The term ‘impeachment’, when used in the Congressional context, refers to the filing of formal charges against a federal official in the House of Representatives, and not actually removing the official from office. If the House impeaches, the Senate then holds a trial on the afore-mentioned charges to decide whether the officer will be removed from the office. According to the US Constitution, a president can be impeached for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanours”. Impeachment is meant to be a political act, and not a legal one, and hence there are no clear rules for judging when a president has crossed the constitutional line; this explains the ambiguity in the latter part of the statement over what constitutes an impeachable offense.

Throughout the last 70 years, India and the USA have had a complicated relationship. Until 1990, the cold war was in full swing with both the Soviet Union and the USA looking for allies around the world. India tried to resist falling into the bloc of either of the two nations by pursuing a policy of non-alignment. However, it had been widely witnessed that India had a tendency to lean towards the Soviet Union more than the USA on crucial geopolitical issues. This gulf between India and the USA further widened because Pakistan, India’s all-weather enemy, was an ally of the USA. The USA provided a crucial helping hand to Pakistan in the 1971 Indo-Pak war. However, with the end of the cold war, the dynamics of Indo-US relations began to change.
