Best Answer

Impeachment is only the first step toward removing a President from office. Impeachment by the House (like a grand jury indictment) is followed by a trial in Senate and conviction by the Senate is required in order to force the president out of office. Impeachment requires only a simple majority, but conviction requires that two-thirds of the voting Senators vote to convict.
