If trumps gets impeached and removed from office is there any laws that prevent him from running for president again in 2020?
- Jim2Lv 73 weeks agoBest Answer
It looks to me like the constitution says he cannot be re-elected if Congress specifies that he cannot be. Here's what it says:
"Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law."
So if he's disqualified from holding office he's disqualified.

No. If the Senate disqualifies him from holding office in the future, that might stop him, but it's not clear. If they merely remove him, then he can definitely run again.

He can't run for President, but an untested loop hole is, he could run for the House or Senate. Besides the Southern district of New York is most interested in Trump when he is no longer President.

No. But if he gets impeached that would mean that 20 or more Republican Senators are willing to vote publicly to remove him from office. They'd only do that if there was significant public pressure. And if Trump is unpopular enough to get kicked out of office he'd be too unpopular to win election again.

The Senate would have to vote 2/3 to convict and remove a Pres from office. They could also vote to prevent him from holding Federal office again.

Technically No. But if he is removed, then a significant number of GOP would have voted for it, which would imply public republican support for removal. The RNC likely not even allow Trump to participate in primaries, so he would have to run as a third party, which would likely split conservative vote. Additionally, once Trump is out of office the cases against him won't stop, they'll get worse--he'll be busy.
