Donald Trump is facing impeachment for the second time, but Senate Republicans refuse to convict or even allow evidence into his delayed trial that will take place after his departure date. He loses the election, but
won’t concede, and may just run again. We’ve watched this man cause complete chaos for four years, yet somehow he’s still able to hold on by a thread.

Trump is obviously going to surrender his position in office but not without undergoing a cascading sequence of political, financial, and legal setbacks. Trump is not only losing his job but quite possibly everything

What does this mean? The Financial Planning Association describes a former president as someone who’s formerly held the office and “whose service in such office shall have terminated other than by removal pursuant
to section 4 of article II of the Constitution of the United States of America,” which is impeachment and removal from office. Notably, the FPA only makes convicted presidents ineligible — impeached but not convicted presidents remain eligible. This means that if Trump is impeached, convicted by the Senate and removed from office before the end of his term, which is unlikely, he is no longer entitled to post-presidential perks.

The House impeached Trump on Jan. 13. The case for impeachment now moves to the Senate for trial. “Note that all of this happens ONLY if he is removed on or before next Wednesday (Jan. 20),” Campos wrote in an email to USA TODAY. A 1962 law grants presidents Secret Service protection “for a reasonable period after he leaves office,” an amendment to the law extends that protection to former presidents and their spouses for a lifetime and their children under the age of 16.

Generally speaking, the Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments. Since the House of Representatives impeached Trump, it is left to the Senate to convict him with a two-thirds vote.
