But I was wondering if it began in the same way, with a preliminary vote in the House, for instance.

I guess with Nixon, he left before anything began?
And by the way, 'just girl-grabbing' is a disgusting way to express what happened. You make it sound like it was no big deal. The CEO of any corporation would have been canned for the same thing Clinton did. The guy is a pig who couldn't keep it in his pants.

And no, I'm not a Trumpist or a Republican and I stupidly voted for Clinton twice.

Please ask an ADMIN to close this thread to stop your embarrassment.....
The actual act - the sex - in no way affected the country. No matter how distasteful we may consider that, it was consensual and private, and did not belong in court, and not even in the news. It did not involve anything illegal, like Trump's hush money.

But still, you keep letting your bias side-track you from the question. This isn't about your opinion of Clinton.

Clinton’s impeachment began with a housue vote but it died in the senate, the voice of reason.

I'm not talking about the actual "act"....read and comprehend....he was impeached for lying....


When trump has anything proven against him....in a court of law (like slick willie), not the court of "i hate trump" then get back with us...until then, your rant is useless.....

Seriously?
Actually, it went beyond that.

He lied under oath in a deposition regarding a sexual harassment suit.

That turned it into obstruction of justice as well as perjury.

Nope, they didn't have enough votes to impeach which is why it died. No Dems would go along with the impeachment which is why it died.
