What Actually Happens re This "Impeachment" Fuforal?

Beside posturing by opposing factions.

1.  Congress investigates the wrongdoer and his/her deeds.

2.  House must pass by a simple majority of those present voting for or against Articles of       Impeachment which is a formal allegation of wrong doing.

3.  The Senate tries the accused.

There have been just two former Presidents impeached.  Andrew Johnson escaped eviction of office by one vote.  Bill Clinton just went on with business as usual.

Therefore, (to me) impeachment is nothing more than a slap on the backs of the incumbent's hands. A kind of a grown-up way of saying "We don't like you. so there!"
