It certainly did not have any results if it didnt convict, other than to waste our time and money.
Removal from office was actually stated in the impeachment, didnt happen ya know.
and we all know why, even if you dont.
It would have been a failure if it never made it out of the House.
As it was the House impeached him. Then it went to trial and he was acquitted. The impeachment, like Andrew Johnson's was a success.

The impeachment didn't "fail".

Yes I know why he was impeached in the House- partisanship. And I know why he was acquitted in the Senate- partisanship. I don't know what you think the reasons are though. Probably something real dopey!

What a dope!

Just as the impeachment was voted for in the house along partisan lines, we all know it was just a partisan show in every respect and a waste of taxpayersí money.

If it has succeeded Clinton would have been removed from office, but it failed in the senate on Feb 12 1999 so he was not removed from office.

nothing but a time and money wasting political show.

It succeeded. If it failed, it wouldn't have gone to the Senate. Did it go to the Senate Big D? Yes, it went to the Senate Mike. So it didn't fail! Big D!

TIME TO DIE:
U.N. ADS PROMOTE KILLING OFF THE ELDERLY.

Hey all you wrinkly, middle-aged has-beens: Are you ready to move over and let the next generation have your spot on the planet? After all, youíve lived a good life. And your aging body is going to cost taxpayers a lot more than the salt you think you are worth. In other words, your return-on-investment isnít looking so good to the United Nations.

In case you havenít heard, our brains are being conditioned to look upon you as the burden you are. And itís time you see yourself that way too:

Thatís right. The UN is promoting we EUTHANIZE our aging parents. If that ad didnít send chills up your spine, the next one will. These commercials are pointing us to Agenda 21, a global strategy to reduce the population in the years ahead. Yes, it sounds like something out of a zombie movie, but itís been going on now for several years as weíve been reporting.

Disguised as environmental stewardship, Agenda 21 is nothing more than repackaged Socialism, and many heavy-hitters with billions of dollars and a worldwide influence are behind it.

It's not very expensive. We pay congress anyway, may as well get some useful work out of them!

The 2012 campaigns cost $4 billion dollars. That's expensive!

Not very expensive you say? You wanna hand over the same amount, in cash, to me? It won't be very useful, you know it would be partisan. Not enough "partisan" in the Senate to convict. Why bother? It won't be useful at all.

Yes, you can have an indictment with no evidence whatsoever, just takes a popular vote in the case of an impeachment.

And Indictment has to go through the courts to succeed, and in an impeachments case, it has to be tried in the senate, where it failed on Feb 12 1999

A shame really, I suspect we would have been spared 8 years of one of the worst presidents in American history had it succeeded.

There are good reasons to go through the expense of an impeachment if it ever becomes necessary.

It can be very useful and necessary. That's why we have it. We can just cut off foreign aid to one of the smaller countries that hates us for a day or two, that will more than cover the expense.

No a Senate tries an impeachment that is voted on in the house, and in the case of Clinton the impeachment failed Feb 12 1999 in the senate.

Again, I never said once that he was not impeached, I said the impeachment failed, which it did.

That is why impeachment doesnít happen all the time, usually a House is a tad more mature than that to waste our time and money that way on something that has no chance of succeeding.

It was a total waste of time and money.

Granted we would likely be a lot better off today had the impeachment succeeded.

But hindsight is 20-20
