What you need to know about impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump

Impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump are moving on to the next stage. This is what you need to know.

What is impeachment?

Impeachment is when a legislative body formally levels charges – which have to be very serious – against a high official of government, including the president.

It does not mean automatic removal from office and is only the first step towards removal.

It is not a criminal trial but a process to remove a high-level official, usually only a president in the US.
