Article IV, Section 4 of the North Carolina Constitution lays out the basics of impeachment:

The House of Representatives solely shall have the power of impeaching. The Court for the Trial of Impeachments shall be the Senate. When the Governor or Lieutenant Governor is impeached, the Chief Justice shall preside over the Court. A majority of the members shall be necessary to a quorum, and no person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two-thirds of the Senators present. Judgment upon conviction shall not extend beyond removal from and disqualification to hold office in this State, but the party shall be liable to indictment and punishment according to law.

123-5. Causes for impeachment.

Each member of the Council of State, each justice of the General Court of Justice, and each judge of the General Court of Justice shall be liable to impeachment for the commission of any felony, or the commission of any misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, or for malfeasance in office, or for willful neglect of duty.

I say ..do it !!

Fred, I wholeheartedly agree. In fact, the grounds for impeachment were well established with his response to COVID-19 and his actions with the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. But the Republicans are a bunch of cowards, and likely will not do it. In fact, they are getting ready to adjourn their session apparently, with plans to reconvene in the fall.
