Trump impeachment needs approval from the senate

Market Trends - 19/12/2019

On Wednesday, a
historic vote registered Donald Trump as the third president to be accused of
high crimes and misdeeds and will be placed on trial in front of the Senate
that could remove him from the administration. The House of Representatives
voted to impeach the President of the United States Donald Trump and that
created more uncertainty in an already stressful environment.

After yesterday's
votes, the White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham explained that the
impeachment is "unconstitutional" and she said in a statement, that
the president, “is confident that the Senate will restore regular order,
fairness, and due process,” and he is ready “for the next steps, and confident
that he will be fully exonerated.” Following the voting, Nancy Pelosi a somber
House Speaker paid tribute to the deceased Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland,
who was between the Democratic directors of the anti-Trump work until his
passing at age 68.

Pelosi stated that
“He said, “When the history books are written about this tumultuous era, I want
them to show that I was among those in the House of Representatives who stood
up to lawlessness and tyranny,” “He also said somewhat presciently, ‘When we are
dancing with the angels, the question will be what did you do to make sure we
kept our democracy.’” Now the historic votes ended a 90 days request by House
Democrats in Trump’s meddling with Ukraine. But the impeachment process is not
over yet. The steps now are to move to a trial in the Senate, which they will
decide if they are going to sentence Trump and dismiss him from the
administration, or to excuse him.

maintain a 53-47 advantage in the senate. Sentence and removal require 67
votes. No Senate Republicans have indicated that they would vote to convict
President Trump.
