Word Nerd Wednesday: Impeachment

Apparently, and sadly, there are full-grown, adult, (college-educated!) Americans who are unaware that impeachment does not mean the President of the United States is being removed from office. And so:

Impeachment: : to charge with a crime or misdemeanor specifically : to charge (a public official) before a competent tribunal with misconduct in office

In other words, it’s an indictment which has to be presented at trial. If sufficient evidence and a compelling enough case results in a conviction of the impeached official , he or she will then be removed from office.

You’re welcome.

    Doing fine–new job, computer transitions, all kinds of things. New job allowed me to ditch a 78 mile commute 3x/week. Back into lifting with Mrs. Bubba.

    Happy new year, y’all!
