December 19, 1998, American President Bill Clinton Was Impeached

Bill Clinton was a president of United States of America and is the husband of Hillary Clinton who contested against Donald Trump during 2016 America presidential elections. He was born on August 19, 1946. He
never met his father. His dad was killed in a car accident before his birth. Virginia Kelley, his mother, eventually married Roger Clinton.

In High school, he wanted to be a doctor, but ventured into politics after a meeting with President John F. Kennedy in Washington, DC, on a Boys' Nation trip. He earned a BS in international affairs in 1968 at Georgetown University. He then attended Yale Law School, where he met his future wife, Hillary Rodham, a Wellesley graduate. The couple has one child, Chelsea.

The impeachment of Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, was initiated by the House of Representatives on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice, on December 19, 1998. The investigations involved Clinton's extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky and Paula Jones' allegations of sexual harassment.

The Lewinsky scandal was an American political sex scandal that came to light in 1998, referring to a sexual relationship between 1995 and 1996 with then 49-year-old President Bill Clinton and a 22-year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. During a televised speech, Clinton ended with the statement that he did not have sexual relations with Lewinsky. Further investigation led to charges of perjury and led to the impeachment of President Clinton in 1998 by the U.S. House of Representatives

Tunde Sholedolu

Bill Clinton was never impeached oh he apologized publicly Mr Edeson I even watched it live far back then on CNN
Lewinsky was later taken to a different ministry and was forced to resigned check your history well.
It was a planned work of Clinton's opponent then and Monica used her handkerchief to clean his semen after sexual intercourse with him.

Endee Saint Mark

He was never impeach

Akintoye Adebareh Abdul Akeem

Impeached? Where did u get ur information? Boss u don start to fuch up again?

Bulama Goniri

point of correction please, Bill C. was never impeached and he successfully completed his 2 terms in office

Tunde Sholedolu

They even want him to contest again and again if the constitution can allow him too. that's one of the best US president don't rubbish him ohh.

Endy Edeson

@all: calm down please. Being impeached doesn't' guarantee the person impeached has to leave office. For a public official, impeachment is similar to an indictment. Clinton was charged with actions that were deemed "high crimes and misconduct” but was later found not guilty. I think you can now understand my angle.

Kyrian Nemere

Please what is the difference between impachment and indictment

Machief Ayuba Mallo

Bro, there is no need defending your wrong position..
After we have ''spended'' our data reading your post which is abinitio false you still want to change English dictionary completely?

Haba!!!!

Kyrian Nemere

haaha, Mr Ayuba!!!

Endy Edeson

Impeachment is the first of two stages in a specific process for a legislative body to consider whether or not to forcibly remove a government official from office. Impeachment does not necessarily result in removal from office; it is only a legal statement of charges, parallel to an indictment in criminal law. An official who is impeached faces a second legislative vote (whether by the same body or another), which determines conviction. That being said, Bill Clinton was acquitted, the senate did not reach the 2/3's majority needed to fully process his indictment. In legal system, an indictment is a formal accusation that a person has committed a criminal offense. To this end, you can deduce that Bill Clinton was actually impeached.

Machief Ayuba Mallo

Continue deceiving yourself, this is the point I will say you have lost it. Either this change has changed you or MMM has made you lost what reality means..

I will just Allow you till January 14th

Kyrian Nemere

hahahah, Mr Ayuba, you kill me oh

Akande Bukola Debby

Always carrying fake news...my friend my friend

Bem Ternguemo Tim

Clinton was never impeached He handed over power to W. Bush.

Mayor LP

With due respect Endy Edeson.your subsequent remark was an error and per excellent infraction.. Impeachment of a person occupying a public office is termed to be an outright removal from office and as such with no privilege to occupy any office again in the future.

Impeachment is never an indictment or allegation, i would not be tempted to refer you to a dictionary to check the meaning..Indictment is a prima facial allegation against someone it is only when such allegation has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that an impeachment and subsequent prosecution of the said crime can be actionable perse at the court of law.

Endy Edeson

@MAYOR: impeachment and indictment are similar but differs also. @ALL: Impeachment is the first of two stages in a specific process for a legislative body to consider whether or not to forcibly remove a government official from office. Impeachment does not necessarily result in removal from office; it is only a legal statement of charges, parallel to an indictment in criminal law. An official who is impeached faces a second legislative vote (whether by the same body or another), which determines conviction.

In legal system, an indictment is a formal accusation that a person has committed a criminal offense. To this end, you can deduce that Bill Clinton was actually impeached.

Mayor LP

I am totally disappointed by your rejoinder. Impeachment is exceptionally different from an impeach character..

An impeachment of a government official is the overall procedural conclusion of the legislative action against an indicted official...

Impeachment itself is never a stage or process but rather you can liken your words to the process by which the legislature procedurally start up a process by which an elected official can be removed,however, the overall effect of such legislative procedural action and the success in finally removing that person from office is termed impeachment and not any stage you earlier mentioned.

Akintoye Adebareh Abdul Akeem

Boss this is why we have bad leaders. One do mistake instead of agreed and move on. He try to defend him self.

Endy Edeson

@Mayor: please don't take offence. You are a lawyer and I will go by your words. @All: please don't hammer hard on me, this topic is a debatable one

Mayor LP

Will never take offence...I appreciate your tone in reconciling our deferred opinion.. That's maturity..
