The speaker of the house

If both the President and vice president cannot serve, the next person in line is the speaker of the House of Representatives. This not always been the procedure. Soon after the country was founded, a law was passed that made the Senate president pro tempore the next in line after the president is not there. Later in U.S. history, the secretary of state was third in line. With the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, Congress returned to the original idea of having a congressional leader next in line. In 1967, the 25th Amendment was ratified. It established procedures for presidential and vice presidential succession.

If the vice president is impeached who becomes president?

The vice president becomes the new President if the President vacates his office for any reason, including death, resignation, or forced removal via the impeachment process. Note that the President would remain president after impeachment until and unless the Senate votes to convict. Being impeached is roughly equivalent to when a criminal is indicted or charged with a crime. After that a trial is held and unless they are convicted, nothing happens. Both Andrew Johnson and William Jefferson Clinton were impeached. Neither was convicted by the Senate so they each remained president. If the Vice President is impeached as well, the Speaker of the House becomes President.
