Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The impeachment process in the US appears pretty cut and dried, but like anything political, there are significant untested gaps. Especially when the text was written 230 years ago.

For example, per Article 2, Section 3, the president can adjourn congress. The exact rules have not been tested because previously impeached presidents have not pushed the envelope to its full extent.

All Trump has to do is issue an executive order to this effect and the whole system goes up for grabs.
