WRONG!
But thanks for admitting you were WRONG!
Impeachment means a vote was won in the House to hold a trial. The trial is held in the Senate where Clinton was ACQUITTED.
Chargeable offenses are constitutionally defined as "treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors," a vague term that can mean anything from a breach of ethics, professional misconduct, an act against the government's best interest, or criminal behavior (essentially, whatever the House of Representatives decides it means). Officials cannot be impeached for being disliked taking an unpopular stance on an issue; some form of actual wrongdoing must be involved.
Impeachment is a two-step process similar to a Grand Jury indictment and trial in criminal cases. One or more members of the House of Representatives bring "Articles of Impeachment" (charges) again a government official, and the House votes whether to "Impeach" (indict, send to trial).
The Senate conducts the impeachment or removal trial. If two-thirds of the Senate votes to convict the official on the articles of impeachment, the person is removed from office; otherwise, the person is acquitted and nothing further is done.
See what happens when you sleep through civics class?
No, I'm right! Oh boy this is fun!

Bill Clinton was impeached on Dec 19, 1998.

Fun to watch you dig your narcissist hole and bury yourself!

FUN!

You are saying he wasn't impeached. You are wrong jackass! Bill Clinton was impeached on Dec 19, 1998. He was one of only 3 US presidents to be impeached.

Any fool can look it up. Even little kids!

What a dope!

Clinton was impeached by the House on two charges. The first being perjury, and the second being obstruction of justice. He was found guilty.

Twirl that jackasses!

Election day fun! Pass the time with Mike! And learn! Mona Lott will now never forget the difference between impeachment and removal from office. But he had to learn the hard way. But that's the nature of the narcissist beast!

I don’t know what the laws are in whatever country you are from, but in the United States an accusation is not a verdict

This is America, an accusation it has to be tried

The GOP voted to impeach, and lost in the senate where the impeachment trial was to take place.

The impeachment was a failure, which is why Clinton was not removed from office.

I don’t know if I can put it in simpler language for you.

Yes the House voted to impeach, and the impeachment trial, in the senate, failed.

an accusation ( which is all the vote for an impeachment is ) is not a verdict.

Can someone please explain in kindergarten language for him?

I was born in the USA where Bill Clinton was impeached by the House on Dec. 19,1998.

No matter how you twirl it, Bill Clinton was impeached. I don't know how to put it any simpler for you.

Straight from the NY Times archives December 20, 1998:

William Jefferson Clinton was impeached on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice today by a divided House of Representatives.

Twirl that jackasses!

Dear, we have all agreed that he was impeached.

But you seem to be under some asinine assumption that he was found guilty. He was not. Impeachment is not a guilty verdict. Only the Senate can levy a verdict of guilt, and they DID NOT. Ergo, Clinton was not found guilty.

Seriously, get some help. This is relatively basic civics. It shouldn't be beyond your understanding.

If homosexuals have the right to marriage equality, why don't Muslims have the right to polygamy?

He was impeached in the House, which means he was found GUILTY of "a high crime, or misdemeanor". After being found guilty and impeached in the House the case then goes to the Senate. It is presented in the Senate by members of the House that are called the House Prosecutors. The Senate part of the trial is overseen by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The purpose of this part of the trial is to determine whether or not the President will be removed from office. The same thing, all though over a different issue, also happen to President Andrew Johnson in the 1860's.

The end.

What a dope!

These sheets winders really do need to go.

Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson and some of the most powerful corporate special interests in the country.

They have dumped tens of millions (maybe even hundreds of millions) into their last ditch attempt to swift boat President Obama and progressive candidates.

No dear, he was ACCUSED of "a high crime, or misdemeanor". Specifically: 1. Perjury and 2. Obstruction of Justice.

Had he been "guilty", as you say, then the Senate's role (which it is not), would be to merely pass punishiment, but that is not the cast. It is the Senate that sits in judgement and passes guilt or innocence. And it was the Senate that aquitted Clinton of both charges.

Speaking of which, here is how the senate voted for aquittal on both charges:
