    The House of Representatives brings charges against the government officer in the impeachment process.


    In the United States, impeachment is one of the full powers of the federal Congress that allows for formal modifications, or cassation of a mandate, against an occupier of public office for crimes foreseen in the constitution of the country. Most of the cases for mandate cancellation have been for crimes committed while in office, although in exceptional cases the United States Congress voted for the impeachment of individuals for crimes prior to political life or for the present public commission. In fact, the trial process and the subsequent cassation of a public official differs from the impeachment itself. Throughout the history of the country, some presidents have been tried in impeachment proceedings, with Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton being the only ones who have been charged by the House of Representatives - although acquitted by the Senate. The impeachment suit against Richard Nixon was technically suspended since he resigned before the vote in Congress. To date, no US president has been impeached or removed from office.

    At the federal level, Article II of the United States Constitution states that: "The President, Vice President and all civil servants of the United States may be removed from office on grounds of accusation, and conviction, for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and crimes". The House of Representatives has the power to vote on these cases, while the Senate is charged with judging at all levels of the cassation proceeding. The incumbent of the position is notified and removed immediately after Senate approval. During the Nixon trial in 1993, the Supreme Court ruled that the federal judicial system could not prosecute high court cases.

    The House of Representatives draws up and votes on the Articles of Impeachment.

    Once it is passed in the House, the President is "impeached" and is then tried by the US Senate.
