to send the articles over until after Biden’s first 100 days.

Pence and the cabinet invoking the 25th Amendment is the only real option with a week left. Even that could take longer with legal challenges.

Pence is on board right? They tried kill him.

How does the cabinet invoke the 25th amendment

I think it’s an open question of whether he can still be convicted after his term is over. But even if he could, it would still require 2/3 of the senate. And that seems unlikely. Especially when he’s no longer in office.
