Is Trump Impeachment a Mere Threat?

Impeachment is an integral part of system to have proper check and balance in American Constitution. The President can veto against any extra constitutional work of parliament. He can also appoint the Chief Justice of Supreme Court Judiciary can nullify any act of Parliament. Both Parliament and Judiciary can impeach President of America. So the three branches Judiciary, legislative and executive are under the system of check and balance.

No branch can exceed from its original jurisdiction. Theme of separation of powers is in true practice in UK and USA. Though the president of America is the most powerful President in the world yet he has no absolute powers. He is not above board and is answerable to Parliament for his policies. If he is found in any foul practice falling in the category of Article 11 section 4, he is tried for impeachment.

Article 11 section 4 of USA deals with impeachment of civil officers including president and vice President of America. On conviction of, Treason, Bribery or other High crimes and Misdemeanors, he or she is impeached. In case of being proven these indictments, he or she is removed from service and withholding of all other future benefits. In addition to this, accused will face criminal proceedings. Till now 19 high officers including 2 presidents have been impeached.


Why does America forget that COUP in Iraq and Afghanistan? The governments of lesser power are overthrown just by a resolution of Congress. Democratic and legally elected governments had been dethroning by America in the past. It is the paradox and double standard of USA. For its own government, the process of termination is rather impossible, for the next world all means are fair whether achieved by hook by crook.


President Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were impeached but acquitted and none of them was removed from office because framer of Constitution made it extreme difficult to expel an elected President. The natural way to remove a president from his service is election but in case of urgent removal, impeachment is the only way. It requires a prolong process to finally decide that the under trial president is in danger of national integrity and no more fit for his position.

But before going in detail the impeachment of Donald Trump, it seems appropriate to analyses the process of impeachment in USA. The whistle-blower unfolds some secrecy of treason or misconduct of high officers including President before public. The speaker of The House of Representative sends the matter to judiciary committee for keen inquiry. If the committee agrees that the arraignment against the alleged officer is enough to be impeached, it recommends impeachment.

After it the House of Representative passes the resolution with simple majority of votes and refers the case to Senate for further proceedings. The Senate inquiries into the matter and two third majorities are necessary to impeach the high officers or president. After the vote of two third majorities, the president is removed from service automatically. The President Pro Tempore oversees the matter but if he is being impeaches, Chief Justice of Supreme Court supervise all the process.

The inquiry against Donald Trump is in progress till 24 September after leaking of his phonic call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky  on 25 July this year. He is charged with pressurizing Ukrainian president to dig up dirt on his opponent and some support in 2020 Presidential election.

Nancy Pelosi the Speaker of House of Representative sent all the matter to Adam Skiff, The Chair of the House of Judiciary Committee to inquire into matter deeply. Democrats are dead sure that these allegations are enough to get rid of Trump. On other side Trump tweeted, “Democrat lawyer is same for both Whistle blowers? All support Obama and Crooked Hillary. Witch Hunt!”It is to be noted that Trump may be second after Richard Nixon who was inquired but not impeached.

The experts in America look at the situation as no more than a political threat for Trump who is returning from Saudi Arabia with in a day. He will face the inquiry and will remain safe like previous presidents. For his removal, a political will is unavoidable otherwise two third majority in Senate will be the dream of mad for democrats. Trump is escalating his rhetoric against the impeachment investigation being led by House Democrats. He said, “It is a COUP, intended to take away the power of people”

Why does America forget that COUP in Iraq and Afghanistan? The governments of lesser power are overthrown just by a resolution of Congress. Democratic and legally elected governments had been dethroning by America in the past. It is the paradox and double standard of USA. For its own government, the process of termination is rather impossible, for the next world all means are fair whether achieved by hook by crook.

All is fair in Middle East and Kashmir and only impeachment is spied against American President. Whether this impeachment results in positive or not for democrats, it is clear that it has far reaching consequences for the next presidential election of America in twenty twenty. Democrats are paving the path more for the future than for the present.
