Which presidents who were vice presidents did not become president because their president did not complete their term?
John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Van Buren, Richard Nixon andGeorge H. W. Bush were all vice-presidents who were electedPresident after their vp terms ended.
Next in line is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. However, in actual practice if some scandal made both president and Veep want to resign, the Veep would resign fir…st and a new veep would be appointed. Then the president would quit and the new Veep would become president. The only likely way the House Speaker would become president would be for the President and vice-president to both die suddenly at the same time or nearly the same time.
The vice president becomes the new President if the Presidentvacates his office for any reason, including death, resignation, orforced removal via the impeachment process. No…te that the President would remain president after impeachmentuntil and unless the Senate votes to convict. Being impeached isroughly equivalent to when a criminal is indicted or charged with acrime. After that a trial is held and unless they are convicted,nothing happens. Both Andrew Johnson and William Jefferson Clintonwere impeached. Neither was convicted by the Senate so they eachremained president. If the Vice President is impeached as well, the Speaker of theHouse becomes President.
The U.S. House of Representatives, by a majority vote. The Senate, House of Representatives, and the Supreme Court all play a part in impeachment. The House of Representat…ives has the sole power of impeachment, the Senate has the power to bring all impeachments to a jury, and the Cheif Justice of the SupremeCourt presides over any Impreachment.
The legislative branch. More specifically, the House of Representatives impeaches (Article I Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution) and the Senate tries, with the Chief Justice p…residing in the case of the president (Section 3).
The Speaker of the House of Representatives is the next in line of succession. .
man i dont know
NO -- unless he runs for President and is elected, as did John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Martin Van Buren.
Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton
The Secretary of State
No,unless he is elected to be President. The terms of the vicepresident and the president both expire at the same time. A newelection is held in November of the year before th…e President'sterm expires in January.
after president is impeached what is the line up to be president? The vice president can be impeached if he did something thatwarranted being impeached. He can't be impeached …just because thepresident was impeached.
The President would still be President and would appoint a new VicePresident.
