Once it has been voted by the House, for sure.  But the trial must occur in the Senate.  Should the Senate fail to impeach, I don't know if a subsequent criminal charge once the President has left office, would be considered double jeopardy.  Nor do I know if such post term prosecution is provided for in the U.S. Code.  Help.
