How The Impeachment Process Works, Simplified

Impeachment inquiry is announced.

House committees (Intelligence, Oversight,

Financial Services, Foreign Affairs,

Ways and Means, and Judiciary) submit evidence

of impeachable offenses to Judiciary Committee.

If there is sufficient evidence

of wrongdoing, Judiciary

sends articles of

impeachment to the

full House.

House holds a floor vote on

articles of impeachment.

“PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!”

Articles of impeachment

move to the

Republican-controlled Senate.

Per GOP Senate Leadership Aide,

the Senate could hold a majority vote to

dismiss the articles of impeachment.

Senate determines rules for

trial proceedings, and holds a trial.

At least 2/3 of the Senate

votes to convict.
