Let us try putting it to you this way...<quoted text>
He was impeached by the house, I never said otherwise, and then that impeachment failed in the senate.
like any criminal charge that goes to a trial, the prosecutors decide to press charges ( the impeachment ) it goes to trial ( the senate ) and there the outcome is decided, succeed or fail.
For argument's sake let's say I was accused of a crime. A grand jury hands down an indictment finding reason to go to criminal court with the charges. I go to criminal court and have a jury trial. The jury finds me innocent. Did the grand jury fail with the indictment?
