Origins of the Presidency and Official Duties

Requirements

Can a president be removed from office?

Yes. Presidential power is not absolute. It is limited and kept in check by both constitutional and political constraints. The ultimate limit on presidential power is removal from office by Congress through “Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” as outlined in Article II, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution.
