If that was true, then it's already been done.
In the History of the United States of America there has been only 1 President driven in disgrace from the White House, that was Republican Richard Nixon.

Ronald Reagan should have been impeached for his criminal cartel that financed and equipped rebels in Central America in their overthrow of a democratically elected Salvador government in Violation of the Congressional enacted Boland Agreement.

"the Reagan Administration was not as great as some think.
The best and most tragic example was El Salvador. In the 1980’s, El Salvador was experiencing a civil war. The country was spilt- it was the Salvadoran government versus the Farabundo Marti Liberation Front (FMLN). The FMLN was a Communist group in El Salvador, so the U.S. supported the Salvadoran government against the Communists. The U.S. funded the government heavily.“... Military and economic aid to El Salvador was 3 billion dollars since 1980. Two-thirds of the 750,000 people who fled El Salvador ended up in the U.S.: many were deported back to join the imprisoned or the disappeared.” That statement alone is proof that even if the Reagan Administration was not involved in the killings of people directly in El Salvador, they were not willing to help when they fled for safety to the United States. It alludes to the fact that many civilians had “disappeared” never to be seen or heard from again. This is something that people of the world are most familiar with hearing when discussing the Holocaust.“In El Salvador, Martinez, the former rebel leader, said the U.S.-backed wars under Reagan created a massive wave of refugees who fled to the United States. He called that migration, which created a huge Salvadoran population in Washington,‘the daughter of Reagan's policies.’ He also said Central America's rampant street gangs were ‘the grandchildren’ of Reagan's policies. Many gang members are people who had fled the wars, learned gang culture in Los Angeles or New York, then brought it home, creating the region's most critical security issue.”

Talk about a waste of government money. Why is Christmas being recognized by a government official. Religious ceremonies or adornments have no place in a government facility.

The State Dept was warned repeatedly by British Intel that Benghazi was a hot bed for terrorist. Months before the US consulate attack, the British ambassadors motorcade was attacked, the Red Cross building was attacked, and Western journalist were kidnapped and raped. So Hillary Clinton couldn't fly out Ambassador Stevens because of budget cuts that were made of a year ago? The Obama administration made the choice to leave the consulate open to show support for the new Libyan government. That is the truth. Your President and Hillary Clinton made the choice to leave the consulate open and dismiss the warning signs that led up to the attack.

Are all you people that come here this stupid?

Clinton was not ever impeached! Impeachment proceedings were held, and he was never charged. He served his full term, receiving 70% of the popular vote, even while these proceedings were held!

Need links? I always help the intellectually inept.

Clinton, and Obama disregarded all the warnings about Benghazi being a security problem for months. The blood of those hero's, and that Ambassador is on their hands, and it will cost Hillary the nomination, and Democrats the 2016 Presidential election. Americans will not forget what they have done.

Yegads! Clinton was impeached (charged), however, he wasn't convicted.

And no.... his acquittal doesn't negate his impeachment.

Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, was impeached by the House of Representatives on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice, on December 19, 1998.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_of_B...

The Impeachment Process

In the House of Representatives

The House Judiciary Committee decides whether or not to proceed with impeachment. If they do...

The Chairman of the Judiciary Committee will propose a Resolution calling for the Judiciary Committee to begin a formal inquiry into the issue of impeachment.

Based on their inquiry, the Judiciary Committee will send another Resolution to the full House stating that impeachment is warranted and why (the Articles of Impeachment), or that impeachment is not called for.

The Full House (probably operating under special floor rules set by the House Rules Committee) will debate and vote on each Article of Impeachment.

Should any one of the Articles of Impeachment be approved by a simple majority vote, the President will be "impeached." However, being impeached is sort of like being indicted of a crime. There still has to be a trial, which is where the US Senate comes in.

Give it up... Clinton WAS impeached, but not convicted and removed from office.

We have impeached 2 Presidents, and would have impeached a third had he not resigned. But neither impeached President went to Senate trial. The Union led schools don't teach U S Government the way they should, and are doing everything they can to change history.

Republicans budget cuts to State Department Funding preventing the hiring of a more qualified Security Firm are the direct results of Ambassador Stevens death, and that fact is confirmed by the ARB report.

The Republicans are desperate to change the narrative from the Official Report and have drummed up and paraded the deaths and conspiracy theories in hope that reasonable minded people forget the fact as described by the ARB Review.

Enough of the Republicans theories that include words like maybe, possibly, could have been and assumed, the Facts are clear. The Republicans cut funding and mandated that the Federal Government hire the lowest bidder for open contracts.

The Republicans got what they were willing to pay for in order to keep in place the Bush 2001 and 2003 Tax policies. Ambassador Stevens was sacrificed by the Republicans to keep in place tax advantages that allowed deferments on overseas income tax due on overseas generated income and storing those funds in Cayman Island accounts.

However, there is only one American President who was such a disgrace he didn't resume his Presidency and that was Republican Richard Nixon.

The other Criminal who should have been impeached and convicted was Ronald Reagan. The Democrats refused to move forward with impeachment proceedings after he confessed to his criminal behavior before the Nation.

Clinton's impeachment so turned off the nation from Washington politics that citizens stayed away from the polls in record numbers which allowed for the Supreme Court of the United States to seat George Bush in the next Presidential Election. And we all today know the catastrophe that resulted in for America.

Clinton's impeachment resulted in Clinton becoming the most popular President in America since John Kennedy.

The fact that the Republicans in spite of the security failures in Benghazi still cut State Department funding and, mandated using the lowest bidder for security contracts at American consulates around the globe. Is the primary reason the ARB report places the direct blame for the death of Ambassador Stevens at the door steps of the Republicans in Congress.
