He cannot be "convicted of fraud", that's criminal terminology.

In civil cases people bring suits against you for tort claims, not criminal.
You pay them damages for things like negligence, misrepresentation, misconduct, etc.

Even if he lost the initial battle he can appeal this thing multiple times to higher courts, and that process definitely can take years to resolve.

This is actually nothing major at all, especially considering the money amounts in dispute.

Even if Trump were only forced to pay fines to the students of Trump University...would it not be grounds for possible impeachment proceedings by COTUS against Trump?

Removing PRESIDENT Trump from office will not change anything.

Suck it up.

Not likely. In order to impeach, there must be an accusation of a crime. The civil court system doesn't handle criminal cases, and so can't easily be used as a basis for impeachment proceedings, and if the case goes against him, as long as he pays whatever fees and restitution might be ordered by the courts, then the matter is settled. If you're holding him to this standard, you'd probably have to impeach most of Congress, too.

Never mind that the GOP will never remove a president of their own party from office, nor would the Democrats.

No. Not at all.

The US Constitution, Article 2 Section 4:


Section 4 The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.


To be impeached you gotta be convicted of 'treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.'

Being sued for damages $$$ is not a criminal conviction. It's a "tort claim".
You don't have a criminal record by losing cases over tort claims. They are civil disputes arbitrated by a non-criminal court.

first it's not fines it is a judgement, they are suing him for their money back and what ever damages could be any amount.

second, COTUS best to my knowledge stands for Constitution of the United States. now if your talking about the Supreme Court of the United States, that would be SCOTUS.

SCOTUS doesn't handle impeachment, that is congress. the house brings the charges and the senate tries it.
again to the best of my knowledge, they can only bring charges for impeachment for only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. none of the case i know of against trump are those kind of charges.

ETA:
just checked COTUS can mean three things, Congress Of The United States, Constitution Of The United States and Citizen of the United States.
sorry my bad.
