No the Senate tries an Impeachment.
If the impeachment does not pass the trial in the Senate, then there are no consequences as the impeachment has failed.
Then Clinton wasn't impeached?

The "story" mentioned the UN, so I'm betting it's a fundie organization, one of those "end times" groups. They fixate on the UN because they think it's existence fulfills the prophesy of a one world government, or some such.
I have a prophesy, too. lol......

I have never said that once, he was impeached by the house, and the impeachment failed in the senate on Feb 12 1999

and the intent of the impeachment to remove Clinton from office did not happen because the impeachment failed.

It is funny, we arenít talking about opinions here, but established facts. We live in a time when people will not accept a fact that they donít like.

Clinton was impeached by the house

That impeachment failed in the senate that tries impeachments

Clinton was not removed from office as stated in the impeachment.

And people still argue, it is hilarious

Too funny! The impeachment DID NOT FAIL. If it had, it wouldn't have gone to the Senate. If it had, you wouldn't be agreeing that he was impeached!

The impeachment called for his removal from office, if it had succeeded he would have been, but it failed in the senate on Feb 12 1999 which tries impeachments ( look it up )

Or are you arguing that he was removed from office?

ROFLMAO!!!!

I can't believe youse guys is still arguing this:

Impeachment is only a step in a longer process:

Step 1: House votes on impeachment. Yes = success. No = failure.

If "yes", on to step 2.

Step 2: Trial in Senate. At this point, the "impeachment" phase is over and it is no longer an impeachment, it is a Trial. Then on to Step 3.

Step 3: Verdict. If verdict is "No" end of process. If verdict is "Yes", on to Step 4.

Step 4: Punishment.

So let's review:

Yes, we had an impeachment. Since we had a Trial, the impeachment was a "success".

We had a Trial, and we had a verdict of "No". Depending on your view, you can take that as a success or a failure.

Look at it this way: Impeachment is like starting your car in the morning. If it starts, success! Now, if you're driving down the road, drop your coffee, look down to retrieve it, look up, suddenly realize that you've drifted over the center line and are about to run head-long into a bus, yank the wheel right, overcompensate and bounce off the K-rail projecting your car hard to the left, crossing all lanes of traffic and careen down the cliff on the far side of the road, you may have failed in your ultimate objective, but the impeachment--I mean--"starting of the car" was still a success.

not sure which side you are arguing on.
Yes he was impeached by the house who have the sole power to impeach
No the impeachment did not pass trial in the senate which has the power to try impeachments
Not a single penalty called for in the impeachment was carried out because it did not pass the sennate
They may call that a success, I donít.
I have never once said he was not impeached, I have said ( repeatedly ) that the impeachment failed in the senate ( which it did ) and that was the end of it, not a single intent of the impeachment for punishment called for was carried out.
Maybe it is the word "successful" they need to look up

The police officers took cover, but at least one Border Patrol agent went to the fence and opened fire on Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez, who was shot seven times, according to Mexican authorities.

Wrong

Article 1 clause 6 of our constitution

Clause 6: Trial of Impeachments


The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

When it reached the Senate, it ceased to be an "impeachment", it transfigured into a "trial".
