Best Answer

Under Article II of Section 4 in the U.S. Constitution "...shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

The exact definition of what constitutes an impeachable offense is up to Congress to decide. The House decides what the charges are. The Senate holds the trial and serves as jury with the Chief Justice presiding in the trial.
