5. Impeachment is merely the equivalent of an indictment.

The president then has to be tried by the Senate, with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court acting as the presiding judge (a mostly ceremonial function). The president can't be removed from office unless the Senate convicts him of "high crimes and misdemeanors" as charged in the Articles of Impeachment. If the president is convicted and then refuses to leave the White House, I suppose federal marshals would have to drag him out.
