What are Donald Trump’s impeachment odds? Word has come out that there have been impeachment papers known as “Articles of Inquiry” filed against the president but has he actually done anything to warrant impeachment? After all, it’s not even been thirty days since his inauguration, so what are the odds he’s messed up enough to be legitimately impeached? Furthermore, how does the impeachment process work?

According to Inquisitr, Congressperson Jerrold Nadler of New York, a Democrat from the House Judiciary Committee, has brought forth Articles of Inquiry on Donald Trump, which is the first measure that must be taken in order to impeach the president of the United States.

The reasons to impeach Clinton, however, were pretty clear. Firstly, he had been caught red-handed committing perjury, and secondly, Paula Jones, who had worked for the state of Arkansas while Clinton was serving, had filed a lawsuit claiming sexual harassment by Clinton, which she ended up winning.
