That's really for the Senate to decide, isn't it?  That's what impeachment

How quickly we forget our Clinton-era civics refresher!  The House 
impeaches, which is to say, accuses.  If a president is impeached, he is 
tried in the Senate.  We've never had a president convicted in the 
Senate, but I believe the result would be removal from office.
