After the president of the United States was caught on tape bragging about grabbing women’s genitals, a few prominent members of the political and business community have come forward to denounce the president’s behavior.
The New York Times and Washington Post have published articles in which prominent Republicans have called for Trump’s impeachment.
Now, some are warning that the president is on the verge of another crisis.
Here are 10 signs the next crisis is coming.1.
Trump is not yet impeached.
Although the House has been discussing impeachment proceedings since last fall, the matter has not yet been officially brought to a vote in the Senate.
As of today, Trump has not been indicted, nor has he been charged with a crime.
It’s unclear what his fate is.
The Trump administration is expected to release an executive order on Thursday to remove Trump from office.
If it does, Trump could be removed from office under certain circumstances, such as if he commits an impeachable offense.2.
The House could vote on impeachment this week.
Trump will likely be impeached for obstruction of justice if he is convicted of any felony.
If the House does vote on his impeachment, it will be the first time in nearly two decades that the House voted to remove a sitting president from office, according to the Associated Press.3.
The president will be able to avoid impeachment charges if he changes his mind about his intent to resign.
Under current law, if a president resigns, the House of Representatives must vote to impeach him and the Senate would have to confirm the outcome.
If Trump does not resign before the House votes to impeak him, the Senate could convict him and he would face a potential maximum of three years in prison.4.
Trump could face a major political backlash.
Trump has repeatedly said he is not interested in impeachment proceedings and has insisted he is the victim of political attacks.
He has said that if the Senate fails to convict him, he will go to jail and that he will continue to be the president even if he’s impeached, according a March interview with the New York Post.
“I’ll be president even when I’m not indicted,” Trump said.
“And I’ll be a lot better off than I am right now.”5.
A majority of Americans agree with impeachment proceedings.
More than three-quarters of Americans support impeaching Trump for his alleged misuse of power, according the Pew Research Center.
A Pew survey conducted in January found that only 37 percent of Americans think Trump should be impelled.
A plurality, 46 percent, think he should be charged with obstruction of the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.6.
The media will be under enormous pressure to cover the impeachment process.
Trump’s continued silence on the matter, which has drawn unprecedented scrutiny from the media, has been unprecedented.
In the days following the Washington Post’s story, Trump was criticized for failing to say whether he would resign, saying he “would have to look at a lot of things.”
But by Friday morning, Trump had tweeted that he would “be taking a look at it” before making a decision.
“At some point in time, I’m going to have to make a decision,” Trump told Fox News.7.
The White House will not be in a position to defend Trump if he resigns.
The press secretary for the House speaker, Kevin McCarthy, said Monday that Trump’s statements were “not helpful” in the impeachment proceedings because he was not “in a position of power to make that decision.”
But McCarthy told CNN on Tuesday that the White House “will not be the ones to say, ‘Well, this is what he meant,'” the Associated Reuters news agency reported.
“There will be a number of other individuals and organizations that are going to take that position and we will be working to ensure that this does not come to a head.”8.
Trump may face a political backlash over his actions.
Many Americans, including Republicans, have voiced concerns about Trump’s treatment of women.
In recent days, Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon has been accused of sexual harassment and assault, and the president has also been accused by multiple women of inappropriate touching.
Trump and his supporters have repeatedly accused the media of attempting to silence him, but they have not yet faced a mass political backlash that would force him to resign or face a full-scale investigation.9.
Democrats may be able’t win a majority of House seats.
The Republican-controlled House will likely have to pass a resolution to impeaching the president, according The Associated Press, but it is unclear how long that resolution would take to pass.
The Senate could also use procedural rules to impeaches a sitting vice president, but that process would take months.10.
Trump faces significant political risks.
Republican House members, who control the House and the White Senate, have expressed a desire to impeached Trump even as they are not prepared to do
