Oh I know he wasnít, your successful impeachment didnít do a darn thing, but you think it was a total success so I thought I would just humor you along until the men in the white suits come and pick you up. Not one thing listed in the articles of impeachment were actually applied. ZipÖ nadaÖ a total failure.
It failed in the senate that is history, Just like the previous impeachment of Andrew Johnson did.
but you want to believe they were successes and I donít want to strain your already strained mind
Clinton's impeachment didn't "fail in the Senate". It was successfully concluded with his acquittal on Feb 12, 1999.

You are truly a moron!

It certainly didnít succeed as you seem to think it did. The impeachment is tried in the senate, and did not get the votes to pass, you call that a success?

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

You may have a different idea of success than I do.

How do you feel about what you would call the successful criminal case against OJ Simpson?

LOL

You might as well drop it, you are not capable of understanding what happened.

Was Clinton impeached Big D? Yes Mike he was.

How could his impeachment be a failure then Big D? Because I said it was and I am never wrong Mike.

Priceless!

I have said many dozens of times now that yes he was impeached by the house, is it a memory problem you have? Maybe that is why you donít remember the impeachments failure in the trial in the senate?

Did the penalty described in the articles of impeachment, the removal of the president from office succeed or fail?

why... because the impeachment did not pass the trial in the senate, and that is what you call a success.

pretty funny

The Republican's elected offcials in Washington D.C. haven't got over the butKicking they got in 2012.

Taking it to the limit, GOP, Republican idiots in Washington D.C. have decided to get side tracked and pick on a FEMALE rather than deal with the debt crises.

Just admit it McCain and Graham and your other fools calling themselves Republicans

The impeachment wasn't "TRIED" in the Senate, the ACCUSED was tried in the Senate you moron...

The impeachment proceedings had a;ready concluded, that's why there was a trial in the first place.

Get a clue. How about you simply admit you were wrong and we can all move on to something that actually happened this century?

You donít like it when people actually know what they are talking about is your problem

The house votes whether an impeachment exists, without that vote there is no impeachment, the senate tires the impeachment and it succeeds or fails there.

I have read the Constitution I even pasted it in here for you since you can't seem to read it yourself.

Without being IMPEACHED there is no TRIAL in the SENATE. Clinton is IMPEACHED, he will always be IMPEACHED, the Senate cannot change that.

The Senate has the power to TRY IMPEACHMENTS- How can they "TRY" the accused/IMPEACHED if they "IMPEACHMENT FAILED" as you claim.

You don't even have a basic understanding of how this process works. Look us up when concepts like 2+2 no longer confuse you.

The problem is you have no idea what you are talking about.

Concepts like Grand Jury confuse you don't they?

The impeachment is a process which ONLY occurs in the House. That is where the indictment is drafted, and charges are decided upon. Then there is a vote as to if there is enough evidence to move the issue to trial- that is the IMPEACHMENT. The IMPEACHMENT succeeds or fails in the HOUSE, the Senate has nothing to do with it. As you say- READ THE CONSTITUTION!!!!

At that point, the IMPEACHED is tried in the Senate. The Formal charges are presented to the Senate, and a trial of the accused is commenced. The Senate then decides if the IMPEACHED shall be removed from office (Convicted) or Acquitted. The Senate does not decide to Impeach or NOT Impeach, that has already been decided by the House.

You seem to think impeachment means the removal of the President from office, it is not. It is simply one step in the TWO step process. Step 1: IMPEACHMENT Step 2: TRIAL
