Why is Trump still in office despite being impeached?
I thought he was impeached. What is drumpf still doing in office. Shouldn't he be on the unemployment line.

No. Impeachment does not remove a person from office. An impeached person stays in office until the Senate votes on whether to remove them (unless they resign or die first).

Impeachment does NOT mean that the pres is fired dear.
It means he's charged with offenses.
THEN there's a trial.
That's what's happening now.
IF the Senate convicts him,
THEN he's fired.

Obvious liberal troll is trolling obviously...
Because impeachment doesn't get rid of anyone. It's the same as the process of bringing charges. Now that there ARE charges, those have to go to trial before the Senate, and that's only just started.
You don't go to prison just because the DA brings charges, do you? Of course not. You're not guilty until you've been to court and actually been convicted. And the court could find you not guilty. If the Senate finds Trump guilty as charged, THEN he's out of a job.
There have been two presidents before who have been impeached, but both of them were found not guilty in the Senate so they stayed in office. See? The last one was Bill Clinton. And the same is likely to happen to Trump as the Senate has a Republican majority. If by some happenstance the Senate actually convicts Trump, he'll go down in history as the only president Congress has ever booted out.

You need to read and understand the US Constitution like it used to be taught in the 1950s. You could not pass grade 7 without a solid knowledge of this document. It answers your questions. Had you done this you would not have asked the question you did as it is embarrassing to one who asks like you did.

For the same reason that Clinton stayed in office after he was impeached. Its the Senate that decides if Trump is actually guilty or innocent and whether he will lose his job or not. Clinton was found not guilty by the Senate. And Trump will get the same decision
Impeachment is the same as a Grand Jury bringing down charges. It is not a conviction, just charges.
Now he has to go to Trial and that is what is happening now.

While the process is not the same as a criminal trial, the actual impeachment corresponds with a charge, th trial, and then punishment (if any) comes from the senate.
