President Bill Clinton Impeached
December 19, 1998
I found out that President Clinton had been sued in 1994 by Paula Jones in a sexual harassment legal suit. Paula Jones needed to prove that Clinton was a harasser so she called Monica Lewinsky, a former White House intern to testify that she was in a relationship with the President. Monica had admitted that fact to a friend of hers. Lewinsky denied that fact and Clinton lied under oath that he was involved with Lewinsky.
The Grand Jury was assembled and Lewinsky was offered immunity if she testified. She admitted that she had lied and Clinton later admitted to his affair.
On December 19, 1998 the House impeached President William Jefferson Clinton on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. The Senate impeachment trial began on January 7, 1999.
On February 12, 1999, President Clinton was acquitted of both charges against him because the Senate could not reach 2/3 majority to convict him so he was able to finish his term of office.
