NEW YORK/WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Donald Trump risks losing benefits a former president is entitled to, including a lifetime pension and up to $1 million per year for security and travel, if he is removed from office by impeachment.

Trump may also be disqualified from running for office again. An impeachment trial would also put all members of Congress on the spot over where they stand on the Jan. 6 riot by Trump supporters at the Capitol.
