Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the USA, not a chance - on account of the Senate. In the UK there were majorities in both the HOC and HOL to ram through legislation constraining the PM. No US President has ever been convicted of impeachment charges in the Senate, which is not to say that those two impeachments, Johnson and Clinton, did not have any effects. Nixon resigned before the House concluded impeachment proceedings.
