If President Trump were to be convicted by the Senate Then does he leave office immediately or from there does it go to another vote?

If the Senate vote to convict then from there does the Supreme Court take the case up? Is there a separate trial by the Senate as to whether to remove? I know he’s expected to be acquitted but I’m just wondering in an event where a president is convicted.

    The SC has no say in it.  What the Senate decides is what happens. 

    "The Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict, and the penalty for an impeached official upon conviction is removal from office. In some cases, the Senate has also disqualified such officials from holding public offices in the future. There is no appeal. Since 1789, about half of Senate impeachment trials have resulted in conviction and removal from office."

    This IS the trial that will result in a vote to remove.

    He is removed immediately, and VP Pence would be sworn in. That won't happen, but if it were to happen, Trump wouldn't leave the White House and Pence, after pardoning Trump for any and all crimes, past, present or future, would just be POTUS in name only ceding all authority and power to the convict. There is no circumstance (not even shooting someone ion the middle of 5th avenue) that would have the GOP do anything other than protect Trump.

    No. The Senate would have to take another vote to OFFICIALLY DELIVER the decision to the white house.

    @Derp and @Marsel are 100% correct. 

    Ignore @Raisin as this answer shows him to be dumber than a box of raisins.

    He would be removed if convicted, but even then, there is a question as to whether he can appeal to SCOTUS. Since the power is solely given to the Senate, it would have to be over some issue that was done in an unconstitutional manner.  This impeachment could qualify as the prosecution never even claimed a crime.

      "..the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law."  From Article II, Section 3.  Maybe you should learn about such things before spouting nonsense.

    There is no appeal. What the senate decides is final.

    If convicted, he is immediately removed from office and the VP is sworn in , on the spot.  But that is clearly not going to happen, since the cons have made it abundantly clear  they do not want any sort of fair trial, and will simply rely on their superior numbers to end this as quickly as possible. Not a one of them is the least bit interested in the facts or convicting one of their own.

    1) Trump will be acquitted . 2) Even if a President is found guilty , removal from office is only one potential outcome .
