US President Donald Trump’s impeachment lawsuit is slowly moving forward. In the latest action, Trump’s defense team is responding to the Democratic Party and saying that all of this is actually unacceptable when Trump is elected president and wants to remove Trump by changing the outcome of that election. It should be noted that like most countries in the world, the United States has a law that the accused have to prove. And the accused has the right to defend, but the accused has no obligation to prove him innocent or innocent, but to prove him guilty is the work of the opposing party.

Interestingly, this is the third time in nearly 250 years of American free history that the American president is trying to oust the impeachment. Let’s briefly explain what impeachment. Impeachment is the name of a process in which accusations against the president are presented to the public representatives. The removal of the president in the United States must be a major crime. For example, impeachment proceedings are initiated on allegations of infidelity or bribery, and impeachment can also be made because of a major misconduct. In countries where there are two legislative legislatures, approval of impeachment from both houses is required. Since there are two House of Representatives in the United States, either the House of Representatives or the National Assembly and the Senate, the impeachment of President Trump cannot succeed unless both houses approve it. The impeachment proceedings are usually initiated by the House of Representatives, where it can be approved by a simple majority, and then the case goes to the Senate. If the Senate gains approval by a two-thirds majority, the president can be fired by impeachment. But that has not happened till date.

Two US presidents have faced impeachment before President Trump. In the 1990s, President Bill Clinton’s greatest charge was to lie and obstruct justice. He established a relationship with one of his colleagues, Monica Lewinsky, in the White House and then went about it, but after their lies was exposed, they had to apologize, but after the error first, in 1998, the impeachment movement against them was approved by a simple majority. And then when the matter appeared in the Senate in 1999, it could not get two-thirds support there, and thus the movement failed and President Clinton remained in office. Even then he was particularly popular among the public and according to the survey 70% of Americans were supportive of him.

Contrary to the general impression that the victims of the impeachment earlier were not Richard Nixon, who resigned himself before the impeachment, it was 1974. Before Clinton, the impeachment happened to President Andrew Johnson. Remember that in the history of American history there have been two President Johnson for 100 years, first in the 1860s, Andrew Johnson and then 100 years later in the 1960s, President Lyndon B. Johnson. Interestingly, both were not Johnson’s first elected president, but rather, after the assassination of the president, he was automatically promoted from vice president to president. Andrew Johnson became Vice President in March 1865 with US President, Abraham Lincoln. And when President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in April 1865, Andrew Johnson became president. Similarly, after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson became president. The impeachment movement against President Andrew Johnson also did not succeed and he completed his four-year term, although that was only one vote short of a two-thirds majority against him and that was the reason that there were more members of the Republican Party in the Senate as is happening with President Trump at the moment.

In the action that is currently taking place against President Trump, White House lawyer Pat Cipollone is insistently saying that President Trump has done nothing wrong. Apparently, it seems likely that the impeachment of the president will not succeed. President Trump’s biggest accusation is that he misused his powers and obstructed the work of Congress, the parliament. The details are that a telephone call was made to the President of Ukraine in July last year they were pressured to launch an investigation against Joe Biden, the former Vice President of the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate. President Trump has largely denied the allegations that he tried to use the Ukrainian president against Joe Biden. Trump has also been accused of visiting Ukraine’s president’s office on a probe against Biden. That is, Trump was under pressure that if the president of Ukraine wanted to visit the United States, he would have to bring political benefits to Trump. On the other hand, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has also denied that he was pressured. Obviously, if the president of Ukraine acknowledges this, then his reputation will be bad not only in his country but also internationally. Last week, President Trump’s defense lawyer’s team wrote a letter describing the impeachment process as a public enemy. The 6-page letter contains retaliatory accusations that impeachment is an attack on the public and not only is the role of the elected president in 2016 rather; they are trying to reduce their chances of getting re-elected in 2020. It is clear that the Democratic Party has a majority in the House of Representatives.

Another important point is that the lawyers included in the president’s legal team also include lawyers who have investigated the action against President Clinton. The investigation against President Trump took place in two months from September 2019 to November 2019 and then on December 18, 2019, the House of Representatives formally approved the impeachment process.

Now let’s see who the key to this impeachment. First up is Mitch McConnell, the majority leader in the Senate who has been leading the Republican Party in the Senate for the past 5 years. She was previously its leader in the Senate for 8 years, from 2007 to 2015, when the Republican Party was in the minority. Mitch McConnell has been elected to the Senate for 35 consecutive years since 1985. He is followed by Chuck Grass, who is deputy head of the Senate. Chuck Grass, 87, has been elected to the Senate for the past 40 years. Then there is John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the United States. He was made chief justice by US President George Bush Jr. in 2005 at the age of only 50.

The nomination of the Chief Justice in the United States is the right of the President, who has to get approval from the Senate, which is met. Age does not have any involvement in this nomination, and in the presence of an elderly judge, it is possible for a relatively young judge to be made chief justice and there is no qualification. There is no age of retirement of the Chief Justice in the United States and many judges have also been Chief Justice for 30, 25 years. That’s why in the entire history of the United States, there have been only 17 Chief Justice in 230 years. There are many instances in which the Chief Justice himself resigned or retired.

Another important thing is that all four of the four Chief Justices’ who have passed in the last 70 years have been nominated by Republican Presidents. That is, Alison Power, Nixon, Reagan and Bush Jr., meanwhile, and no Democrat president have had a chance to nominate a chief justice. In contrast, 27 Chief Justice of Pakistan has held this post in the last 70 years in Pakistan and the reason is that retirement at the age of 65 is mandatory and Chief Justice can always be the most senior judge. Now during Trump’s impeachment, US Chief Justice Roberts will play the presiding officer, who will be assisted by Parliamentarian Elizabeth Malone. In addition, there will be seven House Managers who will be attorneys against Trump, while in addition to the White House Council; there will be a congressional defense team that will be Republican. Defendants of President Trump include Ken Starr and Robert Ray, who were also involved in the Clinton investigation. Now it can be said that the possibility of President Trump’s impeachment will not be complete and the Senate will win them over, but it will be time to tell if Trump wins the next election.
