2. A whistleblower makes allegations against the vice president. Which of the following actions is Congress NOT empowered to take?

a)impeaching the vice president

b)investigating the allegations made against the vice president

c)holding committee hearings about the vice president's conduct

d)removing the vice president as president of the Senate

I'm thinking a, but I know that impeachment does not mean entirely removed from the office (so impeachment might be reasonable on that regard since it is an allegation). So that leaves d, but where does "as president of the Senate" come into play? Otherwise, I'd pick d (since I don't think Congress can entirely remove the vice president from the senate on an allegation alone), but that last part of the answer is confusing me.

  4. So, actually, the answer was d. I guess it was because impeaching doesn't necessarily mean removal from office, which is what they cant do on an allegation :/
