Two pending House resolutions would condemn and censure President Trump if passed. They are H.Res. 496 and H.Res. 700. From The Constitutionality of Censuring the President (Legal Sidebar 10096, Mar. 12, 2018): “While each house of Congress has authority to discipline its own Members through censure, congressional censure of the President is rare. For that reason, there seems to be a recurring question as to whether Congress has the constitutional authority to adopt such a measure at all. As discussed below, it would appear that Congress may censure the President through a simple (one chamber) or concurrent (two chamber) resolution, or other non-binding measure, so long as the censure does not carry with it any legal consequence.” — Joe
