Since Donald Trump took office in January 2017, Democrats, the media and some Republicans, have called for his removal under articles of impeachment. Impeachment in the United States is the process by which the lower house of a legislature brings charges against a civil officer of government for crimes alleged to have been committed, analogous to the bringing of an indictment by a grand jury. At the federal level, the impeachment process is a three-step procedure. First, the Congress investigates. This investigation typically begins in the House Judiciary Committee, but may begin elsewhere. Second, the House of Representatives must pass, by a simple majority of those present and voting, articles of impeachment, which constitute the formal allegation or allegations. Upon passage, the defendant has been "impeached". Third, the Senate tries the accused. In the case of the impeachment of a president, the Chief Justice of the United States presides over the proceedings. Conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds vote. The result of conviction is removal from office.

Another Stalinist Show Trial

from The Gray Area:

The House Democrats continue there attacks on a sitting president with the hearings today about impeachment of the President, officially, unofficially, not quite, or maybe. A set of hearings designed to find something on which to impeach, present hearsay and hyped talking points against the President for the media to dutifully parrot to the public and to embarrass the President. A hearing that should be about evidence into wrongdoing is just another hearing trying to discover wrongdoing where a 2+ year investigation found none. It is embarrassing for the US Congress and for America in the world's eye.

This is not the first Democrat show trial, there have been many. This is just like the Cohen hearings.

The American people are going to see as Rep. Collins said in his opening statement, that the work of Congress, passing laws is not being done. Instead, they are practicing politics in front of the media.
