Lawmakers are trying to figure out whether U.S. President Donald Trump broke any laws when he asked the president of Ukraine to investigate a political rival.

This inquiry could lead to a formal impeachment, making Trump only the 3rd president in American history to be impeached after Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

That’s not much historical data to go by, but CGTN’s Toni Waterman crunched the numbers to find out how much it costs to impeach a president — and it’s not as expensive as you may think.
