The White House is already preparing for a possible “impeachment” of Trump, according to CNN

White House lawyers began this week to pave the way for a recall of the president, known as “impeachment,” although it’s a possibility they still see remote, according to CNN.

The start of the impeachment depends on a majority vote in the House of Representatives, which is comfortably dominated by the Republicans and who remain loyal to its president, Donald Trump, despite the investigations that haunt his first months in the White House .

According to the channel, which quotes two people with direct knowledge of these legal consultations, Trump is convinced that he retains the confidence of Republicans.
Despite this, White House lawyers consulted with experts on “impeachment” this week to learn more about how that eventual process would work.

Some Democrats have already spoken openly of seeking the start of the recall process since last week’s dismissal of former FBI director James Comey, who led the search for alleged ties to Trump’s campaign with Russia.
However, only a Republican congressman, Justin Amash, has been in favor of it.

Once the impeachment is opened by the majority vote of the lower house, which culminates in the forced departure of the head of government requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate, which is now also controlled by a conservative majority.

Congress began but never ended the impeachment of presidents Andrew Johnson (1865-1869) and Bill Clinton (1993-2001), while the possibility of impeachment forced the resignation of Richard Nixon in 1974.
