So lets see...It was Republicans that killed the impeachment against Clinton even though they had the power to carry it through.

This statement makes no sense. Without at least 12 Democrats who would be willing to fulfill their oaths of office and vote for conviction it was not going to happen.
It was the Democrats voting along party lines that stymied impeachment, not any Republicans. Even if they had all voted for it it would have failed.

You halfway make my point.
-Dems vote along party lines.
-Republicans do not.

Why should any Dem break ranks if the Republicans have set themselves up for a loss right out of the gate. Still, I understand your point.

The Republicans did more than enough to stymie the impeachment by refusing the House Managers the time to put on its case. They also limited the evidence that could be shown.

Thank you Trent Lott. Thank you Rick Santorum.
