After the Impeachment
Johnson is removed from office if he is found guilty by two thirds of Senate. The President will be removed from office if found guilty of the crimes.
On February 24, 1868 three days after Johnson's dismissal of Stanton, the House voted 126 to 47 in favor of a resolution to impeach the President for crimes. The 2 sponsors of the resolution, Thaddeus Stevens and John A. Bingham, were wanted to tell the Senate that the House had voted for impeachment. The House adopted 11 articles of impeachment against Johnson.
In 1887, the Tenure of Office Act was canceled by Congress, and following rulings by the United States Supreme Court appeared to support Johnson's position that he was given to fire Stanton without Congressional support.
