What is the actual PROCESS of Impeachment in the House​?

1-Any Representative in the House can make a suggestion to pursue Article(s) of Impeachment.

2-Then it is up to the Speaker of the House to decide whether to forward it to the House Judiciary Committee.

3-House Judiciary Committee investigates (no time limit imposed), has hearings, etc.

4-House Judiciary Committee then votes whether to approve each Article of Impeachment. (simple majority needed)

5-Then each Article of Impeachment is voted on by the full House. A simple majority vote is required. If yes, then he is IMPEACHED.

6-Trial is held in the Senate presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
