The Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict, and the penalty for an impeached official upon conviction is removal from office. In some cases, the Senate has also disqualified such officials from holding public offices in the future. There is no appeal.

First impeachment.
How senators voted on Trump’s impeachment

Senators voted largely along party lines to acquit President Donald Trump on charges that he abused power and obstructed Congress when he allegedly sought to pressure Ukraine to investigate his rivals. Two-thirds of the Senate would have been required to convict Trump and remove him from office — something that’s never happened before in U.S. history.

Second impeachment.
Here’s how senators voted on Trump's second impeachment

House impeachment managers needed to convince 17 Republicans to join all Democrats to impeach the president. In the end, seven Republicans joined Democrats, meaning Trump was acquitted of inciting insurrectionists to attack the Capitol on Jan. 6.

We can only hope this is what is in store for the Biden Crime Family syndicate. Thanks for posting.

2023 - still going
Both impeachment are done and over with. 2019 and 2021
The 4 indictments and the 91 criminal charges are different.
Pelosi has nothing to do with it. The House of Representatives and the Senate have nothing to do with it.
Republicans have been wanting to impeach President Biden ever since he won in 2020.
If they can find evidence they should go ahead but I don't think they have anything yet.
If and when impeached, will he be convicted?
I doubt it.

And both were unsubstantiated garbage brought forward by disgusting and evil Peloser scum.

Yup, the fact that the GOP hasn't produced a shred of evidence after repeatedly claiming they did is just so embarrassing.

Lyin Biden's "read my lips" moment...

Key Biden tax pledge for audits of people making under $400K nearly impossible: ‘Blew up the narrative’
Tax reform advocate Grover Norquist said Democrats are 'knowingly lying'

The day after Biden’s remarks, Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Danny Werfel announced the agency is hiring 3,700 new employees as part of its expansion to target these wealthy taxpayers.

The problem as far as auditing goes is "there is no way to identify the complete population of taxpayers that meet the criterion of $400,000 or more," according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

IRS guidelines for high earners haven’t changed since 1976 when it categorized anyone earning $200,000 as high income, according to TIGTA. Further, the IRS passed on the TIGTA recommendation to formally identify $400,000 as the threshold for high income because the agency wants to maintain "agility," the report says.

The inspector general’s findings "blew up the narrative," on taxing only the rich, and shows Democrats are "knowingly lying," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

Say What?!
Joe Biden Tells Democrats to Treat Future White Minority ‘with Respect’. Though a white minority won't happen in the foreseeable future, unless he's talking lumping all minorities as one, which is kinda racist, I wonder why he feels the need to tell fellow dems this? Makes no sense, unless he is implying all dems are inherently racist?

"European-origin Americans deserve respect even after they become a minority in the United States, President Joe Biden told a friendly interviewer in an October 1 interview."

about 2.5% of americans are jewish, nearly 29% are hispanic/ latino. Just a couple of examples.
Percent of white/non-hispanic is declining, due to low birth rate.
As whites intermarry with people of color (an increasing trend), mixed races will increase, strictly white/anglo/european decreases as a percentage of the population. So that group could in future become a minority.
the children of European-origin parents were a 45 percent minority of the K-12 school population in 2021.

It's hilarious that right wingers are still desperately clinging to Hunter Biden laptop conspiracies to discredit President Biden. But facts don't care about right wingers feelings, and the fact is Republicans have failed to produce even a shred of 'evidence' of President Biden's alleged corruption.
