So, if Trump is impeached by the House & not removed by the Senate, what powers will he lose for the remainder of his term?

    None. He doesn't lose any power unless the Senate removes him.

    None.  He stays president or he doesn't.  Simple as that - there can be no halfway house.  Exactly as happened with the only two presidents who HAVE been impeached, the last of which was Bill Clinton.

    Simple answer: none.

    If he is not convicted, if he remains president, he won't lose any powers at all.

    However, his chances of being re-elected will be even lower than they are now.

    Be advised that American presidents do not enjoy unlimited powers.  Their powers are actually quite limited. That's the whole point of the "checks and balances" system that you presumably learned about in American history class back there in  middle school.

    You do remember that?

    It's win or lose, there is no partial power loss.

    When Donald Trump is impeached and the articles of impeachment go to the Senate he will be tried to see if he is guilty or not guilty if he is found to be guilty he gets thrown out of office if he is found to be not guilty then he stays as president and becomes 10 times more powerful than he was! And all those people that accused him will be fired and they will have several wires after their but selling them for slander and libel.

    Zero. Acquitted means an end to the case.

    He would lose none of his powers if he is found not guilty by the Senate.
