House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that Congress would begin a formal impeachment inquiry in response to President Donald Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for aid.

However, this doesn’t guarantee that President Trump will be removed from office. First, the House must vote to impeach. Next, a trial takes place in the Senate, culminating in a vote on whether to convict the president.

Political analysts are evaluating different scenarios, trying to determine the likelihood of each possibility.

We take your calls and answer your questions about the impeachment inquiry.
