Yes, and he was still impeached. The impeachment did not fail.<quoted text>
Are you finally starting to learn... and when a case is brought to trial, it fails or succeeds there.
If we can get you the equivalent of a Jr High school education here it is remotely possible that you can learn yet.
And impeachment is like an charge, it is a charge, only less so because it is by vote alone, and that impeachment ( or charge ) is brought to trail, where it either succeeds or fails.( again less so as there also it is by vote alone )
we all know this was nothing but political from the get go, but you seem very emotionally tied to it. It really isnít all that complicated ya know.
And impeachment was brought to the senate who has the power to try impeachments, and it failed there, it didnít get the required 2/3 votes needed to succeed.
and not a single penalty spelled out in the articles of impeachment were carried out, it died there, as was known it would before all the time millions and millions of dollars were spent on it.
It died, a total failure, the removal from office ( which was spelled out in the articles of impeachment ) didnít happen. A total failure.
Now you and I may have a different definition of the word failure. But when that putty died in the senate, and not a single thing came of it because of its failure thereÖ that pretty much ended the entire affair
Tell us again and try to use less than 1000 words, who of us is "emotionally tied" to this.
