witch presidents were impeachedin the us
Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868 after violating the then-newly created Tenure of Office Act. President Johnson was acquitted of all charges by a single vote in the Senate.
Bill Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998 by the House of Representatives on grounds of perjury to a grand jury (by a 228–206 vote) and obstruction of justice (by a 221–212 vote). Two other articles of impeachment failed—a second count of perjury in the Jones case (by a 205–229 vote), and one accusing President Clinton of abuse of power (by a 148–285 vote). He was acquitted by the Senate.
There were Atricles of Impeachment against Richard Nixon but he was pardoned by Gerald Ford.
This was controversial since Nixon appointed Ford and in an apparent quid pro quo Ford pardoned Nixon.
Ford justified his actions by saying that an Impeachment trial would tear the nation apart.
Some people argue today that if Nixon was impeached that more safeguards would be in place to prevent the current admistration from its gross abuses of power.
IT WAS NOT NIXON, IT WAS NOT JOHNSON. IT WASN'T CLINTON EITHER. I DON'T KNOW WHO IT IS, BUT I NEED THE ANSWER FOR HISTORY CLASS.
bush needs to be!
