No, I'm right! Oh boy this is fun!<quoted text>
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?
Bill Clinton was impeached on Dec 19, 1998.
Fun to watch you dig your narcissist hole and bury yourself!
