Missed Corrections

“Hey guys. Love the podcast, but I feel like this impeachment concept is still not being communicated accurately. It's pretty simple though...The House of Reps impeaches (the Senate does not). You can think of this part of the process sort of like a criminal indictment that yields formal charges. If the House passes impeachment articles (charges), the process is moved into the Senate where they try the case (which is presided over by the chief justice of the SCOTUS). There are several options the Senate can take, but the ultimate outcome is conviction and removal from office. This is how a president can be impeached but not convicted or removed. Basically all that means is that the House was really pissed off at the president, voted on some charges, but the Senate didn't do anything concrete about it. - “submitted by Evan Tishuk
