ConservativeAction.org: U.S. Constitution, Impeachment Provisions

U.S. Constitution, Impeachment Provisions

One of the most important provisions our Founders created in the Constitution is that regarding impeachment. It was intended to protect the citizens of the United States from corruption and abuse of power from those in high office. Though impeachment proceedings have been rare in our nation's history, the numerous crimes and wrongdoings of the Clinton White House clearly constitute impeachable offenses under the constitution.

Article I, Section II

The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
Article I, Section III
The Senate shall have the sole power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside. And no person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

Judgment in Case of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust, or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.

Article II, Section IV
The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
Article III, Section III
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or, in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corrpution of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
